We hope you all enjoyed the winter holidays! The data elves have now returned from their families and have been hard at work bringing you the latest and greatest new mobile devices from around the globe. Perhaps you have received one of these devices as a gift this year or maybe you are taking your chances with the winter sales.

This week 127 new profiles have been added to the device detection database, among them is Amazon's newest third generation tablet device the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9". This latest incarnation of the Kindle Fire comes with a 8.9" screen, a large 2560x1600 resolution and yet still only weighs 374g, with Amazon claiming it's 34% lighter than the previous generation model.

Equipped with a Snapdragon 800 chipset which includes a 2.2GHz quad core CPU, 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU, this means this device is no slouch when it comes to video and gaming. The new HDX devices also come with Amazon's new feature the "Mayday" button, this offers free assistance from an Amazon expert 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, from within the device itself.

To top it all off the new Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" comes with an 8MP camera and additional front camera, runs on the Fire OS 3.0 codenamed "Mojito", comes pre-installed with a bunch of obligatory Amazon Apps and is available in three storage options, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB and two connectivity options, Wi-Fi with or without 4G.

This week also brings us the addition of the Asus MeMO Pad 10, a 10.1" tablet manufactured by Asus which sports a 1280x800 resolution on an IPS display.

The MeMO Pad 10 utilises a modest 1.6GHz quad core CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 2MP rear camera, front VGA camera and comes with bluetooth support.

The MeMO Pad 10 runs on the Android 4.2 operating system and as its hardware specifications would suggest is priced rather moderately.

Other devices added this week include the Magicon Q7, Polaroid Executive 10.1 and the Micromax X103, among many more.
