Amazon has launched its Kindle Fire HD (pictured above) and Kindle Fire HD 8.9 tablets in India.
Kindle Fire HD comes with a 7.0-inch display and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor alongside 1GB RAM.
The Kindle Fire HD is built from high grade plastic that exudes quality.
Kindle Fire HD runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but comes with a completely different UI that puts content like movies, books, music and apps at the centre.
Kindle Fire HD comes with a front camera that's good enough for video calling. It has no rear camera.
Connectivity options on the Kindle Fire HD include Micro-USB, Micro-HDMI, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The power and volume buttons are completely flush with the body, which means they can be a little hard to locate when you are using the tablet.
Kindle Fire HD comes with Special Offers (ads) that display on the lock screen when the tablet is switched on. You can ignore the ads and simply swipe to unlock the tablet.
Though Kindle Fire HD runs on Android, you cannot install apps from Google Play. Instead, you can install apps from Amazon's own Appstore.
You can purchase books from Amazon's massive library of books.
