Description

The Kindle Fire HD is the second-generation tablet released by Amazon. The 7-inch tablet saw the light of day in September 2012 and it was made available for purchase later the same month.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD features a 7-inch IPS LCD display with 800 x 1280 resolution and a pixel density of 216 ppi. The tablet also packs stereo speakers with Dolby Digital Plus sound enhancement.

The second-gen Amazon tablet is powered by a dual-core TI OMAP 4460 CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz and helped by a PowerVR SGX540 GPU. The Amazon Kindle Fire HD also comes with either 16 or 32 GB of native storage and 1 GB of RAM.

Unlike its predecessor, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD features a rear-facing camera with a 1.3 MP sensor. The tablet measures 193 x 137 x 10.3 mm and weighs 395 grams even though it has to accommodate a battery that is capable of keeping it awake for up to 10 hours of reading, surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music.

Connectivity-wise, the Kindle Fire HD comes with WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n dual band, Bluetooth, and USB 2.0. The device runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, customized with Amazon’s proprietary Android skin.
