LTE-Enabled Kindle Fire HD 8.9 hitting AT&T this Friday

If you’ve been looking for a Kindle Fire HD with a few more connectivity options, you’re in luck. This Friday, AT&T will be offering up Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9 with LTE in tow.

While contracts for tablets aren’t a favorite of ours, customers looking to nab the 32GB Kindle Fire HD 8.9 with a new two-year contract will receive a $150 discount, bringing the cost of the $399 tablet down to $249.

AT&T is the first carrier to offer the Kindle Fire HD  with LTE, which will bring the same great speeds you’ve seen on its LTE-enabled smartphones. The tablet supports AT&T’s HSPA+ network as well.

Outside of the new connectivity options, this is still the same Kindle Fire HD that’s caused quite a stir. The HD is a solid follow-up to Amazon’s first Kindle Fire offering, and adding LTE to the device breathes a bit of life into the tablet that was announced last September.
