As you know, I like to be up on new gadgets and whatnot. When I first heard about the Kindle Fire, I didn’t know if it was a good purchase or not, since I was equating it with the Amazon Kindle reader. After a little bit of research and talking to friends who had one, I figured it would be a good buy. I was looking for a birthday gift for my better half and since he didn’t have a tablet and is always traveling, thought this would be a fab gift.
The Amazon Kindle Fire tablet is a 7 inch tablet with color graphics. It’s a lot smaller than my Xoom (the Xoom is 10.5 inch), and very lightweight. Almost too light! It works as most tablets do—you can surf the web, download music, books, check mail, etc. It doesn’t have a camera for pictures of video—but still, for surfing and playing games on the go, it’s a great tablet.
For someone who isn’t ready for an iPad, Xoom, or Samsung Galaxy tablet, then this is the next best thing. Only $199.00.
Here are a few photos of the unboxing of the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet. I will be bringing you more information as it relates to the usability of the tablet, speed, and wifi connection.

Alright now…..I need to follow this and see what the final report is. I have a Kindle also and not ready, nor do I really want to upgrade to an iPad at the present, but the Kindle Fire sure is tempting. 🙂

We fired it up tonight and added a few apps. Wifi works flawlessly. App download process is easy and fast as well. So far, so good.

Very nice sum up of the Kindle Fire. Definitly a lot cheaper than other tablets currently on the market and the sales figures don’t lie that it is worth the money. For a more technical review go here: http://www.thekindlefire.org
