Today, Amazon introduced the Kindle Fire tablet.
I watched a few news reports and to summarize:
The Kindle Fire is fast using a dual processor, it can run Android Apps but you gotta get them from Amazon (not a bad thing).
One analyst says it is NOT an iPad killer since the Kindle Fire is a consumer of media not a producer of media / content like the iPad can be.
However, this same analyst says it can put a dent in Barnes & Noble’s Color Nook.
It works on WiFi only and costs a “reasonable” $199 U.S. Storage of your media is via the Amazon cloud and they say that is for free.
The Fire will be available in mid-November but they are taking pre-orders now. When you get it, it will be pre-configured with your Amazon account information…that is cool.
Here are two videos:
