Introduction

See alsoThe very best tablets of 2013

I predict that Amazon's new Kindle Fire HDX tablets will be a big hit over the holidays, and could even push the mighty iPad aside. Not only are they cheap – starting at an insanely cheap $229 – but it also comes in 7-inch and 8.9-inch varieties.

But a great tablet can be made even better by augmenting it with accessories, and there are some awesome add-ons for Amazon's flagship tablet.

ArmorSuit MilitaryShield screen protectors

There's nothing worse than getting a scratch on your screen, but cheap screen protectors not only don't provide much protection but also degrade the viewing experience considerably.

ArmorSuit-MilitaryShield features exceptional clarity and UV protection to prevent yellowing. It is made from the same protective film material used to protect military aircrafts, helicopters and space shuttles. MilitaryShield is also equipped with "self-healing" properties to maximize the protection. It also peels off easy without leaving a residue.

ArmorSuit comes with a lifetime replacement warranty.

Different versions are available for the 7-inch and 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HDX tablets.

Price: $6.95 (7-inch) | $7.98 (8.9-inch).
