Sadly, turns out we were a bit mislead by Amazon's murky language - the 7-inch Fire HD only has 1280x800 pixels.

Ok I get it :D I guess 7'' will be equiped with 4460, when 8.9'' with 4470
and please fix the kindle fire 2 version, it's still only have 8GB,

really they just pulled an apple in the fact they really didn't change design they just made the screen better.smh still looks cool and afforable but a design tweak would have made it alot better

What exactly could they tweak? Why fix it if it ain't broke?

Does the Fire HD 7 inch now have volume rocker buttons? The original Fire didn't that I could find and only use a software volume control. It was terribly annoying.

So, the 7" HD has no TI OMAP 4470 or HDMI and the LTE has no Camera and Wifi that they bragged about forever???

Specs on their page shows 7" with OMAP 4460 and HDMI and the LTE Model has Camera and Wifi.

Sorry for the confusion, we were compiling this first on the murky language from Amazon's event. It's now all updated and corrected! Appreciate your feedback.

do the new kindle fires have access to the google play store out of the box?
12. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2614; Member since: 26 May 2011)
No, just the Amazon Appstore. No Google Apps at all, as expected, this is pure Amazon.
