Kindle Fire Review

The Kindle Fire is Amazon’s best selling wireless device, helping the Kindle brand transition from e-readers into the tablet market. However, the Kindle Fire has a huge advantage over the iPad and other tablets currently available – it’s price. At $139, the Kindle Fire is less than half the cost of a new iPad.

With it’s inexpensive price tag, you might expect a major lack of features on the Fire, however, your expectations would be incorrect. The only thing the Fire has missing, compared to the iPad, is a camera. But with the majority of people now having cameras built into their cell phones, you have to ask yourself if it’s really necessary to have another one on your tablet / e-reader. In this reviewer’s opinion, it is not.

UPDATE: Kindle Fire has been replaced with the Kindle Fire HD.

Features

  7″ Color Touchscreen

The Kindle Fire has an amazing 7″ color display (the first for any Kindle) with 1024 x 600 (high definition) resolution. And because the screen is constructed from Gorilla Glass (which is 30 times stronger than plastic), you don’t have to worry about the screen getting scratched or cracking from typical wear and tear or the accidental drop. Like all Kindle’s, the Fire also has an anti-glare feature so that you can use it outside or in direct light.

  Ease Of Use

One of the greatest features of the Kindle Fire is its ease of use. It’s a high-tech device for low-tech people that are just looking for a simple, uncomplicated, easy to use, tablet that they can use to read their favorite book or magazine, surf the internet, play games, and watch a TV show or movie on. If you can see and touch, you can use the Kindle Fire to do all the above without that 13 year old kid next door having to explain it to you. The Kindle Fire is also small enough that it can easily fit in your purse or backpack and you can use it one-handed.

  Books, Games, Movies, And More!

With a selection of over 20 million books, games, songs, TV shows, and movies, the Kindle Fire will exceed your entertainment needs on all fronts. Fair warning though, once you start using it, it’s hard to put it down.

  WiFi Ready + Cloud Storage

With built-in WiFi, you can access any of the 100,000+ WiFi spots throughout the U.S. to browse the web, watch a movie, or download new books to your Fire. And with this number expected to quadruple by 2015, there will always be a WiFi network nearby. If you’ve ever lost all your files on your home computer, you can rest at ease because your Fire has FREE cloud storage on the Amazon network. This means that if your Fire ever bites the dust, you are still able to access every file you’ve downloaded (don’t you wish your home computer had this built in?).

  8 Hour Battery Life

Although battery life on the Fire lasts less than the other Kindle models, it’s still on par with most laptop computers or other tablets.

  8GB Memory

Offering top-of-the-class memory in the Kindle family, the Fire is able to hold up to 6,000 books, 800 songs, or 10 full-length movies on it’s 8GB internal memory.

  Less Than $140

With a price tag of $139, it is the least expensive, full-featured, tablet currently on the market. Truly a bargain when you consider everything it can do. If you’re interested in buying the Kindle Fire or would like to find out more information, Click Here.
