The 7″ Kindle Fire HD is pretty much identical to the 8.9″ HD, except for the size. It’s powered by the same dual core OMAP 4470, has the same dual Wi-Fi antennas, dual speakers, 16GB of storage, and HD front facing camera. With that size difference also comes a price difference: the Kindle Fire HD 7″ will be a clean $199. The screen resolution has not been stated, but stay tuned for more info as we get it!
The $199 Fire HD 7″ will compete with the Nexus 7, which is also $199, but sports only 8GB of memory. The rest of the features are mostly up to choice, as one runs on the Amazon ecosystem and software, and the other is all Google. Also, it competes with its own Kindle Fire 7″, which is priced at $159. However, the HD far outspecs the standard model, and is definitely worth that extra $40.
