Learn more about Kindle Fire HDX

Breakthrough HDX Display

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" has the highest resolution (2560x1600) and the best pixel density (339 ppi) of any Kindle Fire tablet, providing an incredible multimedia experience. The HDX display features over 4 million pixels for vivid, lifelike images that go beyond standard HD.

Perfect Colour Accuracy

Both the 7" and 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX displays feature perfect colour accuracy(100% sRGB), displaying images and videos as the photographer or videographer intended.

Better Viewing Indoors and Out

The HDX display features dynamic image contrast, a unique feature that automatically optimizes the colour of each pixel based on the amount of light in your surroundings. This makes images and videos even easier to see in any lighting conditions, including outdoors.

Astonishingly Light

At 374 grams, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" is 34% lighter than the previous generation. To achieve this revolutionary light weight, Amazon integrated the capacitive touch layer directly into the glass display, and created a unique magnesium unibody from a single piece of machined magnesium and a blend of glass and nylon—the same material used in high-performance race cars. The result is a light, durable, portable tablet.

Smaller Bezel, Cleaner Lines

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" is engineered for increased usability, and features an all-new design with a smaller bezel, cleaner lines, and optimized button and charger port placements. Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" is designed to disappear in your hands, so you can get lost in your viewing experience.

Powerful Quad-Core Processor

Kindle Fire HDX tablets are the first tablets to be powered by the 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, making them the first to clock in at over 2 GHz. It provides 3x more processing power than the previous-generation Kindle Fire HD and, combined with 2GB of RAM, provides faster app launch times, quicker website load times, smoother multi-tasking, and better overall performance.

Console-Quality Graphics

The new Adreno 330 graphics processor on Kindle Fire HDX delivers high frame rates and console quality graphics—4x the performance of the previous generation Kindle Fire HD.

Custom Dolby Audio

Kindle Fire HDX uses the power of Dolby Digital Plus to create a world class audio experience. Dolby Digital Plus includes technology that adjusts volume, creates virtual surround sound, and delivers an outstanding audio experience. Kindle Fire HDX is designed to automatically optimize the audio profile based on what you're doing (with or without headphones), such as watching video, listening to music, or talking on Skype.

Uncompromised Battery Life

With advanced power management technology, Kindle Fire HDX delivers an uncompromised 12 hours of reading, surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music. When you're just reading, Kindle Fire HDX automatically powers down unused system components, extending battery life to 18 hours.

Rear-Facing Camera

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" features an 8MP rear-facing camera that allows for high-resolution photos and 1080p HD video. The rear camera includes an LED flash, Electronic Image Stabilization to remove hand jitters, a wide-aperture lens, and support for panorama and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging. Our updated camera app also includes photo editing features and a new camera mode with filmstrip.

Camera-Ready Case

The Origami cover for the 8.9" Fire HDX features a custom slide feature that quickly exposes the rear-facing camera and automatically launches the camera application so you don't miss a great photo opportunity. Learn more

Front-Facing Camera

Both the 7" and 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX tablets have a front-facing 720p HD camera, perfect for Skype HD video calls and taking photos to share via Facebook or e-mail.

Edit & Share Photos

Our beautifully designed photo app makes it easy to view your albums or watch personal videos. And sharing your photos couldn't be easier—simply tap on individual images to e-mail them to anyone you like. Editing on your Kindle Fire is simple—just select a photo to begin editing.

All-New Fire OS "Mojito"

New Kindle Fire tablets are powered by the latest version of Fire OS—Fire OS 3.0 "Mojito", which starts with Android and adds cloud services, a content-forward user interface, built-in media libraries, productivity apps, and low-level platform enhancements to integrate Amazon's digital content and improve performance for Kindle Fire tablets. See key features

Easier Content Management

New 1-Tap Archive frees up space on your Kindle Fire by identifying items that have not been used recently and provides a 1-tap option to quickly move them to your cloud for later retrieval. Optimized Download ensures the performance of the app you are using isn't impacted by background download activity.

Faster Access to Apps and Info

Fire OS 3.0 includes an enhanced, content-first home screen that allows users to easily switch between viewing their recent content and apps in Carousel View or favourites in Grid View. The new Quick Switch feature uses a side swipe gesture to easily move between multiple apps or individual content items without navigating home.

By Doug GARNETT TOP 100 REVIEWER
Digital Storage Capacity:64|Verified Purchase
Okay, I'll admit it right from the start...I am madly in love with my new Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" tablet.

The display resolution on the Kindle Fire HDX is absolutely fantastic. This tablet was amazingly easy to set up, connect to the wireless Wi-Fi modem, and start to use right away. In fact, the HDX performs much better than the latest iPad Air from Apple...and at a considerably lower price tag too. This tablet provides terrific value for the money.

But I must say that I have been very disappointed to find that so much of the Amazon software content (apps, music and video) that are available for the Fire HDX and other Kindle products in the USA are not available to Amazon customers located in Canada.

As an Amazon PRIME customer, I was very unhappy to discover that just because I live in Canada I am not entitled to have direct access to the PRIME Video Library, the special book offers, the lending library/book club privileges and the Kindle Fire User's Forum that are offered to Amazon's customers in the USA. Why are all these extra services stopped at the Canada/US border and not made available to Canadian customers on the same basis as in the US market?

It just doesn't seem fair to me that Canadian customers cannot have access to the same range of Kindle content, apps, accessories, services and promotional offers that are enjoyed by Kindle buyers in the USA (and now available in the UK as well). This is particularly discriminatory to Canadian customers in view of the somewhat higher price that HDX buyers pay in Canada compared to the US prices.

In my opinion, this inequality needs to be addressed and fixed immediately if Amazon hopes to sell more of their Kindle readers and Kindle Fire tablets in the Canadian marketplace.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why buy a tablet that is...... Dec 31 2013
By Caanda45 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Digital Storage Capacity:32
Why buy a tablet that is severely limited in Canada. I love Amazon and how it retails...but when over half the apps that Amazon has do not work in Canada I can`t support a product like this. Give me Amazon Prime in Canada that has the ability to use Amazon`s streaming capabilities such as Instant Video then I can support this product. Then it becomes 5 star from a 1 star.

Hey Amazon wake up and make the Canadian market on par with the US!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great hardware... but useless to Canadians Dec 16 2013
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Digital Storage Capacity:16
Bought this used on eBay, great hardware but as others have commented on previously, it is mostly useless for Canadian customers as half of Amazon's services aren't available on it. Too bad as the tablet itself is a winner, and would most likely trump the iPad on every front if only there was a way to use Google services without rooting (and Amazon isn't making this easy, as expected). I do wish Amazon would hear its customers' complaints and react to them but I have lost faith that we will ever see services parity between the Us and Canada. Looks like I'll trade this in for the newest Kobo tablet which is getting great reviews.

I got a new kindle fire HDXL 8.9". Even though the gadget is fantastic and pretty well done, it doesn't work with all the features that amazon.com has in its video. Amazon.ca is completely different and I don't like. it is like to have a beatiful car and can't drive it.

PLEASE AMAZON. CANADIAN CUSTOMERS SHOULD BE PART OF THE AMERICAN CUSTOMERS, OTHERWISE Is worth nothing whatsoever

1.0 out of 5 stars Value vs Services etc Jan. 24 2014
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Digital Storage Capacity:32
I was fully prepared to purchase this unit but changed my mind when the reduced services, features and content provided to Canada was pointed out. Firstly, how can Amazon deny these and still represent themselves as a value vendor in Canada? Secondly, how do they justify charging more for so much less? Guess I'll buy the HP or Windows tablet.

1. You can not use youtube(As of 2014 05 12. You still can not use youtube and there is no way you can get around)
2. You can not use google maps
3. You can not use google store!
4. There is no root method currently available
This tablet is not worth buying for the money. you can add some money and go for apple product which have much better user experience. Amazon is selling something that is just half finished(the hardware). If you want to buy a piece of plastic and use it as a mirror you can definitely spend your money on it.
There is no software in amazon store at all. The worst piece of Kindle I ever had.
I owned kindle paper white, kindle HD 8.9 32g and this kindle HDX 8.9 16g.
This is the worst piece of hardware I had very seen.
If you look carefully, the high resolution screen actually have small build in dots and slashes(for touch screen use I think). You can actually see them while you play. I think these dots and slashed must be bigger than the pix dot of the screen. Then what's the point of having such high resolution screen?

The only reason I did not return it is I scratched my the back plastic and the paint went off the plastic so I can not return.
