The Kindle Fire has managed to kindle much brouhaha against the Apple iPad Air. While we had been toying with the idea of buying the iPad Air over the ever-elusive Google Nexus 10, we got hands on Kindle Fire HDX. The X is very much in place despite barely noticing much difference in specs between the two at the outset.

The upgrade to HDX for HD will burn a 90-dollar hole into your wallets. We wonder if this indeed is worth the moolah.

Check out the glaring wow-specs that the Kindle HX features over the Kindle HD. The newest kid on the block boasts: 

  • Enhanced display
  • Buffed up battery life
  • A rear shutter
  • Video chat spec
  • Pumped up processor
  • Stylish and sleek

The Kindle Fire HD has reigned the budget tab category for some time now. We guess it needs to give way to the HDX.

There are similarities between the two Kindle kids yes, but are restricted to the following

  • Parental control
  • 7-incher display size
  • Dolby audio
  • Wi-Fi
  • Free access to video, eBook and HD stream downloads1186069_245710068886958_860671331_n

All said and done, the Kindle HDX seals its place on the storage front. The models are available in 16, 32 and 64 GB variants against the erstwhile 8 and 16GB HD tabs.
