Hey guys, this is Austin and today I’m here
with an unboxing of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7”. With major competitors
like the Nexus 7 the Fire HD has a lot to live up to but is it good enough? Like
the last Fire it comes in a small cardboard box but with a quick pull of the
tab you’re in business. Pop open the lid and inside you’ll see the Fire HD
in it’s foam packaging, a MicroUSB cable for charging and syncing along with
a tiny getting started guide. What you won’t find is a wall charger although
it should work with any USB charger you have. Fire it up and you’ll see the
7” IPS display with a resolution of 1280×800. It’s now based on Android 4.0
Ice Cream Sandwich but Amazon has so thoroughly skinned it it’s not a stretch
to call it a new OS. Around back you’ll see it’s covered in a soft touch
rubber with a metal band which conceals the stereo speakers. On the right side you’ll
see your headphone jack along with the volume rockers and power button.
As you can probably tell, they’re nearly flush and blend in a little too well.
On the bottom you’ll see Micro HDMI out along with MicroUSB and around front
is your 1.3 megapixel front facing camera which is the only camera on
the Fire HD. Taking a quick look at it next to the Nexus
7 you’ll see they’re identical in screen size and all other dimensions except
for the Fire HD has a wider bezel. At first glance the Kindle Fire HD looks pretty
solid but definitely stay tuned to the channel as I’ll be doing a thorough
review and comparison with the Nexus 7 once I spend some more time with it.
