Online retailing giant Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is among the best tablets available in the market right now and now there is one more reason for many of us to go and grab it.

Amazon that was the first to pose tough challenge before Apple’s iPad tablets by launching its very cheap Kindle Fire tablet has announced to give $50 discount to Amazon Student member who have prime account.

I am sure for many Amazon Kindle Fire HD fans, this will be a great news in very beginning of the new year and many will opt to use the opportunity to get hold of this very impressive tablet.

Reports suggest that users with Amazon student prime account will get $50 discount off of the Kindle Fire HD WiFi model and they will get it for just $249 instead of regular price of $299 and the LTE version for just $449 instead of its regular price of $499.

Amazon’s tablet comes with best specs. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 has exceptionally beautiful 1920×1200 display. At 254 ppi, it is not comparable with Nexus 10 but consider to be very close to iPad and much superior than Samsung Electronic Co.’s Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Overall the resolution is high enough for human eyes to distinguish individual pixels. The Kindle Fire HD is not as cheap as it seems to be, considering its low price. At 9.45 x 6.50 x .35 inches (HWD) and 1.29 pounds, it’s smaller and slightly lighter than the Nexus 10, the iPad, and other 10-inch tablets. Its screen is a bit smaller which could be the obvious reason of low price. At the end of the day, its unparalleled viewing experience, no matter what you want to watch. The 8.9-inch model uses an OMAP 4470 processor, Dolby audio and dual-driver stereo speakers, it has two Wi-Fi antennas, work simultaneously, on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands which utilize MIMO (Multiple In/Multiple Out) to improve reception, increase capacity and reliability. Thus, fewer dropped connections, more than 40% faster media streaming. The Kindle Fire HD also adds Bluetooth connectivity allowing users to connect an array of wireless accessories including keyboards. I am sure that many people would love to use the opportunity and get a new tablet for them
