We each have our own needs, but this Kindle Fire HD 8.9", Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 16 GB meets mine perfectly. Checked the specs and it works for me.
Personally, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" with 16GB (vs 8GB on original Kindle Fire) is the right size, along with free unlimited cloud storage, but 32GB may be worth considering. The dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi sounds fine. The 8.9" high definition color display (with 10 point capacitive touch) and 1920x1200 resolution at 254 ppi sounds fine. Video playback up to 1080p, advanced polarizing filter, plus anti-glare technology and stereo Bluetooth meets my needs.
Measuring 9.4" x 6.4" x 0.35" at 20 ounces, this is an improvement over my present Kindle Fire, Full Color 7" Multi-touch Display, Wi-Fi, which measures 7.5" x 4.7" x 0.45" at 14.6 ounces. Looks like this new Kindle Fire HD 8.9" will replace my original Kindle Fire, which can then be used for photos, a few basic apps, and my library of PDF files for every bit of photo and computer gear that I own. As noted earlier, we all have out needs, and this new one meets mine perfectly.
Thank you Jeff Bezos and the Kindle Fire team... for me, this is a winner!
