Stunning 8.9" Full-HD display
When it comes to HD displays, great resolution is just the start. Unlike many other tablets, Kindle Fire HD also delivers rich color and deep contrast from every angle, with an advanced polarizing filter and custom anti-glare technology.
High Definition Touchscreen Display
Rich, immersive, video. Beautiful, vivid photos. Crisp, detailed text. Enjoy your favorite content on a large, beautiful 1920x1200 display, capable of playing movies and TV shows in up to 1080p high definition. At 254 ppi, the display on Kindle Fire HD 8.9" is high enough quality that individual pixels are indistinguishable to the human eye. The result, an unparalleled 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 of 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 overhead light.
Richer Colors at Wider Angles
Like many tablets, Kindle Fire HD uses In-Plane Switching (IPS) to improve color reproduction. But displays that only use IPS still appear washed out at various angles, such as laid sideways when reading in bed, laid flat on a table, or held between you and a friend when sharing a movie. Kindle Fire HD addresses this issue by applying an advanced polarizing filter directly to the LCD panel. This results in a display that shows the same deep contrast and rich, detailed color when viewed at any angle.
Booming sound without distortion
Low quality sound can ruin your HD entertainment experience. That's why Kindle Fire HD 8.9" features exclusive, custom Dolby audio, dual stereo speakers, and auto-optimization 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 optimize the audio profile based on what you're doing, such as watching a movie, listening to music, or talking on Skype. It even optimizes the audio differently when you have headphones plugged in, so you can just sit back and enjoy.
Dual-Driver 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 stereo sound-field similar to that of a home stereo, then tuned them to better reproduce low notes. The result - deeper bass in your music, loud, rumbling movie soundtracks, and room-filling stereo sound without distortion, even at higher volumes.
Uncompromised power under the hood
HD content requires more storage, strong processing power, and plenty of battery life. Kindle Fire HD 8.9" was designed specifically for HD movies and games, giving you lightning fast performance without compromising battery life or storage.
Powerful HD Processor
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 8.9" offers multiple storage options starting with 16GB, as well as free, unlimited cloud storage for your Amazon content.
Fast, Power-Efficient 4G LTE
Kindle Fire HD 8.9" features the latest 4G LTE technology for ultra-fast mobile broadband, letting you connect to the internet, stream, and download at speeds even faster than Wi-Fi. Unlike some 4G devices, Kindle Fire HD includes support for 10 bands, so even when you're in a place with no 4G LTE network you'll fall back to the fastest available network and won't lose coverage. All this with no compromises to battery or weight - Kindle Fire HD combines the most power-efficient LTE chipset available with a custom-designed 4G wireless modem that's only 2.2 mm thin.

Kindle Fire HD offers a new version of Amazon Silk, our cloud-accelerated browser, which has faster page load times than the previous version.
