Amazon has unveiled four new Android tablets in the Kindle Fire family: two with a 7-inch screen, and two with an 8.9-inch screen.

Kindle Fire now has been upgraded with a TI OMAP 4470 processor platform processor with double the RAM of the previous generation, and a longer promised battery life, yet it comes in at an overall lower price of $159.

Kindle Fire HD 7" tablet featuring (1280 x 800) high def resolution, it's also powered by the TI OMAP processor platform, has 16GB or 32GB of storage, a forward-facing 1.3 megapixel camera, and MIMO wi-fi capabilities, which is an unusual feature for a mid-range, general purpose tablet. These will cost $199.

Kindle Fire HD 8.9" tablet featuring (1920 x 1200 - 254ppi) the same feature set as the seven inch model, but comes in 16 GB, 32 GB, or 64 GB storage configurations.

Kindle Fire HD with 4G LTE introduces the $49.99 annual 4G LTE data package. This subscription comes with a 250 Megabyte monthly data cap, and gives users an additional 20 GB of Amazon Cloud storage plus a $10 credit toward apps in the Amazon App Store.

I'd buy it if it had the Google play store installed.

And what makes this different?

I miss the days when products had originality and buttons for their product use.

yeah, well too bad, enough people didn't buy and support these original products. Else, they would still be around.
