New high-end tablet duo, Kindle Fire HDX 8.9-incher and 7-incher both feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processors at 2.2 GHZ and whopping 2560 x 1600 display resolution with 339 ppi, protected with Gorilla Glass and 2 GB of RAM. More details at Mashable. New low-end, cheaper tab, Kindle Fire HD comes with a $139 price tag with usual specs.

All these tabs will feature Amazon’s Fire OS 3.0 dubbed “Mojito” which includes “enterprise-specific” features like built-in native VPN client, wireless printing, pre-installed productivity suite, secure hardware data encryption and a new “May Day” button that offers dedicated tech support service for HDX users and more, according to TechCrunch.
