Dolby enhanced speakers

Amazon Fire tablets are equipped with some of the best speakers you'll find on a slate. Powered by Dolby Audio technology, the speakers produce clear and crisp audio.

Widescreen and wide viewing angles

The tablets feature a typical 16:9 aspect ratio, meaning you'll see some letterboxing when reading magazines.
