Engadget Review

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review (8.9-inch, 4G LTE)

Amazon's Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is slightly larger and slightly faster than the 7-inch version, but other than optional LTE it doesn't bring much more to the table.

Pros
  • Bright and beautiful 1080p display
  • Great build quality
  • Huge selection of content
  • Inexpensive base data plan
Cons
  • Occasional OS stutters
  • No access to Google Play
