Connecting to Other Hardware
The Kindle Fire is a self-contained device. You can access your content directly from the Kindle Fire without connecting it to a computer or any other hardware. However, you might want to use accessories that will enhance the quality of your interaction with your Kindle Fire. You can pair the Kindle Fire with Bluetooth keyboards, headphones, or speakers. You can also use an HDMI cable to connect with a television or larger monitor so that you can view your movies on a larger screen.
Adding Bluetooth Accessories
Bluetooth keyboards and headsets can connect wirelessly to your device. With Bluetooth headphones, you can listen to your music without being attached to your Kindle Fire by a wire. A Bluetooth keyboard can help you type messages and documents faster. If you have Bluetooth speakers in your car, you can even play music from your Kindle Fire over your car stereo.
