I’m convinced that the year 2012 was the year of the tablets. I don’t remember seeing so many tablets to choose from two years ago. My very first tablet was the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 that was about 2 years ago, at that time I could walk into Best Buy and have a handful of tablets to choose from, today you go into any Electronic store and you have a handful to choose from but that’s from company.
Each company I would say has about 4 or 5 tablets to themselves and Amazon is one of them. This year Amazon has put out a handful of tablets, now which one to pick is the problem, below I’ve put some facts about each one. I’m hope this helps you guys pick the kindle you want.

Kindle Fire HD 8.9
Rich, immersive, video. Beautiful, vivid photos. Crisp, detailed text. Enjoy your favorite content on a large, beautiful 1920×1200 display, capable of playing movies and TV shows in up to 1080p high definition. At 254 ppi, the display on Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ is high enough quality that individual pixels are indistinguishable to the human eye. The result, an unparalleled viewing experience, no matter what you want to watch.
For an HD device, 8GB of storage is not enough. High definition content is substantially larger – for example, on average, an SD movie is 500MB, and an HD movie is 2GB. Because of this, Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ offers multiple storage options starting with 16GB, as well as free, unlimited cloud storage for your Amazon content.
Kindle Fire HD gives you instant access to the most popular free and best-selling apps, including titles like Netflix, HBO GO, Facebook, Hulu Plus, Pinterest, Skype, The Weather Channel, Zillow, and Magic Piano.
Kindle Fire 8.9 4G LTE
Enjoy your favorite content on a large, beautiful 1920×1200 display, capable of playing movies and TV shows in up to 1080p high definition. At 254 ppi, the display on Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ is high enough quality that individual pixels are indistinguishable to the human eye. The result, an unparalleled viewing experience, no matter what you want to watch.
Like many tablets, Kindle Fire HD uses In-Plane Switching (IPS) to improve color reproduction. But displays that only use IPS still appear washed out at various angles, such as laid sideways when reading in bed, laid flat on a table, or held between you and a friend when sharing a movie. Kindle Fire HD addresses this issue by applying an advanced polarizing filter directly to the LCD panel. This results in a display that shows the same deep contrast and rich, detailed color when viewed at any angle.
Most tablet displays are made up of two pieces of glass – an LCD on the bottom and a touch sensor on the top, separated by an air gap. With an air gap, light reflects off of every surface as it passes through from the front, creating multiple distracting reflections that reduce display contrast. Kindle Fire HD solves this air gap problem by laminating the touch sensor and the LCD together into a single layer of glass, creating a display that’s easy to view, even in overhead light.
Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ features the latest 4G LTE technology for ultra-fast mobile broadband, letting you connect to the internet, stream, and download at speeds even faster than Wi-Fi. Unlike some 4G devices, Kindle Fire HD includes support for 10 bands, so even when you’re in a place with no 4G LTE network you’ll fall back to the fastest available network and won’t lose coverage. All this with no compromises to battery or weight – Kindle Fire HD combines the most power-efficient LTE chipset available with a custom-designed 4G wireless modem that’s only 2.2 mm thin.
