SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The newly released Amazon Kindle Fire tablets – Fire HDX 8.9, Fire HD 6, Fire HD 7 and Fire HD Kids Edition - display an array of attractive features, including faster processors, the Fire OS 4 operating system, sturdy frames and improved battery life. But one of their most powerful new features is the ability – thanks to the built-in SlimPort® interface – to connect and display content on any size screen with HD theater-quality resolution and high-quality digital audio.
With access to an enormous amount of video and audio through Amazon Prime, as well as popular Android apps to stay connected, ultra-fast web browser and free cloud storage for all Amazon content including photos, the exciting line of new Fire tablets with SlimPort TV-out are the ideal TV companion in the living room for everyone to enjoy on the big screen.
The Kids Edition tablet allows for access to Amazon’s child-friendly section of books, games, educational apps, movies, and TV shows. SlimPort® makes sharing all this content with friends on a bigger screen a breeze, through simple plug-and-play connectivity, for the ultimate play date experience.
The high-end Kindle Fire HDX 8.9-inch boasts a snappy 2.5 GHz Snapdragon processor and comes with perks like Dolby Atmos surround sound, a Fire Keyboard, and the WPS Office app. Connecting the Fire HDX to a larger monitor display through SlimPort display-out makes the ideal computer setting to create and edit documents from the tablet, which translates into better overall performance for daily productivity tasks.
“We’re pleased that Amazon selected SlimPort for the new line of Kindle Fire tablets,” said Andre Bouwer, vice president of marketing for Analogix. “With SlimPort you can enjoy Amazon Instant Video and Amazon Twitch game streaming on the big screen for a theater-like experience.”
