Amazon Kindle Fire HDX

Remember those new Kindle Fire tablets we posted about a little while back?  You know, the super high res tablets running those sweet Snapdragon 800 processors?  Well you can now pre-order them in Canada!  Just in case you forgot, here are the specs:

Kindle Fire HDX

  • 7″ 1920×1200 Resolution IPS Display
  • Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 Processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB-64GB Internal Storage
  • HD Front Facing Camera
  • Dual-Band Wifi
  • 11-17 Hours Battery Life

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

  • 8.9″ 2560×1600 Resolution IPS Display
  • Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 Processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB-64GB Internal Storage
  • HD Front Facing Camera
  • 8MP Camera
  • Dual-Band Wifi
  • 12-18 Hours Battery Life

As expected, we do have to pay a tad more for these devices here in Canada.  For the 7″ model prices are up $25 compared to the US price which means that the 16GB costs $254, 32GB costs $294, and the 64GB costs $334.  The larger 8.9″ model ups the price by $20 so the 16GB will cost $399, the 32GB will cost $449, and the 64GB will cost $499.  Prices definitely get pretty high once you start looking at the top models but these tablets do pack some serious punch.  Unfortunately, no 4G/LTE models are available at this time and I’m not sure they ever will be.

If you’re not looking to spend quite as much on a tablet, the Kindle Fire HD will start at $149 for an 8GB model while a 16GB will set you back  $179.  This device isn’t nearly the beast the HDX tablets are but its still a solid all around device and it’s quite a bit more affordable.

In terms of availability, the Kindle Fire HD will be available later this month, October 24.  The HDX devices are a little over a month away as they are expected to be released on November 26.

So anybody interested?
