Is "Kindle Fire HD" (2nd Edition) applicable to the latest "Fire HDX 8.9" tablets?

"Kindle Fire HD" (2nd Edition) was published 3 1/2 years ago (January 2013). Would this cover the latest tablet version I have just purchased from Amazon (the "Fire HDX 8.9")? There are "HD 7", "HD 8" and "HD 10" versions currently available, but I believe the "HDX" tablets are new. There are several books just published that specifically state they are intended for these "HDX" models.

  • Hi James,

    Here a bit from the Preface of the books talking about the models covered:
    -----
    This book covers every version of the Fire except the original, first generation
    model released in November 2011; coverage of that device and its flavor of the Fire operating
    system await in the first edition of this book. The new models that you’ll read about in
    the pages ahead include the 7-inch non-HD Fire, the 7-inch HD version, and the 8.9-inch big
    boys (one of which comes with 4G/LTE, for getting online when you don’t have WiFi). Unless
    specifically mentioned, the features in this book apply to all these new models.
    ------

    It doesn't mention HDX anywhere, though. So, it doesn't look like that one is covered.

    Best regards,
