Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 and 8.9 expected to be launched by Verizon


Verizon may soon add no less than four new names to its tablet line-up. According to always-reliable @evleaks, two of the tablets that the largest US mobile carrier is getting ready to launch are the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 (pictured above). In addition to Amazon’s slates, @evleaks says that Verizon will also release Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 and Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 - but we already knew this since last week, when Samsung announced the arrival of its new Galaxy Tab family in the US.

While this hasn’t been mentioned, we’re guessing that both the Kindle Fire HDX 7 and HDX 7 8.9 will support Verizon’s LTE network. Pricing details aren’t available for now, but we must note that Amazon is currently selling the Kindle Fire HDX 7 LTE for $300, and the larger Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 LTE for $494. 

Verizon has a tendency of overpricing its tablets on contract (see the recently launched Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Note 10.1), so we’re not really expecting it to offer the Kindle Fire HDX slates at low prices.

Oooh, a device locked down by not one, but TWO companies. Yay! (Actually I'm less familiar with Amazon's Kindle tablets... they may not be so locked down, so I can't say the above.)
