Hands-on with Kindle Fire HDX, Amazon's next-generation 7 and 9-inch tablets

Andy Ihnatko | Sept. 26, 2013
The new Fire tablets include 'X-Ray' features for second-screen TV viewing and a 'Mayday' button for real-time video tech support.

The last new product Amazon announced on Tuesday is something we've seen before but it's well worthy of mention: A 7-inch Kindle Fire with last year's hardware specs is now just $139.

I appreciate the nod toward the budget-minded consumer. One kind of elegance and innovation involves adding new power and features while maintaining the old price point.

Another kind involves delivering great performance to a group of users who had previously been shut out of the latest tech revolution due to economic circumstances. I'm glad to see both types represented in today's news.
