Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 Tablet
30 March 2015
Excerpt: The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9, Amazons latest tablet device, continues to threaten Apple's dominance with its super fast performance, a sharp screen, as well as Amazon's own expansive content library.
Summary: The Fire HDX is generally very good at what it sets out to do. If your primary interest in a Kindle is in using apps, playing games, watching movies, and reading, this really is an excellent tablet for the money.
Summary: I’ll end where I began. The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 sets squarely between the lower and higher end of the markets from the perspective of price and feature set. For my usage it lacks productivity possibility that I now expect from a Tablet. But as I said, for most I don’t think that matters.
Excerpt: With so many tablets on the market, it’s tough to decide which one to choose, though at the end of the day, a lot of it comes down to personal preference, whether it’s due to the operating system, size or loyalty to a particular brand.
Summary: With everything that was great about the HDX 7 and more, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 isn't just a great value, it sets the standard for a media consumption tablet.

Its screen is impressively sharp and its body amazingly light for a larger tablet. The Mayday feature gives personal and near-instant customer service. Some small but smart U...
Cons: The remote video viewing feature won't be ready at launch, and ad-free versions still cost an extra $15. The 16GB of space runs out quickly when storing HD movies, and there's no built-in storage expansion. Lack of Google Play access means many apps still aren't available. The buttons on the back...
Conclusion: The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is undoubtedly the best tablet in Amazon's range, and arguably the best tablet the company has released to-date. The design may be on the sober side of discrete, rather than the more premium-feeling metal of some rivals, but it's a solid and slimline device nonetheless.
Summary: Amazon certainly improved its Kindle Fire tablets with the release of the Kindle Fire HDX, and in the case of the 8.9-inch version, it’s now able to offer an experience that can easily rival its competitors and even larger tablets.
