While at the Amazon media event this morning, we got to spend some hands-on time with the Kindle Fire HD 7, and have a look at some what has in store for us.

Amazon announced the Kindle Fire HD this morning, and it is the next generation of the retailers 7-inch tablet line. While the original Kindle Fire received some minor upgrades – along with a price drop to $159 – this new $199 tablet is where most consumers will be focusing their eyeballs this holiday season. With improved screen technology that cuts down on the glare, and allows you to watch videos up to 720p, this is going to be worlds above last year’s generation.

Take a look at the video above and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
