When it comes to HD displays, great resolution is just the start. Kindle Fire HD also delivers rich colour and deep contrast from every angle, with an advanced polarising filter and customised anti-glare technology.
High-Definition Touchscreen Display
Stunning HD display - Rich, immersive, video. Beautiful, vivid photos. Crisp, detailed text. Enjoy your favourite content on a large, beautiful 1920x1200 display with 254 ppi, capable of playing films and TV shows in up to 1080p high definition. The result, an outstanding viewing experience, no matter what you want to watch.
Reduced Screen Glare
Most tablet displays are made up of two pieces of glass – an LCD on the bottom and a touch sensor on the top, separated by an air gap. With an air gap, light reflects off every surface as it passes through from the front, creating multiple distracting reflections that reduce display contrast. Kindle Fire HD solves this air gap problem by laminating the touch sensor and the LCD together into a single layer of glass, creating a display that's easy to view, even in direct light.
Richer Colours at Wider Angles
Like many tablets, Kindle Fire HD uses In-Plane Switching (IPS) to improve colour reproduction - but displays that only use IPS still appear washed out at various angles, such as when laid sideways for reading in bed, flat on a table, or held between you and a friend when sharing a film. Kindle Fire HD addresses this issue by applying an advanced polarising filter directly to the LCD panel. This results in a display that shows the same deep contrast and rich, detailed colour when viewed at any angle.
Low-quality sound can ruin your enjoyment of HD entertainment. That's why Kindle Fire HD 8.9" features exclusive, customised Dolby audio, dual stereo speakers and auto-optimisation software for clear, crisp, balanced audio.
Exclusive Dolby Audio
Kindle Fire HD uses the power of Dolby Digital Plus to create a world-class audio experience, with or without headphones. Dolby Digital Plus includes technology used to adjust volume, create virtual surround sound and deliver easier-to-understand dialogue in films and TV shows. Kindle Fire HD is designed to optimise the audio profile automatically based on what you are doing, such as watching a film, listening to music or talking on Skype. Audio is even optimised differently when you have headphones plugged in, so you can just sit back and enjoy it.
Powerful Dual Stereo Speakers
Big sound. Compact design. With Kindle Fire HD 8.9", we put stereo speakers on both sides of the display for a wide field of stereo sound, similar to that of a home stereo, then tuned them to reproduce low notes better. The result: deeper bass in your music; loud, rumbling film soundtracks; and room-filling stereo sound without distortion, even at higher volumes.
When it comes to HD content, bandwidth is everything. Without it, you get video buffering, slow downloads, and dropped connections. Kindle Fire HD solves that by using cutting-edge, dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi
Two Antennas, Better Bandwidth
Kindle Fire HD is the first tablet to feature dual Wi-Fi antennas and Multiple In/Multiple Out (MIMO) technology for powerful, HD-ready Wi-Fi. This allows for reception or transmission over both antennas simultaneously to increase capacity and reliability. So you'll enjoy fewer dropped connections and fast media streaming.
Many Wi-Fi devices, from other tablets to baby monitors, only operate in the 2.4 GHz band. The more of these devices that you and your neighbours have operating in that band, the slower your connection. Kindle Fire HD is capable of switching automatically between the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi frequencies, which will allow you to use this less-congested 5 GHz band for better range and less interference.
HD content requires more storage, strong processing power and plenty of battery life. Kindle Fire HD 8.9" was designed specifically for HD films and games, giving you lightning-fast performance without compromising on battery life or storage.
Powerful HD Processor
A rich HD display requires a powerful processor to drive it. The TI OMAP4470 processor in the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" device has 40% more memory bandwidth than Tegra 3, enabling fast web browsing performance. And Kindle Fire HD 8.9" has an Imagination SGX544 3D graphics core that can process over 12 billion floating-point operations per second, so even graphically intensive games run smoothly and render stunning scenery. We've also tuned the graphics pipeline and touch handling software to eliminate delays between your touching the screen and the application responding. This means the Home screen scrolls more smoothly, videos start playing faster and games respond nearly instantaneously.
Over 10 Hours of Battery Life
Kindle Fire HD is optimised to deliver high performance with low battery consumption, delivering over 10 hours’ worth of video watching, web browsing, music playback or reading.
Plenty of Storage for HD Content
For an HD device, 8 GB of storage is not enough. High-definition content is substantially larger - for example, on average, an SD film is 500 MB and an HD film is 2 GB. This is why Kindle Fire HD 8.9" offers multiple storage options starting with 16 GB as well as free, unlimited Cloud storage for your Amazon content.
