The new Kindle Fire HD is a feature-packed HD tablet at a breakthrough price. There’s more to enjoy than ever before with a stunning HD display, faster performance, lighter design and longer battery life than the previous Kindle Fire.
Stunning HD Display
Rich, HD video. Beautiful, vivid photos. Crisp, detailed text. Kindle Fire HD features a new 1280×800 high-definition LCD display with over one million pixels that brings your content to life. We’ve ensured you have a great viewing experience at all angles through an innovative combination of IPS (in-plane switching) technology, an advanced polarising filter and anti-glare technology.
Kindle Fire HD is over 60% faster than the previous generation Kindle Fire – a fast dual-core processor and an Imagination PowerVR 3D graphics core ensure games and videos run smoothly.
Longer Battery Life
The Kindle Fire HD battery lasts for up to 10 hours of reading, web surfing over Wi-Fi, video watching or music playback.
Streamlined New Design
Kindle Fire HD features a smaller bezel, cleaner lines and optimised button placements. This all-new, streamlined design helps Kindle Fire HD disappear in your hands, so you can lose yourself in your entertainment.
Customised Dolby Audio
Kindle Fire HD uses the power of Dolby Digital Plus to create a world-class audio experience. Dolby Digital Plus includes technology that adjusts volume, creates virtual surround sound and delivers easier-to-understand dialogue in films and TV shows. Kindle Fire HD is designed to optimise the audio profile automatically based on what you’re doing (with or without headphones), such as watching a film or listening to music.
With a light, durable design and Kindle FreeTime, Kindle Fire HD is easy to share with everyone in your family
Perfect for Parents
NEW – Kindle FreeTime is a new service, built to help give parents peace of mind when it comes to tablet use. Parents can create a profile for each of their children and choose what content they want to give their kids access to. Kindle FreeTime is free on the new Kindle Fire HD. Coming soon, parents will be able to shop tens of thousands of hit movies and the latest TV shows and add them to FreeTime.
…And Perfect for Kids
When kids use Kindle FreeTime, it’s like they have their very own, personalised tablet. The background colour and fonts change to a kid-friendly design. They only see the titles that they have access to see. The Home screen carousel shows their recently viewed titles. And they can even navigate visually to content based on characters or topics – for example, “Cinderella”, “Dinosaurs”, or “Puppies”.
Put Learning First
NEW – Educational tools help put learning first with Kindle FreeTime. New, more advanced time limits allow parents to set daily educational goals for reading and playing educational games, while blocking entertainment content till the educational goals are met. Parents can also set different time limits for different days of the week, as well as set a new Bedtime so that Kindle Freetime only works during the time of day you choose.
Light and Durable
Weighing just 345 grams, Kindle Fire HD is lighter than ever and comfortable to hold in one hand. It is also designed to stand up to accidental bumps and scrapes. Our state-of-the art display is 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic, so you can let your child play without worry.
