In September, Amazon launched three new devices in the company's tablet line-up, the Kindle Fire HD 7, Kindle Fire HD 8.9, and the Kindle Paperwhite.

While the Kindle Fire HD models quickly went head-to-head with competitors, such as Google's Nexus 7 and Barnes & Noble's Nook, the Kindle Paperwhite found itself in a smaller nische of e-Ink readers.

We wanted to have a closer look at what differentiates these two tablets, which even though they are from the same company and carry the Kindle name, has their own very particular uses.

The Kindle Fire HD is meant for more than just reading books, and so has some very advanced technology built-in, such as large internal memory ranging from 16-64 GB depending on model, a display that can show High Definition (HD) resolutions, and fast dual-core processors.

It also features Dolby audio and dual-driver stereo speakers which produces great audio even without headphones. The Fire HD is meant to produce high quality entertainment whether you are watching the latest movies or simply reading your favorite novel.

The Kindle Paperwhite on the other hand is a reading-only device. It is made to last you an astonishing 8 weeks on a single battery charge, while the Kindle Fire HD would only last around 10 hours of average use.

The price difference between the three devices is great, so keep in mind what you really need when make your next Amazon Kindle purchase, and avoid being fooled by the products' look-a-like names.
