The Kindle Fire HD is relatively new, but a number of excellent Kindle Fire HD cases are available to protect the Kindle Fire HD and the 8.9-inch model.
The Kindle Fire HD is a resilient tablet, but in the hands of children or users who take the tablet to work or outdoors, a Kindle Fire HD case can mean the difference between a broken tablet and one that survives to fall again.
There is no OtterBox Kindle Fire HD case or LifeProof case to deliver rugged protection while leaving the Fire HD open to use, but we can share one case that will protect the tablet under extreme conditions, it’s even waterproof.
For owners who plan to use the Kindle Fire HD to watch videos from Instant Video, there are several cases with built-in kickstands that prop the tablet up in landscape mode. These are also helpful for users who plan to chat with the front facing camera.
Due to the larger size, the Kindle Fire HD does not fit in Kindle Fire cases, so it’s important to pick a case designed to fit the new Kindle Fire.
The Fire HD is available in a 7-inch and a 8.9-inch size. Most of these Kindle Fire HD cases fit with the smaller device, but some are sized for both.
The Kindle Fire HD is available for $199, 40% cheaper than the iPad mini and with Bluetooth connectivity there are even Kindle Fire HD keyboards available to add to the productivity of the tablet without going over the iPad mini’s $329 price.
The HDMI connectivity on the Fire HD is an added feature over the Nexus 7, which is also available for $199 and the iPad mini which needs a $50 adapter to connect to an HDTV.
