Kindle Fire HD is over 60% faster than the previous generation Kindle Fire—a fast dual-core processor and an Imagination PowerVR 3D graphics core ensure games and video run smoothly.
Longer Battery Life
The Kindle Fire HD battery lasts longer than the previous generation Kindle Fire—up to 10 hours of reading, surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music.
Streamlined New Design
Kindle Fire HD features a smaller bezel, cleaner lines, and optimized button placements. This all-new, streamlined design helps Kindle Fire HD disappear in your hands, so you can get lost in your viewing.
Custom Dolby Audio
Kindle Fire HD uses the power of Dolby Digital Plus to create a world class audio experience. Kindle Fire HD is designed to automatically optimize the audio profile based on what you’re doing (with or without headphones), such as watching a movie or listening to music.
Perfect for the entire family
Kindle FreeTime is free on every new Kindle Fire. Parents can create a profile for each of their children and choose what books, apps, games, and videos they want to give their kids access to. Parents can also set daily limits for tablet use, or restrict certain categories-like games and video-while leaving unlimited time for reading.
With every Kindle Fire you can stay connected with a cloud-optimized web browser, our new e-mail app and full social media integration.
Silk, a cloud-optimized web browser, is faster and packed with new features like Reading View that removes all unnecessary images and other website clutter for a clean, easy-to-read version of the site.
