What do you get with the new Kindle Fire HDX?
Amazon Kindle Fire touch-screen tablet computer
The new Color Amazon Kindle Fire HDX has a high-definition touch screen display and a fast, quad-core processor to surf the web and watch movies.
What is the Kindle Fire? Amazon has been making tablet computers and eReaders since 2007; electronic book readers with access to thousands of apps, magazines, current best-sellers and free e-books.
Now, with the 5th-generation Amazon Kindle Fire HDX, magazines, video games and web pages are displayed on a high-definition screen with millions of colors. Gestures on the touch-screen make it easy to flip through pages with the swipe of a finger.
We use this as a portable tablet computer to show graphics and drawings to clients. The color display and great image quality at the lowest price are the most important things for our business. The Kindle is a very good ebook reader for work, and I was surprised at how fast you can surf the internet. It's easy to store PDF documents to use in a meeting, and access books and color magazines to read while commuting.

Wireless internet service is provided with the Amazon Silk internet browser using a wifi signal, or use the fast Dolphin Browser. Finding content is easy with a seamless connection to the Amazon store, or watch videos from any source on the internet.
Kindles use the Android operating system for a wide selection of apps and games designed for the color Kindle Fire. Get one free app every day at the Amazon Appstore for Android. Listen to the music player while surfing the net, checking email, or reading books.
Cloud computing tablet computer
The whole idea behind this new kind of tablet computer is based on The Cloud - online software and storage by Amazon Web Service (AWS) computers on "server farms" located around the world. It's no longer necessary to download and store music or movies onto your eReader (you still can). Instead, books, magazines and movies can be sent to Kindles by streaming the data over the Cloud network. Amazon created the Whispernet to quickly deliver a stream content to your ebook anywhere on the planet.
Connect to nearly 1 million e-books online (Kindle Cloud), streaming music (Cloud Player), and safely store ebooks, music and files (Cloud Drive) using Amazon's international server farms. You can play hundreds of game titles and watch more than 90,000 streaming movies.
Join Amazon Prime - Watch Over 90,000 Movies
A subscription to Amazon Prime is one of the best investments for getting the most from your new Kindle Fire. Watch more than 90,000 movies and current TV shows absolutely free. Download episodes to your computer and watch them on the road, or stream them directly from the "cloud". Another benefit is the ability to borrow free books from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library, and get discounts only available to Prime Subscribers. By far, the best perk is getting unlimited FREE two-day shipping with no minimum order size. That feature alone has saved me tons of money for the shipping charges throughout the year. Learn more about the benefits of owning the New Kindle Fire HDX.
Color magazines and library books
Kindle owners with Amazon Prime can use the Kindle Lending Library to borrow over 100 recent New York Times Bestsellers and thousands of other eBooks. The Kindle makes it easy to access a huge selection of content from Amazon like streaming movies, games and current TV shows from FOX and PBS.
You can also borrow library books and download them instantly to read on any tablet computer, with access to over 12,000 local libraries. Use any of the Free Kindle Reading Apps to access books on your Mac or Windows desktop computer and iPhones.

Read magazines in full color
Amazon Fire HDX has double the amount of maximum memory as the other Kindle models, so you can store about 10 full-length movies, 50 apps, 500 songs and 1,000 books at the same time. Kindle fire HDX has even more capacity, but who needs storage when there's the Cloud? Keep any digital product purchased at Amazon stored on the Cloud Drive for free.
The Fire is the only Kindle with Amazon Silk, so you can surf the net and watch YouTube and check Facebook. Web pages load fast with a dual-core processor and multiple connections over the cloud network. Watch multi-media Abode Flash applications with Silk (Apple iThings do not play Flash animations). That alone is one of the best reasons to buy the Kindle Fire. At one-third the price of the Apple iPad, the color Amazon Kindle is the best tablet for kids and the "most wished for" Holiday gift.
