Kindle Fire HDX 7 in a nutshell

By Updated on

Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX 7 is one of two sizes available to pre-order in the US, and this third generation of Amazon’s Kindle Fire line comes in 7″ and 8.9″ models. The 7″ model will be released on October 18, and the 8.9″ models will be released on November 7, so to get a decent perspective on this we have looked towards the popular YouTube channel to see if we can prise a video that will give us some insight into all aspects of this new device.

Below this article we have embedded a short but informative video that discusses the improved smaller design as well as the enhanced faster performance. With a sharp screen and a near enough instant customer service the video highlights how this device aims to build on the success of previous Fire incarnations and rectify any issues that came with them.

Lasting around 4 minutes we get the impression this is a vast improvement on previous Kindle instalments and we understand there is 3 versions that potential consumers may want to take note of. There is a 16GB version for $229, a 32GB version for $269 and a 64GB edition for $309, although we can understand concerns that there is a button on each for instant customer service, which doesn’t exactly fill us with confidence.

According to reports the Kindle Fire HDX 7 is smaller, lighter and thinner than the previous 7 inch version and boasts a 1920 by 1200 resolution screen. Both the power and volume buttons have been moved to the back of the device making this another decent improvement, although those used to the previous versions may find this takes a bit of getting used to.

It is viewed as a more comfortable fit in the hand, and the high resolution all menu items are now on view at once. In addition, the 16GB storage space is now becoming too small for those wanting to store HD content and the presenter highlights the 1080p version of The Avengers which would not fit, as he settles for it in 720p.

It is worth mentioning that they feel this product requires more testing before they can make a decent review of the Kindle Fire HDX 7, so on first impressions do you feel this is a worthy addition to the world of tablets? Or do you prefer other more established tablets?

    The fact that these have an option for instant customer service doesn’t inspire confidence? That makes no sense, and you did not further explain. You don’t think it will be fast? Or useful? Or you are afraid customer service will spy on you? The camera is not available to the customer service feature, only the screen. The help session cannot be initiated by the agent, it must be the user, and if you’re still worried, you can disable the feature altogether.
