Amazon Kindle Fire HD Support

The new release of Oxygen Forensic Suite 2012 enables forensic support for the new Kindle Fire HD, a fully-featured Android-powered tablet and an e-book reader sold by Amazon. The Oxygen team investigated the specifics of the new device, analyzed the new and unique apps, and determined types and locations of user data that can be stored by these apps. During the last month, Oxygen Software conducted a series of training sessions in the USA, the UK and Germany and received enthusiastic feedback from participating forensic experts. During the training sessions, Oxygen team demonstrated successful acquisition and parsing of data acquired from the new Kindle with Oxygen Forensic Suite 2012.

Being a fully featured Android device with wireless capabilities, the new Kindle is not just an e-reader. The new device can be used for everything Android tablets are used for, including online and mobile (in 4G-enabled versions) communications. It perfectly fits as a communication device, and is bound to keep a massive amount of user data. Kindle Fire HD users carry it around to surf the Web, make Skype calls, and communicate in Facebook, Twitter, and instant messengers. The information about these and other activities can be successfully extracted from Kindle Fire HD, as demonstrated by Oxygen Software. By supporting the latest Kindle, Oxygen Forensic Suite 2012 offers investigators the ability to analyze the specific data produced by apps pre-installed into the new e-reader.

About Amazon Kindle Fire HD

Every new Kindle brings Amazon thousands new customers and upgraders, but this time the device appears to be in a much higher demand than ever before. According to Cult of Android (c), more than 250,000 units have been preordered during the first week since Amazon put the new device on its Web site. If this level of demand continues, the company may have well over a million units pre-ordered even before the device goes officially on sale on November 15th.
