The Kindle Fire HD comes with 16 or 32GB storage, to better accommodate the large file sizes of HD content such as movies. The tablet's beefed-up processor is the dual-core 1.2GHz OMAP 4460.
The UK won't, however, be getting the 8.9-inch version of the Kindle Fire HD, also pushed out on Thursday, which remains US-only for now. An Amazon spokeswoman was unable to tell ZDNet if this version of the tablet will be released in the UK.
