So I had been hearing stuff about Amazon making a tablet that was going to blow the tablet industry out of the water. I was just told about the Amazon Kindle Fire! From what I understand this IS the new tablet. But also one of the four new Kindles being released in the next couple months.
The 7" color touchscreen used in-plane switching which I guess makes it easier to share the screen with someone and still have both people be able to see the movie or whatever is playing.
From what I've read this thing can do just about everything. Play movies, tv shows, books, magazines, games, apps, music, streaming, email, and comic books to name a few. Comic Books! Yay! It also has a dual-core processor which should allow programs, games, and web browsing to run smoothly. Oh yeah, the web browsing. It uses Amazon Silk. From what I understand it splits the computing with the "Amazon Cloud". Which helps reduce load times, thus resulting is a much fast web browsing experience. And I'm sure no one will complain about that!
You can also access your Amazon Prime account and stream all the movies and shows you want! And you also have free cloud storage for all Amazon content. Which I assume means the likes of books, and music and movies. Or probably anything digital you get through Amazon!
The screen is made to be 20 times stiffer and thirty times harder than normal plastic. Thus making it more resilient to scratches and the like. I wonder what it would take to actually break one! The screen may be Superscreen, but it wouldn't hurt to have a Kindle Fire screen protector to add even more protection to this beast of a tablet. Though the screen is very resilient, you've added the extra screen protector, you might want to consider picking up a Kindle Fire case or Kindle Fire cover. Both come in handy for added protection while travelling or storage. Also, be sure to check out all the other Kindle Fire accessories!
With a launch price of only $199.00 it is definitely going to be a major contender in the tablet market!
