What an exciting morning! I sat at my PC this morning waiting in anticipation to hear what would be unveiled at the Amazon press conference held at 10:00 am. The rumors were that there would be a new tablet device unveiled.
The rumors would be correct! And there was more!
The Kindle Fire is a 7″ tablet that incorporates all kinds of media via wi-fi connectivity. It uses IPS display technology (used by iPads), has 8 GB of interanl storage (Free unlimited Amazon content storage via Amazon Cloud), weights 14.6 ounces and 8 hours of continous reading or 7.5 hours play battery life. It’s basically a smaller iPad without the 3G possibility with a MUCH smaller price tag: $199. (An iPad starts at $499 with 16 GB of storage, which is double what the Fire offers, so it’s compariable if you require more internal storage).
Fire will release on November 15th and pre-orders are available as of today with a first come first served. Get in line now!
Kindle Wi-Fi (no 3G option)
The Kindle has been redesigned! Say goodbye to the keyboard and hello to a smaller, thinner version! This is truly a great deal! Only want an e-reader? The Kindle is just what you need in a perfect little package with a perfect little price: $79. (with Special Offers) (Without Special Offers you’d pay $109) . It’s so small it’ll fit in the back pocket of your jeans!
Kindle Touch Wi-fi & Touch 3G
Now do you want an e-reader with a bit of pizzazz? Love the feel of a touch screen tablet but don’t want to fork over the extra cash for one? Then the Touch is probably what you’d like. It has a pretty incredible touch screen (I’d suggest watching the video on Amazon). It has a very cool new feature called X-ray. It will automatically download extra information from Wikipedia and Shelfari about the book so you can access it whenever you want with a simple touch of the screen.
This new technology is amazing. And so is the price!
Kindle Touch Wi-fi: $99 with Special Offers or $139 without Special Offers! Under $100 for a very cool e-reader device.
Kindle Touch 3G: $149 with Special Offers or $189 without Special Offers.
I like the idea of the Fire but I’m wondeirng if it’s better than the iPad? I don’t own an iPad but I’d love to. I hate the cost of the iPad but it’s comparible because it has double the amount of internal storage as the Fire. I probably won’t buy this quite yet but it’s really cool to see technology advancing!
