Amazon hasn’t been known to make a profit, but the e-tailer’s move into hardware may finally be showing signs of making it a legitimate player in the space. The original Kindle was a nifty tool, but all it did was act as a vehicle to sell you e-books on Amazon. The Kindle Fire tablets improved things, but it wasn’t until the new Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 that Amazon really seemed to earn its place with “the big guys.” Don’t believe it? You can see for yourself if you win this free Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 that we’re giving away in this new contest.
The Fire HDX 8.9 is a big device, a product more akin to an iPad or Surface than one of the e-readers of yore. Amazon had taken initial steps in this direction a few iterations ago, but the HDX 8.9 is the first (literally) big development on the screen-size front.
With that larger screen size, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is a great tool for both watching movies and playing games. Yes, you can obviously still read e-books on it, but with the 2.5 GHz quad-core processor and Dolby Atmos stereo sound, flipping digital pages is a total waste on this tablet.
One of the more interesting things to note about the new Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is its 802.11ac Wi-Fi. Using this new technology, Amazon’s newest tablet can stream HD movies, live-stream music to speakers and transfer photos up to four times faster than the previous generation Fire HDX 8.9.
The big thing in our circles, of course, will be playing games. And in that regard, this new tablet seems to have all its bases covered. The new Adreno 420 GPU has a 70% better graphics performance than the previous generation Fire HDX 8.9. That’s music to our ears, especially since the device retails for $379. At that price, we (and others) want some powerful hardware. Of course, you could win this contest and not have to pay a thing….
