You can't use your photos for the lock screen or background.

Fay, horsham Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Its easy to use. Quick to access what you need. If you had a kindle book it automatically loads your books on to the other kindle. Over all very happy with my kindle.
Bad points:
Even though i fully charged it at the beginning and then let it run completely flat, I've found that it takes forever to get a full charge. It will charged to 90% very quickly, but the last 10% takes ages. The battery doesn't seem to last for as long as i tend to need. So need to take the charger with me.

Manufacturer's Description

Featuring one of the most advanced 7” screens around, the 16 GB Amazon Kindle Fire 7" HD Tablet is a stunning tablet that will more than cater for all your entertainment needs on the go.

Stunning visuals

On the 1280 × 800 pixel HD display you’ll really get the most out of your photos, videos and movies. The Kindle Fire HD is fitted with a polarising filter within the LCD itself and anti-glare technology to maintain rich colours and deep contrast no matter what your viewing angle.

Even with overhead light present, it’s super-easy and comfortable to view the screen on the new Kindle.

The touchscreen technology makes it a breeze to glide between files and settings, making for a truly relaxing portable entertainment experience.

Sound on sound

Augmenting the stunning visuals on the Kindle HD is lush custom Dolby audio and dual-driver stereo speakers that provide totally immersive, virtual sound for an all-round entertainment experience characterised by rich, deep bass.

You can effortlessly control the volume, create virtual surround sound and clearly hear film and TV dialogue – in fact, the sound is optimised to give the best results according to what you’re doing, be it watching films, listening to tunes or talking on Skype. Even plugging headphones into the Kindle Fire gives a unique audio response so that you’re ensured of top sound – sit back and relax!

Why walk when you can WiFi?

Boasting truly impressive WiFi, you can enjoy super-speed web browsing and email on your Kindle Fire HD, which also gives you integrated support for Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and other applications. There’s also a Microsoft exchange calendar, contact book and email facilities.

The state-of-the-art dual antenna is a world first for tablets and augments the dual-band WiFi to give you speeds up to 40% faster than the original Kindle Fire. With Multiple In/Multiple out technology also incorporated, the Kindle Fire Tablet is totally HD ready and has increased capacity and reliability when receiving transmissions. The tablet can automatically switch between 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi frequencies to give you better range and lower interference.

Palpable processing power

With its high-performance 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor powering an Imagination powerVR 3D graphics core, you’re assured of fast and fluid performance whether you’re streaming entertainment or surfing the web. With 1 GB of RAM for rapid reactions, the 16 GB Kindle Fire HD runs off an Android operating system, enhanced by cloud-accelerated browsing using Amazon Silk.

Entertainment daily

As well as all this incredible functionality and processing power, the new Amazon Kindle gives you access to over 22 million movies, TV shows, songs, books and magazines, in addition to tens of thousands of popular apps and games. Enjoy such japes as Cut the Rope HD, Angry Birds Space HD, Skyscanner, Jamie’s 20-minute Meals and Auto Trader, among many other digital delicacies.

Contact…

Thanks to the great front-facing onboard HD camera, you can keep in touch with your mates and loved ones via free Skype-to-Skype video calls, wherever you may be.

Slim Jim

The new Kindle is so easy to hold in one hand with its thin, light and portable design. The sleekly rounded corners and slick black finish give it a real air of panache, making it easily the most stylish and physically manageable Kindle yet.

Mobile Broadband – Online on the Go.

A tablet is a truly mobile device. It is designed so you can get the information you need, for work and pleasure, whenever you want it and wherever you are. But only if you are connected!

Mobile Broadband is the best way to get online on the go. If you choose a Wifi Tablet you are relying on being within reach of a Wifi hot spot such as an Internet Cafe. This can be expensive, both for the Internet access and the coffee! A Mobile Wifi gives you a hot spot in your pocket; it picks either a 3G or 4G signal wherever you are, at speeds that will amaze.

Each mobile Wifi lets you connect up to 5 devices at the same time – great if you are in a group. Also perfect if you are using it at home, as the whole family can connect at the same time.
