Amazon today has announced the latest in their Kindle line of tablets, the Kindle Fire HDX 7" and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" tablets. The 7" features a 1920x1280 display at 323ppi, Quad Core 2.2Ghz processor, dedicated video chip, and 2GB of RAM and will start at $229 when it goes on sale Oct. 18, 2013. The 8.9" version upgrades the display to 2560x1600 at 339ppi and will start at $379 when it ships Nov. 7, 2013. Both are available in 4G versions for $100 premium, and this time are available both on AT&T and Verizon.
Amazon is also adding a new feature to the HDX line, something they are calling the "Mayday Button". Pressing this button will connect you to a live video chat with support personell and gives them the ability to see your Kindle's screen and even draw on it like a telestrator to show you exactly where to touch. Not a new concept in support, but definately new to the tablet world.
In all this new offering looks amazing, and as always I'll be recieving a unit on launch day to review. Stay tuned, this should be good.
