Kindle Fire HD (7-inch) now available

Consider this a friendly reminder that the new Amazon tablet, the Kindle Fire HD, is now available.  Priced at $199, the 7-inch tablet features a 1280×800 HD display, 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor, Dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi, Micro-HDMI, a front-facing camera, and at least 8GB storage.

While the specs are quite nice to be sure, it’s the software and the experience that sells the Kindle Fire HD.  Features like WhisperSync, X-Ray, and Kindle FreeTime provide a level of user satisfaction that you don’t get with standard tablets.  Of course, there’s also that direct access to Amazon Prime videos, a massive library of books, magazines, music, and more.  In other words, get your card out and order one, silly.
