One of the most talked about positive specs of the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD is its 1080p high definition display. Its resolution is only a touch lower than the resolution of the 9.7” iPad’s retina display. The iPad boasts a resolution of 264 pixels per inch (ppi) while the Kindle Fire HD 8.9” version has an HD resolution of 254 ppi.

In contrast, the 7 inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD does come with a high definition display. Further, the iPad mini does not have a 16:9 display ratio that is needed for properly viewing HD movies. Therefore, whenever an HD movie is viewed, in addition to poor resolution, the viewer also loses display area because the screen becomes letterboxed.
