- High definition touchscreen display
Rich, HD video. Beautiful, vivid photos. Crisp, detailed text. Kindle Fire HD features a 1280 x 800 high definition LCD display that brings your content to life.
- Reduced screen glare
Most tablet displays are made up of two pieces of glass - an LCD on the bottom and a touch sensor on the top, separated by an air gap. With an air gap, light reflects off of every surface as it passes through from the front, creating multiple distracting reflections that reduce display contrast. Kindle Fire HD solves this air gap problem by laminating the touch sensor and the LCD together into a single layer of glass, creating a display that's easy to view, even in overhead light.
- Exclusive Dolby audio
Kindle Fire HD uses the power of Dolby digital plus to create a world class audio experience, with or without headphones. Dolby digital plus includes technology used to adjust volume, create virtual surround sound, and deliver easier-to-understand dialog in movies and TV shows. Kindle Fire HD is designed to automatically optimize the audio profile based on what you're doing, such as watching a movie, listening to music, or talking on Skype. It even optimizes the audio differently when you have headphones plugged in, so you can just sit back and enjoy.
- Dual-driver stereo speakers
Big sound. Compact design. Kindle Fire HD features dual-driver stereo speakers on both sides of the display for a wide sound-field similar to that of a home stereo. The result - deeper bass in your music, loud, rumbling movie soundtracks, and room-filling stereo sound without distortion, even at higher volumes.
- Two antennas, better bandwidth
Kindle Fire HD is the first tablet to feature dual Wi-Fi antennas and Multiple In/Multiple Out (MIMO) technology for powerful, HD-ready Wi-Fi. This allows reception or transmission over both antennas simultaneously to increase capacity and reliability. So you'll enjoy fewer dropped connections, more than 40% faster media streaming, and be able to go further from your wireless hotspot than with other tablets.
- Dual band support
Many Wi-Fi devices, from other tablets to baby monitors, only operate in the 2.4 GHz band. The more of these devices that you and your neighbors have operating in the band, the slower your connection is. Kindle Fire HD is capable of automatically switching between the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi frequencies, which will allow you to use this less congested 5 GHz band for better range and less interference.
- Powerful HD processor
A rich HD display requires a powerful processor and optimized software to drive it. Kindle Fire HD uses a fast dual-core processor with an Imagination PowerVR 3D graphics core, so even graphically-intensive games run smoothly and render stunning scenery. This means the home screen scrolls more smoothly, videos start playing faster, and games respond nearly instantaneously.
- Plenty of storage for HD content
For an HD device, 8 GB of storage is not enough. High definition content is substantially larger - for example, on average, an SD movie is 500 MB, and an HD movie is 2 GB. Because of this, Kindle Fire HD offers more storage than most other 7" HD tablets, as well as free, unlimited cloud storage for your Amazon content.
