I LOVE Amazon's Kindle Fire! I also love writing about this fabulous tablet and sharing with you all the fun things you can do with it.
(That's why I created this website, if you couldn't tell.)
So check out all these articles and resources to help familiarize yourself with the Kindle Fire.
First, if you don't already know, learn what a Kindle Fire is! Got it? Good! Next...
With fifteen** different tablets it can be confusing to know which is which!
Here's a list of all of Amazon's Kindle Fire tablets with their storage
size and the year each tablet was released:
(Year links are pages on this site about those tablets; tablet links are Amazon's product pages.)
Be sure to read through all the details on these pages to learn more about these fabulous tablets, including their unbeatable prices!
*These tablets (the ones with the asterisk above) are no longer for sale as new Kindle Fires on Amazon. However, you can still buy used or refurbished ones at a discounted price if you're so inclined.
**To simplify things I don't count the 4G versions of these tablets. The Kids edition isn't included in the total count either since it's basically the HD 6" or 7" but with only 8GB memory.
UPDATE: Amazon has a new labeling system for each generation of their Kindle Fires. I've updated the above to reflect this. All tablets in 2011 are first generation, 2012 releases are 2nd generation, 2013 are third generation, 2014 are fourth generation, 2015 are fifth generation, and 2016 are sixth generation.
The ones marked with a little heart ♥ are the Kindle Fire tablets I personally own, crazy huh? However, my toddler uses my first generation, my husband uses the HD 8.9", and I use a mix of the rest, but I do use all of them for testing and trying things out... that's the main reason I have so many- so I can help all of you and keep these pages as updated as possible.
If you have a Kindle Fire but aren't sure which one you have then you're in luck! I have an article just for you: Which Kindle Fire Do I Have?
