Adding some minor updates to the tablet that started it all, the 4th generation iPad drops the classic 30-pin dock connector for a Lightning port and upgrades to an A6X processor that offers double the graphics performance of the A5X. The tablet remains the same beyond that, with the same form factor and display as the 3rd generation model.

Description

The Kindle Fire HD features an 8.9-inch 1920x1200, 254ppi display. It includes an HD front-facing camera, HDMI output, Bluetooth connectivity, and a laminated touch sensor for better visuals and 25-percent less glare. Under the hood, Amazon has dropped in a Texas Instruments OMAP 4470 processor.
