The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is a tablet manufactured by Amazon that has a lot of aspects unique to it in the market. Before considering it, however, it should be noted that this is an Amazon product and thus has its own operating system. While this is definitely an Android device, the actual ecosystem provided for the tablet to run on is 100% Amazon and unique to the company. So, for example, you will need an email app to then install something like Gmail. However, it also has a number of apps unique to its Amazon platform.
This tablet still comes with plenty of amazing pieces of hardware like integrated 4G LTE for much faster Wi-Fi speeds and can provide up to 16GB of storage. The HDX 8.9 screen also stands out amongst this tablet’s offerings. The high-resolution display, paired with this device’s speakers, make it great for Hulu, Netflix or other video apps. Whether you’re just looking at the home screen or playing a game, you get vibrant colors and crisp contrasts. It will even perform this way whether you’re holding it as a portrait or landscape.
The 8.9 inch screen on this device is comparable to other popular options like the iPad Air, which is just slightly bigger. Yet, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 weighs far less. This makes it especially good for reading lengthy articles or books or just watching a movie.
Lastly, the Mayday Button is the equivalent of immediate customer support. By clicking it, an Amazon tech advisor pops up live on your screen (they can’t see you though) and can talk you through your question, draw on your screen or simply handle the directions themselves. It’s 100% free and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
