Amazon's new Kindle Fire HDX Tablets
Amazon recently revealed their new Kindle Fire HDX tablets as well as their refreshed the Kindle Fire HD line which is now just $139 for 8GB of storage, or $169 for 16GB. With the 8.9-inch version from last year starting at $269. These Prices include Amazon's “Special Offers” tax, in which prices go up $15 for each tablet if you don’t want ads on your lockscreen.
The new tablets a have improved displays, battery life, memory, CPU and graphics processing and are lighter than their predecessors. Check out the specs comparison below:
One of the most interesting features on the new Kindle Fire Tablets is the Mayday 24/7 virtual assistance. THis feature puts at each users disposal a live support agent from Amazon. You can see the agent, but they can't see you. They can see and control your tablets screen and even draw on the screen to guide users. Al of this is available right from the push of a button. I have no idea how Amazon will be able to provide this support, but this could be a game changing feature. This is a huge benefit for those who aren't the most tech savvy, and makes the Kindle Fire an even more attractive holiday season gift for parents and grandparents. Check out Mayday below.
I know some people that these tablets would be perfect for. Any one interested in picking one up? Impressed by Mayday?
