The 4G LTE version of Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9 will arrive at select AT&T stores all across the nation starting on April 5th. The carrier will be the first carrier to sell the Kindle Fire HD tablet at its retail locations, and with an optional two-year contract. This comes at a perfect time because earlier in March, Amazon had slashed the price of its Kindle Fire HD 8.9 tablets, reducing the 4G version by up to $100.
AT&T will hold only the 32GB version of the tablet. Off contract, you can pick up a Kindle Fire HD 8.9 from AT&T for $399, the same price as it is on Amazon. However, if you sign a new two-year contract with AT&T, you can get $150 off the tablet, and purchase it only for $249. The latter would be an amazing deal considering most of us stick to our tablets for years.
The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 boasts some decent specs. The device has an 8.9-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display with a pixel density of 254ppi. It has a 1.5GHz OMAP4470 processor, 1GB of RAM, a front-facing camera, custom Dolby audio and dual stereo speakers, and up to 10 hours of battery life. You will also have access to Amazon’s huge selection of entertainment, as well as Amazon’s exclusive features, such as X-Ray for movies/textbooks, Whispersync for voice/games, and immersion reading.
If you’re already an existing AT&T customer, you can pair up the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 with AT&T’s Mobile Share plans starting at only $10 a month. That way you can share the data on your plan throughout multiple devices. If you don’t have an existing AT&T plan, you can sign up for one for as low as $15 a month. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is a great tablet for regular consumers, and it has an easy-to-use interface. You can check out our review for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 to see if it’s the right tablet or you.
