Kindle releases NEW Kindle, the Kindle Fire HDX

I didn’t see this one coming! Amazon has released a new Kindle Fire HDX and it seems they’ve dropped the price of the Kindle Fire HD to $139.

What’s new with this version and how os the Kindle Fire HDX is different than the last Kindle Fire HD?

  • Vivid HDX display – Go beyond HD with exceptional pixel density (1920 x 1200 or 323 ppi), perfect color accuracy (100% sRGB), reduced glare and improved brightness

  1. My daughter saved for almost a year and bought herself a Kindle HD on August 28. When I saw the drastic price drop on the Kindle Fire HD today I called Kindle Support and they gave me a $30 Amazon account credit!
