It may have taken Amazon quite a while since the initial unveiling, but now it has finally managed to make both the Kindle Fire HD and the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ available for purchase in Canada. These devices, according to Amazon, offer “the ultimate HD experience,” and the best part is that either of them can be bought for less than 300 clams each.
Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD is the latest iteration of that 7-inch tablet originally known as the Kindle Fire. It has a 7-inch 1280×800 resolution display, a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, a front-facing camera, and choices of either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.
Meanwhile, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ is a slightly bigger alternative that comes with a Full HD resolution screen, as well as a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, a front-facing cam, and the same choices for internal storage — price-wise, too.
The price of the Kindle Fire HD is currently at $244 for the model with 32GB of storage, while the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ costs $314 with the same amount of space. If your wallet thinks these Kindle Fire models are interesting, you should know that both of them run a forked version of Android that has certain limits on usage which aren’t found in other tablets. So don’t say we didn’t warn you.
