Did you skip the iPad mini and Nexus 10? Were you looking for something a little more content-focused with a form factor in between the standard sizes? Well folks, it your lucky day, because the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is here! The larger of the Kindle brothers is now shipping, delivering its 1,920 x 1,200 display into the hands of shoppers for $299 to start. If you're looking forward to the LTE version, that will be shipping next week on November 20th as previously announced. Of course, that model will set you back a significantly heftier $499, though, we'd say that's still a steal considering the comparably equipped iPad goes for $629. While you wait for our full review check out the PR after the break.
