The New Kindle Fire HDX!!!!

Recently Amazon introduced their newest addition to the Kindle Fire lineup. The Kindle Fire HDX. 
I had the opportunity to test one, and let you guys know what's up : )





I have a Samsung Galaxy tablet and I like it, but it does not compare to the new Kindle Fire HDX. The first thing you notice about the new Kindle Fire HDX is that is is super light which is great cause I like to carry my tablet in my purse. So less weight, less pain. 

Next is the awesome HD the colors are so bright and detailed that you feel like your part of the games when playing. I really love the graphics of the new Kindle Fire HDX. The high pixel density (323 PPI), and perfect color accuracy (100% sRGB) give the Kindle Fire HDX an amazing look. 

 Like all tablets its touch screen which I noticed its super fast to react to your touch and when loading and unloading apps. On my Samsung Galaxy it takes me about a full minute to load on the Kindle Fire HDX its seriously like less then 5 seconds to load. The Kindle Fire HDX has the fastest processor available on a tablet with a powerful 2.2GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM for fast, fluid multi-tasking, gaming, and video.



The "Mayday" Button. This has got to be one of the most clever inventions on a tablet yet!  Having trouble with the Kindle? Have a question about how to use it? Just click the "Mayday" button on the home screen, and within seconds you are connected live and one on one with someone to help. The revolutionary, on-device tech support, exclusive to Kindle Fire HDX tablets. Connect for free to an Amazon expert 24x7, 365 days a year

I also can't believe how many great apps come preinstalled! The Kindle Fire HDX offers ultra-fast web browsing, built-in OfficeSuite, and updated e-mail and calendar support for Gmail, Outlook, and more.




There are over 100,000 apps available in the Amazon App store...definitely something for the whole family. We like the Amazon App Store so much, that we downloaded it on all of our other devices! Did you know everyday there is a different app for FREE? We have saved so much money this way! What is great is my Kindle Fire HDX is only a 16MB but I have downloaded so much and haven't even touched the memory yet! 

The Kindle Fire HDX has a front facing camera which is great for the many selfies people like to take along with using the Mayday button and great for Skype with other friends and family. Since the Kindle Fire HDX has one of the fastest processors you have a great connection every time no more dropped calls! 


NEW on the Kindle Fire HDX - Fling movies and TV shows from your tablet to your big-screen TV using  Second Screen. This turns your TV into the primary screen, freeing up your Kindle Fire to provide playback controls, a customized display for X-Ray, or simply be a place to email, browse the web, and more while you watch a movie. Second Screen is available for PlayStation 3 and Samsung TVs, and will be coming soon to PlayStation 4. We don't have any compatible TV or a PS3, but this seems like an awesome feature!

One last thing I wanted to mention. Kindle  FreeTime. 

Kindle FreeTime Educational Features

If your kids are like mine, you spend a lot of money downloading tons of games that they play for a day and don't want ever again. With Kindle FreeTime, you can sign up for a monthly subscription of $4.99 and get unlimited access to books, games, educational apps, movies and TV shows. All without ads and without in-app purchases! Kindle FreeTime is geared towards kids ages 3-8 years old, and it has already saved me SO much time. Once they are in Kindle FreeTime, I know I don't have to worry about them asking me if they can buy something for a dollar or 2 here and there..it's all included! Kindle Free Time lets you have up to 4 kids you can purchase a family plan at $9.99 a month. 




The Kindle Fire HDX Starts at just $229 for the 16MB, but it's also available in 32mb and 64mb.
