The Amazon Kindle Fire is a gadget for media access and web browsing as Amazon states and allows the user to access a lot of applications but only from the proprietary Amazon App Store not from the Android Market or any other App vendor even if it runs on Android. This model was named Fire because Amazon intended to set fire to the competition as it can be named the most successful tablet if I make a quality / price ratio but unfortunately this won’t be available for countries where there is no Amazon store. The screen featured by this device comes with Gorilla Glass protection as well as the latest IPS technology ( for offering a very wide angle of visibility ) and runs at a native resolution of 1024 by 600 pixels.

That, combined with the fact that the diagonal for the tablet is similar to what a netbook features, a 10.1 – inches display, makes the tablet even more convenient. In terms of weight it has only 413 grams and even comes with Wi – Fi support so the manufacturer eliminated the need of wires and so; a simple cheap wireless router will provide you internet access at home and if you have a hotspot this gadget is perfect. Amazon Fire also comes equipped with a dual core processor that is sure to pack a punch even if it’s not the latest buzz in the segment. It also features stereo speakers, the opportunity to use 8 gigabytes of internal memory for storage, a 3.5 mm audio jack and a good battery lifetime.

The price tag for this new device is around $ 200 and that makes it very competitive on the market. I ca officially say that Amazon “set the competition on fire” with this new device that they launched.

The Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet can turn to be a very good quality investment because it's a gadget that offers acceptable performance and is cheap and efficient in the same time. The purpose of this tablet is mainly to make sales of books, magazines, movies, games and other virtual goods more popular and so Amazon uses this concept as the main guideline for all products. This is why the tablet Kindle Fire will be sold so cheap and the only thing I don’t understand is why Amazon can do that but other tablet manufacturers can’t. Offering simple yet efficient performance for less money and more customer satisfaction.
