The Kindle Fire line runs a heavily customized version of Android software, however, custom ROMs can be used to make it more of a pure Android tablet.

This device is the successor to the original Kindle Fire tablet and sports an 8.9-inch screen with 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution and 254 PPI. The Kindle Fire HD is also be capable of in-plane switch and Amazon promises that it is 40 percent faster than the original thanks to its 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4470 processor.

The 7-inch version is slightly less powerful with a display that has a 1280 x 800 resolution and a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. It also features an efficient MIMO antenna and Dolby Digital, which brings a dual speaker system as opposed to the singular speaker found on the iPad. The Kindle Fire HD battery lasts longer and the tablet starts with 1GB RAM.
