Kindle Fire HD Review
The Kindle Fire HD, available in 7 or 8.9 inch, was released in November of 2012. First off, the fact that it costs much less than the iPad is an immediate plus. The display is clear, bright, and, as it states, HD. The interface is also pretty cool. There’s a scrolling “carousel,” but also a way to favorite your most used apps for easy access. The app store selection isn’t nearly as extensive as Apple’s, but you do have direct access to Amazon books. That’s the major draw of the Kindle. You can both buy and read books directly on the Kindle! Also, if you buy the wrong book, you can easily return it for a full refund. The one problem I have with the design is that the camera only faces towards the person. You can’t take a picture of something in front of you. Also, it doesn’t come with a camera app; you have to install one, but that isn’t too much of a hassle. Overall, fantastic product!
