Kindle Fire is a brand new kindle concept from Amazon and it has just been released for pre-order. It will be available for shipping on November 15th, but who know if Amazon can produce enough to keep up with the demand! You see Amazon have prized the Kindle Fire at only $199 which is very aggressive compared to the Apple iPad 2 currently starting at $499. The reality is that there are a lot of people out there who can’t justify spending more than $500 for a gadget to their kids that they don’t really need. However $199 for a shiny gadget you don’t really need? Now you’re talking. Kindle Fire does not offer 3G Internet and there is no camera but since most people have smartphone already covering most needs this will probably not hold back people.
It is build to provide you information, entertainment, apps, games fast and effective just as other popular tablets on the market. The technology used is top (dual-core processor) notch which means Kindle Fire is a small but very powerful tablet that you can have with everywhere. It features a 7″ multi-touch display with 1024 x 600 pixel resolution at 169 ppi, 16 million colors and it only weight 14.6 ounces (413 grams). It has up to 8 hours of continuous reading or 7.5 hours of video playback, with wireless off (according to Amazon). With Amazons large online supply of media, books, audio, video, tv, apps etc. this product will have a disruptive impact in the tablet and be a serious competitor.

The new Kindle Fire is smaller than most tablets being released and therefore it is a device you can easily have with you where ever you go.
It comes with an email client, and it lets you browse the Web via Wi-Fi, with a promising, Flash-enabled browser. There’s no native word processor, however, nor any other productivity apps. Additional email apps are available in our Amazon Appstore for Android.
The Kindle Fire comes with a free month’s subscription to Amazon Prime, a service that members pay $79 per year that includes unlimited, instant streaming of over 10,000 movies and TV shows and free two-day shipping on millions of items. It’s not clear if Amazon will automatically charge customers the fee after the trial month.
One of the interesting aspect of the New Kindle Fire is its integration with Amazon’s Cloud Drive. It automatically backs up the tablet’s data and syncs it with other devices. You can even delete stuff and retrieve it later, or even pause a show on your Fire and have it start automatically from the same point on your laptop.
