Easy to use, very good display and an integrated shopping center: The Kindle fire HD from is a special tablet.
- Kindle fire HD test
- Data sheet
It’s a word: for its Kindle fire HD will have only $199. The aggressive pricing strategy aims but not to sell in the short term as many tablets. Rather, the online retailer wants long-term bind customers and about the offered content regularly profit – as the Apple for years with the “Everything from one hand” tactics successfully makes out.
However, nothing is first to use. A closed world means not only optimised and controlled content, but also easy to use, seamlessly integrated services and most uncompromising customer care. So many positives for customers.
You must however consciously engage in this restrictive approach and accept that holds the monopoly, and no other online shops with the Kindle available – for music and movies, nor for books or apps. So far, so clear.
Handling: Portable shopping centre
Consequently, the user interface of fire HD is highly optimized for the use of the offering. The most recently used books, applications, Web pages, songs or videos prominently in an elegant Coverflow view are placed on the home page so that you can quickly switch back and forth between the current and most recently used content.
Keep the tablet in portrait mode, similar content for download are offered at the bottom of the screen, according to the motto: customers who have purchased, viewed even for… – a very handy feature.
Directly via the CoverFlow-display are placed somewhat discreet ten menu items: shopping, games, apps, books, music, videos, Web, photos, documents and offers. These are the content that you can use with the tablet.
The order in which of the points already makes it clear: the Kindle fire HD is not a simple tablet, but a portable shopping centre. And its range can be seen: according to Amazon, more than 20 million movies, series, books, music and apps are available.
Also the fire HD from the start is linked, away with your customer account so that the payment processing works easily and at your fingertips. For access to the online shop, a Web connection via Wi-FI is necessary; a model with integrated mobile radio module has not in the program.
Operation: basically an Android
Operating structure and concept of the streamlined interface are understood within a few minutes, access to the shop and all content is very easy. With large images and some text, the surface is ideally adapted for the operation of the 7-inch format. Here, has done really good work.
Facilities: Limited app offer
That works in the background of Google’s mobile operating system Android, hardly noticeable, but is also not important. has consciously detoxifies the system and greatly reduced. So strong however, that Android hardly what’s left: neither the built-in Google services like maps, Gmail or Google + by default, yet the play store are installed on the Kindle.
There are apps only from Amazon’s own store, which – stand – in mid-November had here and there a few gaps. Although there are mainstream tools such as Facebook, Tune-In radio, documents to go or Angry Birds, if you are looking for but rather more specific things like dropbox, NAVIGON or Snapseed, you will be disappointed yet at the moment.
PDF reader, Web browser and E-Mail client are installed at the factory on the Kindle but, even Facebook and Twitter are integrated into the system; Address book and calendar complete the PIM functionality of fire HD.
Very clever: All content – whether it be books, documents, movies or music – coupled with your own ID and can move in the free Cloud, about to to save local stores or exploit the content to another device, for example, with a Smartphone.
The computing power of fire HD allows no two opinions: the Tablet is powerful and runs beautifully around. This is instruments 1.2 GHz pulses, allowing a very smooth, almost smooth operation mainly on the high-performance dual-core processor OMAP 4460 of Texas. Also the touch screen responds reliably, he transposes remains securely wipes and multi touch gestures. This is not of course for a 199 euro cheap tablet.
Housing and processing: Small design flaws
The housing design, are undermined however minor goof. For example, you are flush with the side edge of the housing blind hard to locate final buttons. You must look so exactly, to turn on the display, or to regulate the volume – that’s difficult in the dark.
And if you hold the tablet in landscape mode, you hide the two speakers integrated in the body with the palms of your hands. Otherwise, the form factor of the fire very pleasant and the processing is solid.
Also, the discreetly rubberized back gives him a quite high-quality appearance. The Tablet but only with two hands is comfortable to use – especially when it comes to tapping the touch screen. At the book reading or video check, also a one-hand operation is easily possible.
Laboratory measurements: Great display
The TFT LCD screen of the Kindle fire HD is a stunner. The colours shown are pretty strong and especially writings stung sharply drawn. 7 inch 800 x 1280 pixel a pixel density of very good 216 reached the screen ppi; individual image points are virtually impossible to see.
The contrast values measured in the laboratory are pointed. Also, the screen with up to 424 cd / m shines significantly brighter than most competitors sq. Outdoors, the fire HD is still the most readable for outdoor use but still not to be recommended.
Also are bookworms, which is primarily E-books to heart want to lead, better served with a classic reader with E-Ink display. The battery life proved to be good in the laboratory test with less than seven hours in the typical mix of uses.
Conclusion: Between Tablet and E-book reader
The Kindle fire HD is now an E-book reader or a Tablet? Quickly look up a term in the Web, checking email, listen to some music or just browse at the Bookstore: in the framework of its possibilities, the Kindle fire HD is really fun.
For a full-fledged tablet that expand freely with software and widgets can be, it is, however, too narrow. A pure reader; but it is also as with all its apps, the Web browser and the games it quickly distracts from reading.
Basically the concept is well thought out and works as promised. Who wants an easy to use tablet with seamless integration of shop for apps, books, multimedia and profound expansion and personalization possibilities can forgo, get the currently best price-performance ratio here.
