Impressive Amazon features and an outstanding display make the the Fire HDX 8.9 one of the best and most affordable media consumption tablets.
Armed with a powerful processor and Amazon's exhaustive content library, the Kindle Fire HDX delivers incredible value for its price, especially for Amazon Prime members.
The 2013 Kindle Fire HD works perfectly as an e-reader with a few extra tablet features, but users looking to take full advantage of Amazon's ecosystem should pay more for the Fire HDX.
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.
Pricing not available
The choice between the Fire HDX 7 and 8.9 will come down to personal preference. Do you want an excellent small tablet or an excellent large one?
The online retailer offers the option of buying the Kindle Fire HDX and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 in four installments paid over nine months.
The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX could be in your hands by tonight, starting at £199 if you don't mind a few adverts.
Three versions of the popular tablets will be available in Dick Smith and Big W stores from today.
The tablet starts shipping to customer homes, though the 8.9-inch model won't ship until next month.
