Kindle Fire HD 4G LTE (8.9-inch) | Amazon
Just a day after confirming that consumers would be unable to opt-out of the Kindle Fire HD's integrated lockscreen ads, Amazon has reverted its decision.
Amazon announced a number of updates to its Kindle line-up today, but some of the most compelling additions were software elements of the Kindle Fire operating system itself.
To go along with the just-announced Kindle Fire HD with 4G LTE connectivity, Amazon announced a new data plan — for $49.99 a year, users will get 250MB per month of data, plus 20GB of cloud storage and a $10 Amazon app store credit.
Amazon is adding audiobooks with Whispersync for Voice to its Kindle Fire tablets, letting readers keep a single bookmark across text and audio versions of the same book. The company is also enabling Immersion Reading, which allows you to follow along in print while the narrator reads the audiobook.
