As you are aware, Amazon finally launched their own answer to Apple’s iPad in the form of Kindle Fire which is far less than an iPad competitor in my own humble opinion. For instance, there is no camera, no microphone and no 3G support in the Kindle Fire. You can access the internet only through WiFi and be able to read e-books, listen to music, watch movies and play games available for download through the Amazon Appstore for Android. But still, for the pure tech moguls, here’s a side by side specs comparison of Amazon’s Kindle Fire, Apple’s iPad 2 and Barnes & Noble’s Nook Color:
The biggest plus side of the Fire is that the device will come with a 60-day free trial of Amazon Prime (a $79 a year value) membership and pre-registered with your Amazon account, so you can literally use it right out of the box. But still, it is far too less to entice anyone to opt for the Fire, again, in my own humble opinion.
You can get more of the Fire at Amazon’s new Fire page and over at amazon.com/kindlefire.
