Helping with graphic calculations, this tablet also counts with a 384 megahertz PowerVR SGX544 GPU. An amazing feature of this tablet is its 64 GB large internal memory and while it doesn’t come with an external SD slot, it it is more than enough to store lots of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without even thinking about running out of space.

This tablet includes a very good 8.9 inches display with a 1200 x 1920 resolution, which makes all photos and videos look very good. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 only features a 1.3 megapixels front camera.

The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 doesn’t have a sim card, because it doesn’t support GSM networks.
