still deciding which Kindle Fire HD to get :) (7" or 8.9") I am not too into the screen size, I don´t mind it being around 2 inches bigger, or smaller.

All the specs and comments in Kindle Fire HD really catch my attention, the only thing that is still keeps me undecided on which one to get is this "X-Ray":

X-Ray for Textbooks:
".....links to Wikipedia and YouTube content."

I really liked it, yet the x-ray add only mentions 8.9" HD.

Does anyone know if 7" can have X-Ray, or even Wikipedia and Youtube?
Please let us know tks.

It looks to me like the X-Ray feature is only available on the 8.9" or iPad. This connects your textbook content to Wikipedia and YouTube. Even without the X-Ray feature, Wikipedia and YouTube are still available in a browser or app on all Fires.

Not for textbooks it appears.

X-Ray for Textbooks - Available on Kindle Fire HD 8.9" and the Kindle app for iPad
(see the link posted by Emanuel)

Perhaps someone who owns the 7" HD models will chime in. I'm waiting on the release of my 8.9" model myself!
