A real tablet, not a toy

A full-featured tablet that includes a beautiful HD display and Dolby Digital Audio that’s perfect for watching movies like Finding Nemo, and a fast quad-core processor that ensures fast app launch times and smooth games and videos.

Unmatched reliability

With a durable screen and rigorous testing, Fire HD is unsurpassed in durability among tablets for kids.

Hits kids love from PBS, Nickelodeon, Disney and more

Amazon FreeTime Unlimited is the first-ever all-in-one subscription that brings together all the types of content that kids ages 3-10 love—books, movies, TV episodes, educational apps, and games.

Designed with kids in mind

With Amazon FreeTime mode on, the background color and fonts change to a kid-friendly design. Kids will see titles that have been selected just for them and can navigate visually to content based on characters or topics—for example “Cinderella,” “Dinosaurs,” or “Puppies.”

FreeTime Image

Best-in-class parental controls

Amazon FreeTime offers innovative parental controls that encourage learning before play and that help manage screen time. With FreeTime, you select all of the content your kids can see, and you can limit your kids’ screen time by content type. FreeTime blocks stores and in-app payments, so you don’t have to worry about additional expenses.

Create profiles just for kids

Create up to four child profiles and choose a unique collection of titles that each one of your kids will have access to. It’s like giving each kid their very own, personalized tablet. Kids also can’t exit Amazon FreeTime mode without your password.

If they break it, we’ll replace it.

We all know accidents happen. The 2-year worry-free guarantee includes coverage for anything that happens to your Fire HD. Just return the tablet and we’ll replace it for free. It also covers Fire HD against electrical and mechanical breakdowns.

Kid-Proof Case

Designed to be durable and lightweight, the Kid-Proof Case fits perfectly in little hands without adding unnecessary weight to your Fire HD tablet.



Consumer Review
Yes, you can add camera and YouTube!!

Despite of most of the reviews say you can add any app to the child’s profile. I personally added ProTube and Perfectly Clear camera app for my 3 year-old son to use. It’s under Manage Content and Subscription> Add Titles>For Kids>All or Video, or Apps, or Books. Then you have to go to the App section on your child’s profile and click on the app icon, so that it shows up on the carousel.

Consumer Review
Nice Tablet with Sharp Display
To sum up what I will tell you about in the details below, for $229 you are getting a good deal on a tablet computer – especially if you compare it to the $199 for last year’s first-generation Fire HD and the $500 or more you can spend on a Wi-Fi version of the iPad. Overall, if you consider the price and the functionality I think this is a great tool / toy if you watch a lot of video or play a lot of games on your device: the video quality is outstanding and you can really tell a difference between this and the new HD Fire. If you are a first-time tablet buyer, where price vs. value is a key consideration, or if you are looking for an affordable tablet for the kids, I’d recommend the “regular” Kindle Fire HD that is only $139. If you’re comparing last year’s HD model to this version and it is operating fine, I’d say save your money and continue to get your money’s worth out of that one.

Consumer Review
The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is the King of all Tablets!
I’ve own probably a dozen tablets including several versions of iPads, Android Tablets, and Windows Tablets. In my opinion, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ is the king of all tablets. It combines awesome specs, great performance, a great user experience, a great ecosystem, and a great amount of value. While it does miss a few features offered on other tablets, and its ecosystem still may come in behind that of the iPad, I believe the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is the best available tablet on the market.

✔ HARDWARE:

The HDX 8.9′s build is solid and sturdy. Its light weight and size makes it easy to hold without creating hand fatigue. The body is covered in material that provides a reliable grip. This is unlike my iPad Air which I find quite slippery. The HDX 8.9 is also a bit smaller and weighs a bit less than the iPad, making it easier to hold for long periods of time.

The HDX 8.9″ offers one of the fastest, if not the fastest processors available in a…

Great Value for $139
I’m writing this review with the benefit of being an experienced Kindle Fire user vs. someone brand new to the Kindle family. In summary, for $139 you are getting a good deal on a tablet computer – especially if you compare it to the $500 or more you can spend on a Wi-Fi version of the iPad. Overall, if you consider the price and the functionality I think this is a great tool / toy if you watch a lot of video or play a lot of games on your device: the video quality is outstanding and you can really tell a difference between this and last year’s Fire.

Consumer Review
HD Fire 6 is great for the price!
For the low price, this tablet really does more than expected! The camera isn’t great; however, I always use my phone for a camera so that doesn’t effect me. Here are some of the pros and cons:

Pros: Low cost yet high tech
Great screen quality (of course there is better out there, but it looks great as is)
Smooth and responsive
Easy access to amazon prime content
Easy to wirelessly share content to a TV
Battery life
Web browser works great

Cons: Doesn’t have some apps android users are used to having
Camera quality isn’t great and no flash
Less ‘extra features’ than some higher priced tablets have

I opted to go with the 16gb version with no ads. The ads aren’t a big deal, but I figured I would pass on having them on my screen. No matter what version you pick, they all do the same things. The gigs may or may not matter to you. 8 and 16 gigs both aren’t very large, but if you want to…

Over the last couple of days I have managed to get my hands on the much anticipated Amazon Fire phone. I had being waiting with anticipation for this phone for the last few months and was very excited when it was finally announced. My initial impression has a being a mixed bag. While I commend Amazon for trying to create a unique experience and bringing new features like Dynamic Perspective, I simply can’t ignore the shortcomings of this phone and the many improvements it needs. I will elaborate more below.

Consumer Review
A review from a non-techie

I’m your typical middle-aged woman – I don’t game, and I’m not super tech-savvy by any means….so take this review for what it is. The Fire TV was easy to install and I’m loving all the features, free movies, music and simple interface – this thing even has a screen saver that comes on when you’re listening to music! We’ve always just had our Comcast cable service without DVR and occasionally used Comcast OnDemand to watch/rent movies – but I’ll never watch from Comcast again. The voice recognition software is amazing and brought me to exactly what I was looking for every single time I searched. It’s just so easy to find what you’re looking for (unlike Comcast), and since I’m an Amazon Prime member most of what I want to view is free – oh and for the new release movies the cost to “rent” from Amazon is on average cheaper than Comcast OnDemand by a ~$1 or more. So happy with this purchase!

Consumer Review
Pretty much what i expected *Has dead zone analog sticks – Tried xbox controller: WORKS
Despite its tad high of a price, i decided to grab one along with the firetv. and now im pretty sure i’ll pick up another so my wife and i can have at it to settle arguments.

I was always partial to the xbox styled controllers, never liked the playstation design. So this was perfectly natural to use.

Pros
-Feels quality
-takes AA batteries(i have tons of rechargables, some people may not like this)
-Sleeps to conserve energy, wakes up with a press.
-no wires(kinda implied for any game system in 2013+
-Pairs damn quick and easily

Cons
-it should be $5 cheaper. I know, 5 bucks isn’t big, but i think many of those who see it as overpriced would have not thought so with a number like $35 instead of 40
-Has dead zone, see below

overall, if you’re of those who hope amazon does make this into a half decent gaming machine, it’s a no brainer. I don’t think anyone should have the expectation that this will replace an…

A 4.5 star tablet (Updated)
First off, I would like to say this tablet is a great deal for just $139.99. I tried finding a tablet for under $100 that would just work properly, and to let you know, it’s impossible. Secondly, I want to tell you how I decided to buy this tablet.

I first bought the 9 inch Dragon touch tablet for 78$ but to be blunt it sucked. It was so slow that the web browser would always freeze, even if I did a simple Google search. I did not want to take a chance with it anymore and returned it after 2 days of using it; then I decided to give the kindle fire HD a chance.

Exterior: The exterior is well built. No loose pieces, and the plastic is very firm. My previous cheap tablet had plastic that felt it was going to snap if you held it too hard. Of course the iPad mini has a glass screen and aluminum body, but it also starts at $329. There are 2 ports: a micro usb and a headphone jack to plug in your headphones. The nice thing is that the micro usb is universal and finding…

Weight loss and energy
Since starting this supplement slowly but surely I’ve been shedding off weight. In the past 6 weeks since I’ve used them religiously (I’ve followed the instructions 100%) I’ve lost around 11 pounds. They’ve managed to reduce my appetite tremendously and now I have more energy at work and throughout the day. I seem to have hit a plateau but I’ll keep taking them for the next 2 months to see further results.
