The brand new Kindle Fire HD 7′ and the 2nd generation Kindle Fire that were announced at the Amazon Press Conference in Los Angeles, California, are now available for purchase. Amazon had initially only opened up pre-orders for the two devices with a a launch date of September 14th. We are now on September 14th, and Amazon seems to have turned on the switch with those silly pre-orders now just becoming a nuisance. Of course, they will probably be come useful again when these guys go out of stock later today. Remember the lack of Nexus 7 units? Yeah, we could see a similar tend here. Of course, you may just want to wait for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ or Paperwhite, which you can pre-order at the links provided below.
Until then, the Kindle Fire HD 7″ is a really nice choice to hold you over until the 8.9″ variant releases, that is if you are willing to spend a few extra dollars. I think based on what Amazon is offering for the two devices, it might just be worth it, especially if you’re sharing your Kindle Fire tablet(s) with family. Amazon does seem to be aiming towards families with this tablet with some specific features to help out in that area, so that may convince you to purchase the tablet. Of course, many are saying “just get a Nexus 7,” I would definitely agree with that, but from the press conference in Los Angeles, I think that the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ is just as worth it.
With the 7″ HD variant sitting at $199, new Wi-Fi Tech, Whispersync and a new screen is really hard to say no to.
