All you need to know about the Amazon Kindle Fire HD
Remember when Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, came out on stage last year to announce the breakthrough Kindle Fire - the first $199 tablet that someone would actually buy... well, we could almost relive that moment today as Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, came out on stage to announce the successors to the Kindle Fire, the Kindle Fire HD 7" and Kindle Fire HD 8.9".

But this wasn't all. Amazon also unveiled an upgraded Kindle Fire tablet which will be sold rather cheaply, for $159, and there's a special 4G LTE version of the Kindle Fire HD 8.9", which will not only feature LTE, but will also have more storage space (32GB, instead of 16GB). All in all, with today's announcements, Amazon has caught up to Google's Nexus 7, and possibly even gone a step ahead of the Android tablet competition. In any case, if you've missed the action for one reason or another, please take a look at our Amazon Kindle Fire HD coverage below - there you'll find all the details surrounding the hot new tablets by Amazon.

but i still think its not a great idea to rely on android OS with no marks of being an android, no android apps and no google experience!

amazon has 50,000 set of apps but i think it is still not good number

My main concern is not the other android tablets but rather the windows 8 tablets. Were talking a mobile platform vs a full PC OS.

wow, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7" is 199 with fast wifi and fast processor and 16 GB of storage - that is not a bad deal.
The 8.9 version is 299.00 not bad either...with some hacking either one can be changed into a proper Android tablet.
