Amazon is Expanding its Kindle Line

Amazon stepped further into the hardware foray with the introduction of six new and/or revamped devices. Among them is the Kindle Voyage, with Wi-Fi and free 3G, costs $269; Wi-Fi only versions costs $199. A gentle press on the bezel of the Voyager turns the page. An adaptive front light senses your environment and lightens and darkens the brightness automatically.

Amazon has revamped its basic Kindle e-reader to include a touchscreen, and is priced at $79. It comes with a touchscreen display that reads like real paper, totally devoid of glare. It’s lighter than a paperback, and depending on usage, its battery can last for weeks on a single charge (one of the benefits of using a black and white screen). They’ve topped it off with There’s a new $99 Fire tablet, the Fire HD6, that comes with a six-inch screen, is available in five different colors and comes with 8GB of available storage. Fire HD Kids Edition includes a full year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited that gives children access to thousands of books, movie, educational apps and games. The tablet boasts a quad-core processor, an HD display, front and rear-facing cameras and Dolby Digital Stereo. It costs $149. Amazon also upgraded the 7-inch and 8.9-inch Fire tablets.

Amazon says their new Fire HDX 8.9, which starts at $379, has improved with 70% faster graphics performance than its predecessor via a 2.5 Ghz Snapdragon 805 processor with an Adreno 420 GPU. WiFi has been ramped up as well. Speeds of up to 600Mps can be achieved through the 802.11ac and MIMO (Multiple Input, Multiple Output). The new HDX 8.9 can achieve speeds up to four times faster than the one before it. It also features Firefly, an app that identifies texts on various media like posters and magazines to instantly find information (including songs and TV episodes) or check a product’s availability on Amazon. All the new and refreshed models will be available in October.
