  • Summary: - Amazon's larger Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch tablet shares so much in common with the 7-inch version that beyond the display or the cellular data options, the lower price tablet is probably the better choice of the two.

16 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Powered by Android, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" has a single layer of glass for the touch screen that reduces glare, making it easy to see even in overhead light. It features two WiFi antennas for faster browsing and dual Dolby stereo speakers for improved sound that was noticeable in tests.
  • Pros: Great sound quality, High-resolution screen
  • Cons: Consumer testers did not like the design and feel, Limited connectivity options, Subpar camera/video, One of the slowest tablets tested

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch 4G LTE Review

LAPTOP Magazine
15 April 2013
  • Summary: As with the Wi-Fi-only version of the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD, we love the LTE model's full HD display and booming stereo speakers. While we didn't like that the tablet slowed down when trying to do a few things at once, parents will appreciate its built-in parental controls.

LAPTOP Magazine
20 November 2012
  • Summary: While the 8.9-inch Fire HD is no longer a one-handed device, those who plan to use it for watching movies and reading magazines will find its full HD display and stereo speakers to be very satifying. The built-in parental controls, while limited, will broaden this device's appeal for families.
