Announced about 2 weeks ago, the new Kindle Fire HD 6 and Fire HD 7 were dubbed the most powerful tablets judging on their price tags. We did not have an idea on when in October, Amazon , was going to have them available. While I was looking for something on Amazon.com, I kept seeing a banner with ‘now shipping.’ And there they were up for sale with free shipping. Amazon also has a payment option where you put 20% down and pay the rest of the balance in 4 monthly payments. In addition you get $5 worth of video games (apps), $5 to spend in the Amazon MP3 store or get a top-rated Kindle boo for $1.
As a reminder, here is the spec list for both tablets:
- Display: 6-inch with 1280 x 800 (252 ppi); 7-inch with 1280 x 800 (216 ppi)
- Processor: 1.5GHz quad-core processor
- OS: Fire OS “Sangria”
- Memory: 1GB of RAM
