Amazon’s new Kindle Fire is bound to create some great competition in the tablet world! This new tablet at the very least will be the best way to read as well as do your online shopping. You will also be able to download apps and games from the new Amazon app store along with being able stream thousands of movies instantly, right from the device. With all that said, what is going to make it great competition above all other features will be the Kindle Fire’s great price point of only $199.00. It’s going to be very exciting to see the new Kindle Tablet competes in the market place.
Kindle Fire will be the first Kindle to have a color screen along with a fast duel-core processor. I believe this will be the first tablet to give the iPad some real competition.
A few downsides to the Kindle Fire tablet is that it only comes with 8g of storage. That’s not a lot if your wanting to be able to store lots of movies, TV shows, and games on the device. The biggest challenge for Amazon’s Kindle Fire is going to be the size of the app store. When it comes to competing with the iPad, this is the one area where no one has been able to touch Apple. The resolution of the screen is only 1024 by 600 pixels. This is considered fairly weak compared to the iPad and some of the other Android tablets that are currently available on the market today.
My over all Kindle Fire Review is that it is going to be a strong tablet that many book lovers will purchase. Having access to some Android apps, movies, TV shows and the largest book store on the planet defiantly makes it an appealing item that many homes will enjoy and you can’t beat the excellent price point of $199.00!
