Conclusion
If you're an active Amazon Prime member, you'd almost be doing yourself a disservice not to buy the Kindle Fire HDX 7. Its deep integration of Prime features like streaming video, video downloads, and the ability to borrow books makes the HDX feel like a required Prime member companion device.

If you're not a Prime member and have no plans to become one, then the alternative 7-inch tablet options like the Nexus 7 and iPad Mini become a bit more appealing.

How can I justify it when I just bought the on sale HD 8.9? I need some creative rationalizations please.

Sell the current one.

You need it to make you feel better since the doctors no longer give out lollipops.

The dog keeps hogging the current Fire to watch cute kitten videos.

All the cool kids are getting one for Christmas.

"Geez dear, I don't know how this got ordered. I didn't do it. Oh my, I bet they don't take returns."

I can't top Just Peachy's reasons, but I was in the same situation. I sold my recently-acquired Fire HD 8.9" here on Amazon and it will arrive in the new owner's hands tomorrow. Meanwhile, I have both the new HDX 7" and HDX 8.9" pre-ordered. The former will likely become my son's kindle and the latter mine, but if I'm completely satisfied with the 7" I will just cancel the second pre-order.

But this tie in with prime membership also applies to the current version so I guess the issue is whether its worth upgrading?
