Kindle Fire HD highlights Amazon's parade of tablets

Caitlin McGarry | Sept. 7, 2012
Amazon didn’t introduce a 10-inch tablet Thursday, as many tech pundits had predicted, but the company did roll out a potential iPad rival in the form of its $499 Kindle Fire HD.

The new Kindle Paperwhite has eight weeks of battery life with the light on. Consumers can access content using Amazons cloud service. In contrast, the Kindle Touch was introduced last year for $99 with a 3G model available for $149.

Amazon slashed the price for a slightly improved basic Kindle, which will be available Sept. 14, from $79 to $69.
