In November 2012, Amazon launches one of the hottest tablets running under Google’s Android operating system, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9, which gives a better competition to the 7.9-inch Apple iPad mini and it was a big hit during the holiday shopping season of the last year. Originally available for purchase, starting at $299 for 16GB Wi-Fi only edition, $369 for 32GB edition. Amazon sees high demand for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 and it has gotten a price slash on Amazon’s website,
