The Kindle may have started as an e-reader, but the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ tablet is so much more. You can still read all your favorite books on the go, but you can also access the Internet, streaming movies and music, and thousands of useful apps. With e-commerce becoming more and more pervasive, having a device that is directly connected to one of the most powerful online stores in the world is a huge advantage in accessibility.
Avid readers will love the flexibility of being to carry all of their favorite books with them. You won’t face any more picking and choosing when you pack for a long trip or trying to find the space for just one more book on your shelves. Now you can fit all that text into a space smaller than one hardcover book. Even the smallest 64GB version of the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ has room for plenty of ebooks, since they take up less space than images or music.
If something new comes out, whether it’s a new episode of a show, a new book, or your favorite summer blockbuster, you can get it instantly streamed or downloaded straight to your device. Dual-antenna Wi-Fi + 4G makes this process even faster and smoother, so you’ll never have to wait for the latest in entertainment. Amazon also provides thousands of apps to make your Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ even more versatile. A paper book is certainly enjoyable, but it can’t check your email or keep track of your appointments. For portability and accessibility, the Kindle Fire is an excellent combination of e-reader and tablet.
