Seriously considering buying one of the 7" HDXs, but have the following questions:

If I purchase with AT&T 4G - is the sim chip already installed?

What productivity apps come with the device? I.e., QuickOffice?, Adobe Reader, etc

Thanks in advance

Not sure if it has a sim chip like a cell phone but it only works on the AT&T network for 4g (with a monthly data plan). The WiFi version doesn't require a monthly plan, but you will need to be near a wifi spot when accessing the internet.

You can read .pdf files - not sure if it is adobe reader or just native to the device.

All the other apps you can view in the Amazon App store - you would purchase (or get the free app) and put them on the device yourself.

You can't install Windows programs on an android device. You'll have to check to see if there are any apps that offer the same functions.

I purchased the HDX with Verizon but was able to switch the sim to AT&T and added it to the new Family Share plan for $10/month. They obviously are not "locked" to one service.

Actually, Amazon sells the Kindle HDX 7 as a WiFi only model or with WiFi plus 4G LTE from either AT&T or Verizon.
