Amazon announced their new Kindle Fire HD range of tablets earlier, where we reported on the 7- and 8.9-inch variants. There was a higher-end model unveiled also, which finds itself known as the Kindle Fire HD with 4G LTE.

4G LTE connectivity is something new for Amazon, and they've partnered up with US telco, AT&T using their 4G LTE network. It's the same as the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 model, but with the joy of having 4G LTE connectivity, and a $499 price tag. This means you're coughing up $200 more for 4G.

 

But, for $50 per year, you'll get 250MB per month from AT&T, which is definitely not a kick in the pants by any means. The Kindle Fire HD with 4G LTE is available for pre-order today, and ships on November 20 with its siblings.
