Breakthrough Hardware Technology
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 anti-glare technology.
High Definition Touchscreen Display
Rich, HD video. Beautiful, vivid
photos. Crisp, detailed text. Kindle Fire HD features a new 1280x800
high definition LCD display that brings your content to life.
Reduced Screen Glare
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. This air gap allows
light to come through the touch sensor and reflect off the LCD, causing
added glare for the user. 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 overhead light.
Richer Colours at Wider Angles
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 laid sideways in bed, flat on a table, or
propped up in a case. 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 HD
entertainment experience. That's why Kindle Fire HD features Dolby
audio, dual-driver 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 movies and TV shows. Kindle
Fire HD is designed to automatically optimise the audio profile based on
what you are doing, such as watching a movie, listening to music, or
talking on Skype. It even optimises the audio differently when you have
headphones plugged in, so you can just sit back and enjoy, worry-free.
Dual-Driver Stereo Speakers
Compact design. Kindle Fire HD features dual-driver stereo speakers on
both sides of the display for a wide field of sound similar to that of a
home stereo. And with this much power, we can push our speakers hard.
The result: deeper bass in your music, loud, rumbling movie soundtracks
and room-filling stereo sound without distortion, even at higher
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
state-of-the-art dual-antenna, dual-band Wi-Fi for over 40% faster
speeds than the original Kindle Fire.
Two Antennas, Better Bandwidth
Kindle Fire HD
is the first tablet to feature dual Wi-Fi antenna and Multiple
In/Multiple Out (MIMO) technology for powerful, HD-ready Wi-Fi. This
allows reception or transmission over both antenna simultaneously to
increase capacity and reliability. So you'll enjoy fewer dropped
connections and more than 35% faster media streaming.
Dual Band Support
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 the band, the slower your connection is. Kindle Fire HD is
capable of automatically switching 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 was
designed specifically for HD movies and games, giving you lightning fast
performance without compromising battery life or storage.
Powerful HD Processor
A rich HD
display requires a powerful processor and optimised software to drive
it. Kindle Fire HD uses a fast dual-core processor with an Imagination
PowerVR graphics core that can process 6.2 billion floating-point
operations per second, so even graphically intensive games run smoothly
and render stunning imagery. We also tuned the graphics pipeline and
touch handling software to eliminate delays between when you touch the
screen and when the application responds.
Over 11 hours of Battery Life
Kindle Fire HD is optimised to
deliver high performance with low battery consumption, delivering over
11 hours of watching videos, browsing the web, playing music, or
Plenty of Storage for HD Content
For an HD
device, 8GB of storage is not enough. High definition content is
substantially larger - for example, on average, an SD movie is 500MB,
and an HD movie is 2GB. Because of this, Kindle Fire HD offers plenty of
on-device storage, as well as free, unlimited cloud storage for your
