Amazon reported today their 7- and 8.9-inch Kindle Hdx tablets are presently accessible for preorder and will start transporting by November 26th.


The organization totally upgraded their tablet lineup with the Hdx, emphasizing tremendously enhanced specs and another Fire Os 3.0 that is dependent upon Android 4.2.


Canadians don't have entry to the same group of substance that Americans do — we can't buy music or motion pictures straight from Amazon, for instance — and the organization's App Store does not match the broadness of titles accessible on Google Play, yet the tablets are extraordinary quality in any case.


The 7-inch tablet, which brandishes a 2.2ghz Snapdragon 800 processor, a 1920×1200 pixel show, 2gb of Ram, double band Wifi, a front-confronting Hd Polaroid, and 11 hours of electric cell life, will begin at $254 Cdn for the 16gb model, set up to $294 for the 32gb rendition and $334 for the 64gb model. Conversely, the passage level Nexus 7, which has the same screen estimate yet a marginally slower processor, offers for $229 and offers free ground transporting, as well.


Maybe additionally contraining is the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire Hdx, which offers the same specs as the more modest rendition however expands the screen determination to a shocking 2560×1600 pixels and includes a 8mp back Polaroid. It begins at $399 for the 16gb variant and builds by $50 additions for the 32gb and 64gb models individually.


Both models are made of a magnesium composite and are exceptionally light, and the new Fire Os 3.0 is absolutely a change, both as far as speed and emphasizes, over the past models (which will likewise be redesigned in due time), yet there are few urging motivations to pick the Kindles over other Android tablets, particularly the Nexus 7, because of constrained substance accessibility.


We'll be inspecting the tablets when they're discharged in November, so our conclusion may change, however confidently Amazon understands that Canadians need access to the same content — motion pictures and music particularly — as their American partners.


Notwithstanding discharging the new tablets, Amazon has brought down the cost of its existing 7-inch Kindle Fire Hd, starting at $149 for the 8gb model and climbing to $179 for the 16gb adaptation. While slower and less sharp than the new Hdx variants, the Kindle Fire Hd will start delivering with the new Fire Os 3.0 starting October 24, and ought to be an extraordinary for holidays.
