With everything that was great about the HDX 7 and more, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 isn't just a great value, it sets the standard for a media consumption tablet.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a smooth-performing midrange slate, but it's overpriced compared to similar tablets.
While the design and price of the Kindle Fire HDX hasn't changed on the outside, its been redesigned inside with a new 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor and 802.11ac MIMO Wi-Fi.
If you're looking for a pure media consumption experience, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 delivers better than any tablet before it. People looking for something more utilitarian, however, will want to look elsewhere.
The 7-inch Kindle Fire HD is already out. The 8.9-inch version hits in November with some key upgrades over the 7-inch version.
