Amazon Fire HD 6 And 7 Tag Team Review: The King And Queen Of Low-Cost Tablets

When Amazon entered the tablet game with the original Kindle Fire, we all kind of chuckled at the idea of it being a reasonable entry into the market. With each iteration, though, those silly Fire tablets have gotten more and more powerful, and each edition of Fire OS has brought new features that proved to actually be useful. While Fire Phone may have been a flop, the Fire tablets are still very much alive, and the newest editions are better than ever.

Amazon Rolls Out Fire OS 3.1 OTA For Kindle Fire Tablets, Introduces Goodreads Integration, Wireless Printing, And More

Amazon is now distributing an OTA update for the Fire OS that powers the Kindle Fire HD and HDX tablets. Version 3.1 brings deeper Goodreads integration, so users can more easily share favorite quotes with others, view what their friends are reading, and leave reviews. Readers can also import their Amazon library directly into the social network. This may not be the most exciting new feature, but it makes perfect sense for a tablet that is descendent from a line of e-readers.

If you're looking for a good throw-in-your-bag tablet with an excellent form factor and beautiful display, it's hard to beat Amazon's 8.9-inch Kindle Fire.

[Deal Alert] Kindle Fire HD (7") Is $40 Off For All Models: Starts At $159, Matches Non-HD Price
