From Reputable Tech Sites
- $199 is an amazingly low price for what Kindle Fire offers.
- Kindle Fire is capable of most things that tablets are expected to do:
browse the web, send email, stream videos, run apps (twitter, facebook, etc.), play games, and, of course, load books, and even borrow ebooks from the library.
- Kindle Fire lacks some premium features (camera, microphone, 3G access), so buyers be aware.
- The tablet looks beautiful, interface is very slick, doesn’t look cheap.
- Kindle Fire matches the competition as far as processors go (1GHz Dual Core TI).
- The tablet’s storage capacity is lower than that of the competition, only 8GB, but Amazon is providing unlimited cloud storage, so it should be no problem.
- Kindle Fire is a 7 inch tablet – smaller than traditional 10 inch tablets like iPad 2, so those who like bigger screens, be aware.
- Kindle Fire is lighter than the bigger tablets (0.9 pounds vs 1.33 for iPad 2).
- Kindle Fire runs a brand new browser, Amazon Silk, which utilizes cloud technology (and should run faster than traditional browsers), but without testing it reviewers are not sure how good it will be.
- A lot of people who don’t own a tablet now, will buy the Kindle Fire.
- Kindle Fire is meant for a different market segment than iPad 2, but will take some business away from Apple.
- The Amazon tablet will not be the iPad killer because iPad 2 is still superior in terms of function, and there are plenty of tech lovers and Apple fans who want only the best.
- Amazon will happily sell you their digital products whether you are using Kindle Fire or iPad 2.
- Other (than Apple) tablet manufacturers will suffer greatly.
