When Amazon announced its new range of Kindle Fire tablets last month, among them was its first device with mobile broadband. The high-end Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ 4G LTE can connect to AT&T’s 4G network but, since it has support for 10 bands, it can fallback to the 3G networks as well! The only snag was that at the time of the launch, Amazon didn’t have U.S. Federal Communications Commission approval for the device! Although it could be seen as a foregone conclusion that the device would pass the FCC’s tests, it certainly wasn’t, especially when you consider that this is Amazon’s first device with any kind of cellular technology.
