Amazon is getting ready to release its Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ to AT&T retail stores on April 5, which will use the carrier’s 4G LTE network.
The 32GB tablet will be able to net the Kindle Fire HD ($399) for a limited time cost of $249 with a 2-year data plan agreement.
“We’re excited to work with AT&T to offer the 4G LTE version of Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ to AT&T customers across the country,” said Mike McKenna, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. “Customers tell us they love our large-screen Kindle Fire HD for browsing the web, writing emails, watching movies, reading magazines, and more – and with AT&T’s 4G LTE technology, everything is faster and more convenient.”
The Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ is the highest resolution Kindle Fire, with a 1920×1200 screen (254ppi), Dolby stereo speakers, a front-facing HD camera and a battery life that is said to net 10 hours.
The tablet will have access to over 23 million movies, and Amazon-exclusive features like X-Ray for Movies, X-Ray for Textbooks, Immersion Reading, Whispersync for Voice and Whispersync for Games.
Data plans on AT&T’s network start at $10/mo. for use with Mobile Share Plans, and $14.99 for standalone data plans.
