Exclamation Point Icon

Many of the tablets listed above are no longer for sale as new Kindle Fires on Amazon. However, you might be able to buy used or refurbished ones at a discounted price, if so inclined.

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, 2016 are sixth generation, etc.

Heart Icon

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 10", and I use a mix of the rest, but I do use all of them for testing and trying things out... so I can help all of you and keep these pages as updated as possible.
