The Kindle Fire

Kindle Fire Amazon Details Page

Set to come out on November 15, 2011, the Kindle Fire will revolutionize the Kindle as we have known it.  The Kindle Fire should not be thought of as an upgrade.  Before, the Kindle’s main purpose was simply an e-reader with a few worthwhile games. The Kindle Fire will be a totally different product that competes in the tablet industry.  In this article I will go over the specs of the Kindle Fire to give you an idea of what to expect in mid-November.   Seeing what this new Kindle has to offer, the $199 price tag is a great value for what you are getting – especially when compared to similar competing products.


The most noticeable upgrade in the Kindle Fire is the color touch-screen.  The Kindle Fire is equipped with a 7” screen, which is smaller than the previous Kindle DX’s screen, but given the functionality of a touch-screen is well worth it.  Plus, did I mention it is in color???   The screen size should not put anyone off since the Kindle Fire’s entire purpose is to be sleek and slim.  The entire device itself has dimensions of 7.5” x 4.7” x 0.45” and weighs only 14.6 ounces, so as you can see the majority of the Kindle Fire’s face is the color touch-screen.
Another great feature of owning a Kindle Fire is that once you buy one you will have instant access to a total of 18 million apps, songs, games, movies, books, TV shows, newspapers, audio books, documents, and of course, magazines.  All of that content can be accessed through a Wi-Fi network since the Kindle Fire comes Wi-Fi ready.  The Kindle Fire also uses a new browser from Amazon named “Amazon Silk”.   Amazon Silk is designed to use Amazon’s cloud computing technology to help your Kindle Fire balance the work load.  All of this is saved on an internal 8GB storage device.  As a Kindle Fire owner, you also have the option to store your Amazon specific content on Amazon’s Cloud thus giving you free storage space to go well beyond the 8GB.

This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this awesome product.  The Kindle Fire has more great features and things to offer and is definitely worth taking a look at.  It is never too late to put in your pre-order so you can be among the first to get the next great thing in technology.  Pre-orders are already going through the roof, so this product is sure to be a hit.  The Kindle Fire is the best choice when it comes to handheld computing and is sure to be a winner for some time to come.
