Last week, Amazon launched its new Kindle Fire HDX line. The device is available in both 7″ and 8.9″ sizes. The 7″ tablet features a 1080p resolution, and the 8.9″ tablet sports a 2560×1600 resolution at 339 ppi. Both variants feature an incredibly powerful quad-core 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, complete with four Krait 400 cores and an Adreno 330 GPU running at 450 MHz. The speedy processor is backed by 2 gigs of RAM and 16, 32, or 64 gigs of internal storage. The devices run Amazon’s proprietary “Fire OS 3.0,” which is overlaid atop a customized version of Android Jelly Bean.
Not too long ago, we created a forum for the international version of the Galaxy Note 3. Now, it’s time for the device’s carrier variants. Largely similar to the international device, the US carrier variants feature the same 5.7″ 1080p Super AMOLED display with S Pen functionality. They also share 3 gigs of RAM and 16, 32, and 64 gigs of storage. Differing from the international version, however, the LTE-enabled variants feature the quad-core 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor.
