Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch Tablet Review
A notable size upgrade over the first Kindle Fire HD, the 8.9 inch version falls a bit short.
In the Box
Surprisingly enough, the only thing you'll find in your black cardboard box aside from your tablet is a USB cable, and a tiny card telling you how to unlock the screen. Beyond that, just more packaging.
Due to its comparatively light weight, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch is fairly easy to hold for long periods of time. While it's more natural to use it in a landscape orientation, if you find it easier to hold in a portrait alignment the screen rotates to adjust. Without any sharp angles, the bezel to the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch doesn't dig into your hand after a long period of use, so most users should find holding the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch to be fairly comfortable.
