Dear Customer,

Barely a year has passed since the launch of Kindle Fire in Italy and since then we have never stopped innovating at incredible speed to create a tablet even better.Today I’m excited to introduce the new Kindle Fire.

New tablets are super efficient devices: we have added the latest graphics engine, doubled memory and tripled the processing power using the most advanced 2.2 GHz Quad-Core processor. Our screens HDX combine outstanding resolution (up to 339 ppi) sRGB color, a perfect reproduction, better dynamic image brightness and contrast. All this adds up to 11 hours battery life, which become 17 when used to read-only.

Even our largest tablet, Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 ″, is incredibly light. We have rethought our design from scratch using a new shell made from a single piece magnesium alloy and nylon. Weighs only 374 grams, 34% less than the previous model.

New tablets Kindle Fire were created for work and leisure, and enriched with hundreds of novelty. They are simple to use and you can now access your favorite content through two display modes, grill or sequence. The new e-mail, the new integrated calendar and allow you to continue working OfficeSuite wherever you are.

As always, all Kindle Fire give you the wide selection of Amazon’s digital content at your fingertips. Find your favorite applications and games on Amazon appstore App, discover millions of songs in the MP3 Store or buy your next book from over 2 million eBooks available in the Kindle Store.

In addition to all of these improvements, we made another step to make our tablets are even more convenient. The new Kindle Fire HD combines high screen quality of the previous model to a faster processor — all from only 139 €.

We worked hard to contain a high level of performance, innovation and attention to the customer in these tablets. We hope that the new Kindle Fire you like.

Thank you for being our customer,

Jeff Bezos
Founder & CEO
