  • Experience the beautiful visuals and intuitive usability of the all new, great-value Kindle Fire HD 7” Tablet.

    High definition screen


    For the first time, Amazon have included a high definition screen on their most accessible tablet, letting first-time and casual users experience gorgeous HD tablet computing.

    So whether you fancy immersing yourself in the latest films and games or simply want to keep up with your social network, you can enjoy your media at its bright, vivid best with the new Kindle Fire HD.

    Your music and media will sound fantastic too with Dolby Digital Plus, a fantastic technology that ensures dialogue is clear, music engrossing and sound effects true-to-life.

    Fire OS Mojito


    Based on Android, the all new Mojito operating system provides easy navigation through your favourite online and downloaded content.

    Simply swipe, tap and pinch your way around your apps, files and media using the multi-point touchscreen – it doesn't take long to learn and is already familiar if you use a smartphone.

    Faster performance


    You can rely on the smooth performance of the Fire HD thanks to a new dual-core processor that, when teamed with the intuitive new operating system,  runs 20% faster than the previous generation Kindle Fire.

    You needn't worry about the increase in performance affecting battery life as the Fire HD features an all-day battery life of up to 10 hours, meaning you can enjoy your favourite media anywhere throughout the day.

    A Kindle at heart


    Along with over 100,000 apps and an ever-expanding library of music and video, the Fire HD still gives you access to your books and magazines anywhere. With a catalogue of over 1.7 million books and magazines, you can enjoy access to your favourite author's back-catalogue, explore expansive genre lists or make the most of the HD screen and immerse yourself in vibrant high-quality magazines.

    X-Ray is a handy feature that provides additional information on history, location, characters and anything you may find interesting while reading while the Text-to-Speech feature can audibly present English-language books if available from the publisher.

    You can even buy or rent college and university text books, helping save money when you need it the most.

    Perfect for family fun


    The Fire HD is suitable for the whole family thanks to Kindle FreeTime. This gives parents the ability to limit the little one's access to content, apps and manage the amount of time they spend playing while leaving unlimited access to books and educational software.

    Each user gets their own personalised homescreen and library too, letting young tablet fans feel ownership over content while leaving your homescreen full of the apps and books you love.

    Portable workstation


    It's not just fun and games as the Kindle Fire is the ideal office companion. Compatible with email servers such as Outlook and Gmail through ActiveSync, you can stay current while away from your desk and even access Word, Excel and PowerPoint files on the move.

    Cloud content


    Every Kindle Fire features unlimited cloud storage for all your Amazon content. Non-Amazon content can still be stored, with 5 GB of storage included for free.

    You can access your purchased media from other devices too such as Smart TVs, games consoles and PCs; simply download the relevant Amazon app to get started.

    Convenient connections


    Getting online and into the vast digital content library is simple with integrated WiFi while the easy-to-access micro USB port provides easy charging and PC connectivity.

    Enjoy your favourite apps, media and social networking in glorious Full HD with the affordable Kindle Fire HD 7” Tablet.
