Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX: power, with a helping hand
The HDX is actually two tablets: a 7-inch model and an 8.9-inch version, just like the Kindle Fire HD before it. Both are still relatively inconspicuously designed, with virtually no flair — they’re just black. Both models feel solid and well made when you’re holding them. The company has made a big deal about the reduction in size and weight, and there is some noticeable fat trimmed, particularly on the 8.9-inch model. As before Amazon is using a soft-touch material around the backs of the tablets, but it’s dotting the edges of that surface with angular, raised plastic edges that jut out at surprisingly funky angles.

    Cool. Wish they would bring Amazon Prime Instant video to other devices.

    Well, it’s got a new processor, so it’s a bit fast for switching apps and playing high end games. But it’s still locked...
