But wait, what’s a quad-core CPU, you ask? Well, let me break it down for you. A CPU, or Central Processing Unit, is like the brain of a computer or tablet. It’s responsible for carrying out all the tasks and calculations that make your device work. And when you have a quad-core CPU, it means you have not one, not two, not three, but four brains working together to give you some serious computing power. It’s like having a whole team of experts working to make sure your tablet runs smoothly and quickly.

So, what does all this power mean for you? Well, it means you can do more with your Kindle Fire HDX tablet than ever before. You’ll be able to multitask like a pro, running multiple apps at the same time without any lag or slowdown. Whether you’re browsing the web, streaming movies, playing games, or reading your favorite books, everything will be faster and smoother than ever.

And that’s not all. Amazon has also made some other awesome improvements to the 2013 Kindle Fire HDX tablets. They have stunning high-definition displays that bring your movies and games to life with vibrant colors and crisp details. Plus, they have long battery life, so you won’t have to worry about your tablet dying on you in the middle of a movie marathon.

Now, I know you’re probably thinking, “How much is all this greatness going to cost me?” Well, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Amazon has managed to pack all these amazing features into their Kindle Fire HDX tablets without breaking the bank. They are affordable without compromising on quality, making them a great choice for anyone looking for a powerful and reliable tablet.

So, if you’re in the market for a new tablet, look no further than the 2013 Kindle Fire HDX. With its quad-core CPU, stunning display, and long battery life, it’s a real game-changer. I can’t wait to get my hands on one, and I’m sure you’ll feel the same way once you experience all the awesomeness it has to offer. Happy tablet shopping!

Amazon Unveils 2013 Kindle Fire HDX Tablets with Quad-Core CPUs

Guess what? Amazon just announced its latest lineup of Kindle Fire tablets, and they’re packing some seriously awesome features. It’s all part of CEO Jeff Bezos’s genius plan to give us both amazing Amazon devices and incredible content.

Let’s Talk Kindle Fire HD

So, let’s kick things off with the entry-level tablet, the Kindle Fire HD. Now, this new model may not have any big technical upgrades, but Amazon did make a few important changes:

  • A fresh new design with a cool trapezoidal back frame
  • A speedy 1.5 GHz Dual-Core Processor
  • Up to 10 hours of battery life for all your reading and streaming needs

2013 Kindle Fire HD

Let me tell you about the new Kindle Fire HD. The display is still the same, with a resolution of 1280-by-800. You can choose between 8 or 16 GB of storage. But here’s the thing, this new Kindle Fire HD can’t compete with its premiere siblings. However, it’s still a great entry-level device, especially considering the affordable price of $139 for the 8 GB option or $169 for the 16 GB option.

Now, let’s talk about the Kindle Fire HDX.

The Kindle Fire HDX models have made some impressive improvements. Firstly, they have high resolution displays that beat Apple’s current generation iPad when it comes to pixel density. The 7-inch model has a resolution of 1920-by-1200, while the 8.9-inch model boasts 2560-by-1600. That’s pretty amazing, right?

Not only that, but they also have 2.2 GHz Quad-Core Processors and a Qualcomm Adreno 330 Graphics Processor. This means they’re super fast and can handle all your tasks with ease. And let’s not forget about the incredible battery life. You get 11 hours of “mixed use” battery life or a whopping 17 hours of battery life in “reading mode”. That’s perfect for long trips or lazy weekends filled with your favorite books.

What’s more, the Kindle Fire HDX models are incredibly light. The 7-inch model weighs only 10.7 ounces, while the 8.9-inch model is just 13.2 ounces. So, you can take them anywhere without feeling weighed down.

Another cool feature is the new high-contrast display mode. It makes it much easier to see the screen even in direct sunlight. So you can enjoy reading or watching videos outdoors without any problem.

And if all of that wasn’t impressive enough, the Kindle Fire HDX models also offer LTE mobile data options from both Verizon and AT&T. This means you can stay connected wherever you go.

But here comes the best part, the prices. The 7-inch Wi-Fi only model starts at $229 for the 16 GB option, $269 for 32 GB, and $309 for 64 GB. If you prefer the 8.9-inch model, it starts at $379 for 16 GB, $429 for 32 GB, and $479 for 64 GB. And if you want the LTE capability, just add $100 to each of these prices.

So, as you can see, the Kindle Fire HD and the Kindle Fire HDX are both incredible devices, each with its own strengths and features. It all comes down to what you’re looking for in a tablet. Whatever your choice, you won’t be disappointed with these Kindle Fire options.

2013 Kindle Fire HDX

When comparing Amazon’s Kindle Fire line to Apple’s iPad line, it’s important to consider more than just the technical specifications. One major difference is the pricing. For example, a 64 GB 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX with LTE costs $409, while the current generation iPad mini costs $659. And if you’re looking for something bigger, a fully-loaded 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HDX is $579, compared to $829 for the full-sized fourth-generation iPad. Both Kindles offer displays and performance that are on par with, or even better than, the iPad.

Fire OS 3.0 ‘Mojito’

Amazon’s custom-modified Kindle Fire operating system, known as “Mojito,” is based on Android and is now in its third version. While it will be familiar to existing Kindle Fire owners, it also brings several key features:

  • A new optional grid view for content
  • A “Quick Switch” interface that allows users to easily navigate recently-accessed content
  • A “Mayday” customer support feature that enables users to share their Kindle Fire screen remotely with an Amazon support representative
  • A “Second Screen” feature that allows users to “fling” content from their Kindle Fire to their TV, using supported products like PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and select Samsung Smart TVs
  • New enterprise features like VPN and Kerberos authentication
  • Built-in Goodreads support, which will be available in mid-November as part of a planned Fire OS 3.1 update

Out of all the new features, the “Mayday” feature is arguably the most important. Since Amazon doesn’t have physical retail stores like Apple, they focused on providing remote support. As Mr. Bezos explained:

Kindle Fire HDX also introduces the revolutionary new “Mayday” button. With a single tap, an Amazon expert will appear on your Fire HDX and can guide you through any feature by drawing on your screen, showing you how to do something yourself, or even doing it for you. Mayday is available 24/7, 365 days a year, and it’s free.

Customer privacy is protected with a one-way video feature. Customers can see the Amazon support representative, but the representative cannot see them. And if a support session ever requires the customer to enter a password, the screen sharing can be temporarily paused to ensure security.

Kindle Fire OS 3.0 Mayday

Mayday seems to be a pretty neat feature that might even be better than going to Apple’s Genius Bar, at least if Amazon can get enough staff for all the people who want to use it. They’ve got some videos showing how it works on their Kindle Fire website.

The new Kindle Fire HDX and 2013 HD models will come with Fire OS 3.0. We don’t know yet if older models will get the update, but the folks at Amazon hinted to Engadget that they might release it for existing users sometime in the future.

You can pre-order all the new Kindle Fire models now, but Amazon is going to be releasing them over the next couple of months. The Kindle Fire HD will start shipping on October 2nd, followed by the 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX on October 18th, and finally the 8.9-inch HDX on November 14th.

They didn’t mention anything about updating the regular 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD. You can still buy that one with last year’s stuff for $269.
