Amazon Kindle Fire HDX Repairs announced!

Hello friends –

With all the talk of Amazon’s new services lately – I just had to revisit some of our repairs that we offer and let you know that we have launched a few new services today.

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7″ Kindle Screen Repairs!

There is some confusion between the Kindle HD and the Kindle HDX. These are 2 totally different devices and we should talk about them! It’s not just one thing; there’s a lot going on here:

Displays

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX comes in two sizes: 7-inch and 8.9-inch, offering a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution display (323ppi) on the 7-inch and 2560 x 1600 (339ppi) on the 8.9-inch. At that resolution, the 8.9-inch HDX has the sharpest display around, while the new 7-inch HDX matches the Nexus 7 (2013) for pixels.

The Kindle Fire HD (2013) – that’s the new version – has a 7-inch 1280 x 800 (216ppi) display, whilst the Fire HD 8.9-inch has a 1920 x 1200 (254ppi) display. Naturally, the higher pixel density displays of the HDX will give you more detail, with the 8.9-inch HDX looking like the real star in the pack.

Power and battery

The Kindle Fire HDX models have a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, the same sort of thing as you’ll find in the LG G2 or Samsung Galaxy Note 3. That means oodles of power on offer on both the 7-inch and 8.9-inch models, both with 2GB of RAM.

The Kindle Fire HD models both at 7 and 8.9-inches settle for a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The HDX will be faster, but Amazon also reports that the Kindle Fire HDX will offer slightly longer battery life. Not bad considering the step-up in display and power. It’s aided by a new software feature designed for reading, which shuts down non-essential hardware to extend the battery to 17 hours if reading alone.

Cameras

The camera isn’t the most important part of a tablet in our opinion, but you still see a large number of people using them to take photos: the Kindle Fire range hasn’t had a rear camera until now. The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 has a rear 8-megapixel camera, as well as a front-facing camera.

Both the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 and the new Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch offer front-facing cameras, while the new 7-inch Kindle Fire HD (2013) has no camera at all.

Connectivity

Kindle is known for being well connected and the wide range of clever features, like Whispersync, that come with it. The new 7-inch Kindle Fire HD (2013) is the only model without the option for 4G. It also misses out on the dual-antenna Wi-Fi that the others offer. If connectivity is key, so you might want to avoid the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD and pick one of the others.

Software

The Kindle Fire HDX and 7-inch Kindle Fire HD (2013) debut with the latest Fire OS3 software. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 doesn’t have that update and there’s no word on if it will.

Fire OS3 brings a range of features to the Kindle Fire HD and HDX family, including a new Mayday button for instant customer service support, second screen features, better touch response, X-Ray for music, a new reading mode that powers down hardware that’s not needed to extend the battery life and much more.

Repair Price

This is where Mission Repair steps in. While the HDX is a little more expensive to repair than the Kindle Fire HD, it’s still simply more cost effective to repair than replace. Give us a call if you have any questions at 866-638-8402. Thanks!

Kindle Unlimited…good news!

Hello friends- I’ve found myself using my Kindle to read more and more lately.

I know, who reads any more, right? Well apparently reading is still a good way to spend quality time in life, and I happen to agree. In fact, Dandra is a librarian, so reading is not an option at the Arter house 😉

Today, Amazon officially released “Kindle Unlimited” which allows the customer to enjoy unlimited access to over 600,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks on any device for just $9.99 a month. There’s a 30-day free trial as well which is really nice! Don’t worry Dandra, I already signed us up.

Amazon is giving you the freedom to explore through reading with their new program. 600,000 titles. Tons of options. I’m in – I thought that I’d pass this along.

Have a good day, Ryan

Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ Glass & LCD Screen Repair Service!

Hello M:R Nation –

The Amazon Kindle has been a wild card of sorts in the tablet market. Originally released as an ebook reader, it has quickly evolved into a full out tablet. See the Kindle fire for example. This evolution has hit its next benchmark with the newest LAB126 designed Kindle Fire HD 8.9″. Who is LAB126? They are the the company that actually designs the Kindle for Amazon (I thought I would throw that fun little fact in there for ya).

Speaking of the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″, there are some interesting rumors going around the Mission Repair halls, that we might see some services on our website available coming soon. Well, let me just squash those rumors once and for all. Yes! We are now offering services for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″!

Starting this very, cold and snowy day, we are now offering the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ Glass & LCD Screen Repair Service and Amazon Kindle Fire HD Diagnosis Repair Service! The screen service actually includes both the glass and lcd screen. So if you find yourself with with both screens broken, you are in luck! There will be no extra charge for that. If you only have one or the other broken, you still have to have both screens unfortunately. You can thank the aforementioned Lab126 for that, they designed to be that way 🙂

This is a great fit for Mission Repair and we are very happy to be offering this service. It rounds out the already extensive Amazon repair service capabilities we have. So if you find yourself in need of a Kindle fire HD 8.9″ repair or one of the many others Mission Repair offers, shoot us an email at sales@missionrepair.com and we would be happy to help you out!

Cheers, Troy
