The Kindle Fire HD 6 has been designed as a powerful and reliable device that boasts a wide range of features to keep up with today's ever-growing market.

The ultra-lightweight Kindle runs on a powerful quad-core processor with 8GB of storage and a 6" HD (1280x800) touch display for stunning visuals. Perfect for browsing, watching, playing and reading, the Kindle Fire HD 6 gives you instant access to the Amazon Appstore with a great selection of Android-based apps and games. The collection is designed to offer top-rated apps like Facebook, Netflix, and Evernote, as well as your favourite games like Minecraft in HD. Your choice of entertainment is then enhanced with the tablet's high quality mono speaker that uses Dolby Digital Plus technology to adjust volume, create virtual surround sound, and deliver clearer dialogue in films and TV programmes.

With Wi-Fi connectivity, the Kindle Fire offers ultra-fast web browsing and email, as well as integrated support for applications like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and more. It also comes with free unlimited cloud storage for all your Amazon-purchased content, so you don't have to worry about losing your favourite media ever again.

Great for families, the Kindle Fire HD 6 adopts the use of profiles; this enables each user to keep their personalised settings like email and social accounts, game levels and more. Amazon Freetime allows you to set screen time limits and create profiles specifically for children that limit access to the apps and games that they can use.

The Kindle Fire HD 6 offers a range of exclusive features brought to you by Amazon. Second Screen allows you to send video and audio to the big-screen using the "Fling" icon. This will then free up your Fire HD for other tasks. The tablet also features an Advanced Streaming and Prediction feature that monitors your viewing habits and pre-buffers selected programmes and films that a viewer is likely to watch next.

Other features include a front-facing VGA camera for free Skype-to-Skype calls plus a HDMI port for viewing your content on your TV or other devices. The Kindle Fire HD 6 has an extra long battery life, which provides up to 8 hours of use on a single charge.

It's not the size that counts.

In what sense - it's part of the Kindle family, so intended as an e-book reader. Having played with one briefly, it's perfectly sized for that. And it's at a size that the convergence of tablets and phones kicks in.

It isn't a Kindle though is it?

Is this a new kindle? Thought kindle did a 7" and a 10.1" for the normal tabs and an 8.9" for the HDX?

Yes and no - Amazon have kind of renamed the tablets. Most have dropped the Kindle from the name, and are just known as Fire tablets (as in Fire phone and Fire TV), but as they were part of the Kindle stable originally, you can think of it as a Kindle tab.

Combine with the current promo of £10 off using tablet code TDX-FKJT to reduce the price to £69. Works for all customers. Possible £64 with code TDXR-WRTP (account specific)

Much cheaper then a Kindle paperwhite. Ironic as it's much more high tech.

If anyone has reservations about the limited Amazon app ecosystem, I've found it trivial to sideload Android apps. So far the few i've tried have worked fine.

This looks great for a highly advanced e reader but a little small for streaming video etc. Just my personal opinion but I will gladly give it heat as the price for such a great piece of tech is pretty damn good

agree, I stream on a Playbook (7") to watch under the covers and it's just about ok, lovely image and sound but small ...great when attached to TV via hdmi though.

Are these actually good for reading on? I like the idea of a paperwhite kindle but this is £30 cheaper and can obviously be used as a tablet which is good. I wont read much just here and there, is it better for me to get this?

I can't believe someone thinks 6" is too small for a tablet when they have smart phones and mobile phones with smaller screens,as for this being a book reader,not is is not,its a tablet with book reader capability, just like an I pad is capable of operating kindle.
You will not be able to read this fire hd6 in direct sunlight ,but you can indoors as it has a backlight, also you can listen to music you have purchased,and view Amazon instant, and Netflix,and you can use you tube,browse the internet,in fact most of the things a complex innovative state of the art smart phone can,however the app store is Amazon app store which isn't as vast as apple app store,or Google apps,nor will it have GPS like a sat nav, but has cameras, which are basic,however it is still great,and has potential and is a nice Xmas gift in my opinion, not for me as I think 7" tablets are a minimum as I haven't great eye sight,OK with my glasses on though.
I do have a kindle fire HD 7" and it is good,but not perfect and I love my I pad, despite it having limited potential as a media device as it has inadequate storage,not having a SD slot,,nor can you use a USB stick,not without attachments,but a nice camera and good os, and I love my lenovo s6000f because it has a SD slot is quite stable,however the camera is awful.
What I am trying to say is that there is no such thing as the perfect tablet,and the fire6" is very good and I wouldn't complain if I got is as a present.
But it isn't a kindle bookreader it is tablet,not like a kindle bookreader,for example, paper white,it is a tablet, if you want a book reader buy a Amazon kindle book reader which you can read in direct sunlight,but if you want tablet buy this, if you don't want to spend too much.

So how easy is it to get rid of all the crappy Amazon gubbins and turn it into a proper Android tablet?

Interesting review on this device. I think I will give it a miss.

That's what I want to know as well as I lost my kindle on holiday and want to replace it - this looks like a good option but I want it for reading primarily so wonder if anyone has any experience or recommendations. Thanks all

I bough one of the new touchscreen kindle book readers to take on holiday,worked fine and it only cost £59,experimental browser has limited potential though,only problem was getting a cheap case.

Good upgrade for iPad owners

Anyone know when the Amazon TV Fire Stick is available in the UK?

You can't I'm afraid.

It's a nice little tablet - I use mine mostly for playing games, but it's also a good size for readng, and I like the option to change the background colour to sepia, which I find easier on the eyes than white.

jcodonne

It's not the size that counts.

oh it is size is everything if you know what i mean

Great size actually, really nice for reading, just seems better than 7" for holding in the hand. Nicely paperback-sized. However, sadly otherwise this is a chunky and relatively weighty piece of kit, and I found the one I had frequently slow, despite the quad-core CPU. In all likelihood that's down to the Fire OS but, other than the unusual size, it has little going for it over a regular Android tablet, unless you just have to have a Fire OS device.

amazon should have just made this into a phone for a few quid more, they would have sold plenty

I wouldn't agree its intended as an ebook reader. I would recommend you get a standard kindle ebook, if you are going to read a lot, you wont regret it,

I've no intention of buying one - I already have a 7" tablet, and a proper kindle. Just wishing I'd paid the extra for a Paperwhite

No, if you want to read for hours on end, this will be very tiring on your eyes - it's the fact that it's backlit.
The Kindle ereaders don't have a backlight (some do have a frontlight, which is different but easy on the eyes) and are made to be used for hours at a time without eye strain.
I've got a Kindle paperwhite that's a great reader for the price and do all my book reading on that. Also got a 7" Lenovo tablet that I do tabletty things on but couldn't bear to read on it for very long.
So to my mind (and the mind of quite a few people), ereaders and tablets are two different markets with two distinct uses. It's normally either the people who don't read much or people selling tablets that say otherwise

mmmmmmm tabletty things

i hace an hdx which is spiffing. i had the old one too.. and paid 139 for the 16 biter...... its a good deal this one. ignore the kindle haters!!!

So what's the battery life on this for reading / playing music or watching netflix ?

Have you tried Google Play Music or Google Maps?

There is an annoying glitch on these where the memory thinks its full even though next to nothing nothing is downloaded, requiring a factory reset. Apps to clear the junk and manually removing files via a laptop don't work . Bought one for each of my kids and the problem regularly occurs on both. I got two Nexus instead and personally think they're much better for a little more money

I have not. Though this suggests it is possible. Wouldn't mind getting Google Music going, as I do have a subscription. I wonder if the web player would work...
