Amazon announced multiple Kindle Fire’s today, including a 8.9-inch version packing 4G LTE. The e-commerce giant had already unveiled its 8.9-inch 16GB Kindle Fire HD, but then decided to do one better by revealing a 32GB Kindle Fire HD with 4G LTE. The 32GB model will carry the same specs as its 16GB brethren, which includes an OMAP 4470 processor from Texas Instruments, Wi-Fi networking with the addition of a dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz receiver, a 1920×1200 254ppi display, better speakers, a laminated touch sensor for better visuals with 25 percent less glare.

Bringing it further and beyond the specs, the company introduced a new Amazon package that offers a separate 4G LTE model available for $499. The company plans to give users a data plan that’ll cost $49.99 per year with a monthly data cap of 250MB, 20GB of cloud storage, and a $10 Appstore credit. This is typical stuff from a company who’s notorious for bundling packages to customers. I know, 250MB of data doesn’t seem like much, but it could be usual for sending off emails while on the go. That said, it’s met to be seen whether people will shell out 500 bucks for a Kindle Fire over an iPad.
