Amazon's Kindle Fire Released.


Woah - I was waiting for this.

The Omnivore - BusinessWeek

Kindle e-readers—they start at $79

Kindle Fire - With a 7-inch display, the Fire is about half the size of the iPad. Price $199.

Re: Amazon's Kindle Fire Released.

Kindle Fire isn't really worth it, nothing over a standard 7" android tablet, but the Kindle Touch is very good, narrows the gap b/w Nook Touch and Kindle Touch.

Re: Amazon's Kindle Fire Released.

I don't get how its not worth it?

Even @Rohan says so.

Whats not worth it?

It has a 7" IPS Display, 1Ghz OMAP4, 512MB RAM and a good UI, for just 200$.. It's better than any other Android 2.3 tablet out there. (Don't compare to Honeycomb)

Re: Amazon's Kindle Fire Released.

Yes, it's definitely worth it but is it that good ? So much in just $199 ? Can't just say anything about it's quality or glitches till it's released in November.

Just noticed this.

The Kindle Touch is 6".. Smaller screen.
On the go movies and books?.. Tether. OR OR OR OR OR OR, you have 8GB to store your Books/Movies. It's not like you would stream a movie over a 3G connection anyway. Your 3-5GB usage quota would get over in 5-6 movies.
Camera?.. Oh right. Your phone sucks.

Re: Amazon's Kindle Fire Released.

I am just saying that if i want a tablet..i will not compromise..and if i want a reader i would like it to have E-Ink and 3g.

Fire as a tablet is a compromise ..just because of the price i miss out on some essential features.
Touch3g is perfect as an E - Reader

and @Ad1tya , you of all people should know what is a bad investment. and no my phone has a pretty good camera.. i have clicked some really nice clicks with it! i can adjust ISO sensitivity..hdr..and all

Re: Amazon's Kindle Fire Released.

^^ But can you Video Chat? ..

It's not supposed to be a full-fledged tablet. Hence the 200$ Price.

It supports eBooks, Apps, Music, Videos, Browser, Email, Magazines, etc. What else can you ask for in 200$??.. Hell it does most of the things the iPad 1 can do and that released at 500$

It's Android 2.3.. Can't be that glitchy now can it?

Re: Amazon's Kindle Fire Released.

Kindle Fire is actually a very good deal for someone who does not want a full tablet. I am considering getting one.

Is the screen quality better than ipads?I hate the ipads screen.
