Forums Added for the Kindle Fire HDX and US Carrier Variants of the Galaxy Note 3

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.

Do the new Kindle models catch your eye? How do you think they compare to the Nexus 7 (2013)? Will the Galaxy Note 3 be your next phablet? Let us know in the comments below. Also, don’t forget to head over to the newly created forums below to get in on the discussion:

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
