Today - Media Mogul, Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon launched the much talked about Kindle Fire!!! ...and may I say that from my point of view...the buzz didn't come close!!! THIS THING ROCKS!!!
Expected to give the iPad some competition (I know I will own a Kindle Fire before I would buy an iPad!!!) it seems the only thing this tablet doesn't do is centered around the camera - it doesn't have one. But I never understood the need for a camera...my phone has a great one! I will certainly trade a camera for Amazon's vast Media Resources...and Cloud Storage!
So - this is what it DOES have:
|Stunning Color Touchscreen|
Movies, magazines and children's books come alive on a 7" vibrant color touchscreen that delivers 16 million colors in high resolution. Kindle Fire uses IPS (in-plane switching) technology - similar technology to that used on the iPad - for an extra-wide viewing angle, perfect for sharing your screen with others.
|Magazines in Rich Color|
Enjoy your favorite magazines with glossy, full-color layouts, photographs and illustrations. Choose from hundreds of titles, such as Bon Appetit, Elle, and Oprah. Special editions of titles likeVanity Fair, Wired, and GQ come with built-in video, audio and other interactive features.
|100,000 Movies and TV Shows|
Over 100,000 movies and TV shows, including thousands of new releases and your favorite TV shows, are available to stream or download, purchase or rent - all just one tap away. Amazon Prime members enjoy unlimited, commercial-free streaming of over 10,000 popular movies and TV shows.
|Ultra-fast web browsing - Amazon Silk|
Amazon Silk is a revolutionary, cloud-accelerated browser that uses a "split browser" architecture to leverage the computing speed and power of the Amazon Web Services cloud. Supports Adobe® Flash® Player.
|Free Cloud Storage|
Forget about memory - Kindle Fire gives you free storage for all your Amazon digital content in the Amazon Cloud. Your books, movies, music and apps are available instantly to stream or download for free, at a touch of your finger.
|Millions of Books|
Read bestsellers, children's books, comic books, and cookbooks in vibrant color. The Kindle Store offers over 1 million books, including 800,000 titles at $9.99 or less. In addition, over 2 million free, out-of-copyright, pre-1923 books are also available such asPride and Prejudice.
