Uncompromised Kindle Fire 2 for HD games
It came as no surprise that during Amazon’s event in LA they announced the Kindle Fire 2, which has been named the HD because it’s been developed for HD games and movies thanks to its uncompromised power from its processor and its SGX544 3D graphics core. What’s so striking about this new tablet is how it looks set to give both Apple and Google a run for their money with their iOS iPad and Android based tablet devices.
There will be a selection of new Kindle Fire HD tablets to choose from, which have been designed for your needs and also varied budgets. There is to be a 7-inch version, which will retail at $199 for the 16GB and $249 for the 32GB version. Then there’s the 8.9-inch version, $299 for the 16GB model and $369 for the 32GB model. For those looking to be more mobile then you can also choose the 4G LTE Wireless version of this Kindle Fire 2, the 16GB and 32GB versions will cost $499 and $599 respectively.
If you’re considering getting the Kindle Fire HD for HD movies and gaming then you are best to go with the 8.9-inch version, which will only be available to the US at first. To achieve these HD results you need a more powerful processor than the Tegra 3 and that job has been entrusted to the TI OMAP4470, which when used in conjunction with the Imagination SGX544 3D graphics core will help the new Kindle Fire HD achieve 12 billion floating-point operations each and every second.
The new Kindle Fire will also support multi-touch controls and also full tilt and turn, which will certainly help give you a far better gaming experience. As with the current version of Fire you cannot only enjoy what Android had to offer but also the huge choice of Amazon content as well. What will make this latest tablet even better for gaming is Whispersync as you will no longer lose your saved game or those unlocked levels you have worked so hard to achieve.
A recent article has looked into how the Kindle Fire HD will not only take the fight to the Apple iPad but also the range of other Android tablets because of how Amazon has done the best job of “meaningful Android customization on tablets.” We know that the new tablet from Amazon will also run a customized version of Ice Cream Sandwich, but the best thing has to be how much more competitive the pricing in when compared to rival Android tablets.
