LIVE KINDLE FIRE HD UNBOXING: Join us at 2 p.m. today

With the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD, Amazon is going toe-to-toe with the Google Nexus 7 that came out this summer. On paper, the new Amazon tablet sounds impressive and looks like a vast improvement over the original Kindle Fire, but does it hold up in person? Join us as we get our first look live.

Due to processing difficulties, we are unable to determine when these hangout videos will be available. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you’ll check back with us shortly.
