Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ With 4G LTE Headed to AT&T on April 5, Priced at $250 on Two Year Contract

Kindle Fire HD 8.9

AT&T announced this morning that they are to bring Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ tablet, complete with 4G LTE to their network starting April 5. Customers can pick up the device for $399, but can save up to $150 when signing a new two year agreement with the device. AT&T is the first carrier in the U.S. to offer the device at a subsidized price point. 

The 8.9″ Fire HD sports a crisp 1920 x 1200 display, 10 hours of battery life, access to all of Amazon’s digital content, and now sports 4G LTE. These devices were first available back in September of last year, so excuse me if I don’t sound overly excited for this announcement.

Show of hands, who is picking one up?

    for the price of $250 i think it’s not bad, i hope i could get more feedback about the unit – Donnalyn of Destin Fishing

  • I don’t see why people wouldn’t sign up for a contract with a new phone, sell the phone, take the cash and buy the tablet outright, and maaaayne buy something else with the remaining profit. Their $150 off is a joke.

  • I just threw up a little in my mouth…

  • this has to be a bad joke

    The Kindle Fire HD is a great tablet in either 7″ or 8.9″ sizes.

    However, I see no reason to sign up for a 2 year contract on AT&T. Why are Americans so enamored with contracts and subsidies for devices? Just save up the extra money to purchase the device outright, or finance the device on a credit card.
    You do not want to get tied into a contract for 2 years for any device, especially a tablet.

    I can’t see any reason on this earth to have a contract for a tablet. Assuming you’d already have a contract on a phone anyway, and probably a home connection also. Seems like way too much money for redundancy.

      Especially not if you have tethering.

    No one wants a tablet on a 2 year contract.

    Is this an April fools joke? Fail.

    Ass t&t sucks rotten eggs. So does the Kindle Fire.

      There you go again. And you had the audacity to call out my posts.

      Wow. What an intelligent response from a 50-or-so year old “man”. 4th graders could speak better.

    I can’t see any appeal at all to signing a contract on a friggin tablet. I think I’ll just tether it to my LTE phone instead if I need data that badly on the go.

    Not worth it. At all.
