Yesterday Amazon introduced its new tablet in society. Besides presenting a revamped version of its 7-inch Kindle Fire, Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, introduced a new tablet clearly aimed at trying to unseat the iPad's throne, the Kindle Fire HD.

The Kindle Fire HD will be available in two sizes, 7 and 8.9 inches. What sets this new Kindle Fire HD is that incorporates a screen with a 1920 × 1200 resolution with 254 ppi. It exceeds that of the new iPad, but pretty close. Among the other features we OMAP 4470 processor from Texas Instruments which, Amazon says, is 50% faster than the nVidia Tegra 3. As for the sound, the Kindle Fire HD features two speakers using Dolby Digital Plus.

On the software accompanying the Kindle Fire HD, highlight the new feature called X-Ray for movies, which is that if you are watching a movie and want to know, for example, who is the actor comes out, just clicking with the finger on his face IMDB application opens with the information. Another interesting feature called Whispersync, with which you can listen to Kindle books while you read.

Finally, one of the great strengths of the Amazon Kindle Fire, its price. The Kindle Fire 7 Inch HD it will have available from 14 September and will be priced at $ 199, whereas if you want the 8.9-inch model will have to wait until 20 November to pay $ 299. Both are 16GB versions. If you want the 32GB version with 4G LTE will have to pay € 499.

As you can see, in the absence of meeting him in person, it seems that Amazon is stepping up and did a good job. Clearly pummeling want both iPad now as the possible iPad mini. But really this Kindle Fire HD can compete on an equal footing with the iPad? Let's see some technical differences between the different models of tablet we have or will have in the market.

  • Display: The new iPad has a 9.7-inch Retina display with resolution 2048 × 1536. The possible mini iPad will have a screen of 7.85 inch IPS 1024 × 768 resolution. The Kindle Fire of 2011 has a 7-inch screen with 1024 × 600. The Kindle Fire 2012 model know that will keep the 7 inch but do not know its resolution. The Kindle Fire may buy HD 7 inch IPS display and 1280 × 800 resolution, or with 8.9 inch IPS display and 1920 × 1200 resolution. Finally, the Google Nexus 7 has a 7-inch IPS display and 1280 × 800 resolution.
  • Processor: The new iPad has Apple A5X processor dual core 1 GHz processor rumored iPad mini believe may be an A5 dual core 1 GHz 2011 The Kindle Fire has an ARM Cortex A9 dual core 1 GHz The Kindle Fire 2012 processor will not know that. The Kindle Fire 7 Inch HD carry a TI4470 OMAP dual-core ARM Cortex A9 1.2 GHz to 8.9-inch version of the same processor but mounted to 1.5 GHz and the Google Nexus 7 rides a Cortex A9 quad core at 1.3 GHz
  • RAM: The new iPad has 1 GB of RAM. The predictable iPad mini will think 512 MB. The Kindle Fire 2011 has 1 GB. The Kindle Fire of 2012 will know that 2 GB, and the two versions of its big brother, the Kindle Fire HD. And the Nexus 7 has 1 GB.
  • Storage: The new iPad know it is available in 16, 32 and 64 GB, as we think we have the iPad mini. The Kindle Fire of 2011 can only be purchased in 8 GB, as will happen with the Kindle Fire of 2012. The Kindle Fire 7 Inch HD can buy it in 8, 16 and 32 GB, while the 8.9-inch version of the 16 GB will start, with both 32 and 64 GB. Meanwhile, the Nexus 7 we can acquire with 8 or 16 GB.
  • Weight: Something important on a tablet is its weight. The new iPad weighs 653 grams. The iPad mini obviously do not know what I weigh. The Kindle Fire 2011 weighs 413 grams, while the 2012 model data has not been provided. Nor do we know the weight of the Kindle Fire 7-inch HD, but if the 8.9-inch model, which remains at 566 grams. Finally, the Nexus 7 has a weight of 340 grams.
  • Price: And let the end one of the most important factors. The new iPad has a starting price of $ 499. The rumored iPad mini could go with a price of $ 299. The Kindle Fire costs $ 199, 2011, while the 2012 model has dropped slightly and will cost $ 159. The Kindle Fire HD, as we have said, will have a price that will build on the $ 199 for the 7-inch version and $ 299 for the 8.9-inch version. The Google Nexus 7 and we all know that is priced at $ 199.

Broadly speaking, these are the most important differences. Note that compared models alone have mobile connection is the new iPad and the highest version of the Kindle Fire 8.9 inch HD. At the moment we do not know whether or not iPad mini version will have 3G or 4G LTE. And finally, also note that the only rear camera also incorporates the iPad. The Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7 only feature front camera for video calling.

Well, that said, do you think that the Kindle Fire may overshadow HD to Apple iPad? My personal opinion is that, technically, they have many options to succeed, but I do not know how to eclipse the Apple tablet.
