Less than one year ago, Amazon introduced Kindle Fire—combining 15 years of innovation into a fully-integrated, end-to-end service for customers.
Kindle Fire quickly became the most successful product launch in the history of Amazon.com, earning over 10,000 5-star customer reviews, remaining the #1 best-selling product across the millions of items available on Amazon since its introduction, and capturing 22% of U.S. tablet sales in just nine months.
Today Jeff Bezos announced that it’s taking on the high-end with Kindle Fire HD—the next generation of Kindle Fire.
$499 now gets you a large-screen HD tablet with a 8.9" display, Dolby audio, dual stereo speakers, the fastest Wi-Fi, and ultra-fast 4G LTE wireless with a $49.99 one-year 4G data package.
Amazon also introduced an all-new upgraded version of the best-selling standard definition Kindle Fire with a faster processor, twice the memory and longer battery life.
In addition to today's tablet announcements, Amazon introduced their fifth generation Kindle e-reader: Kindle Paperwhite.
Kindle Paperwhite is the most advanced e-reader ever constructed with 62% more pixels and 25% increased contrast, a patented built-in front light for reading in all lighting conditions, up to 8 weeks of battery life, and a thin and light design starting at $119.
