Kindle Fire: Amazon has announced that as of this day, Kindle Fire is the fastest selling Kindle to have been sold since its announcement.
Kindle Fire costs around $200 most tablet experts were surprised that Amazon priced Kindle much lower compared to other tablets when in fact, it is loaded with features but for consumers like us, it’s a good news from Amazon- that is, getting a really sweet deal on the Kindle Fire for less than $200. For a tablet that it is, here’s a full honest review on Kindle Fire.
Kindle Fire Review and Specs: Build
The 7-inch Kindle Fire feels exceptionally solid but still comfortable to hold. It is 0.45-inches thick and weighs 431 grams.
It is controlled via touchscreen and is somewhat minimalist because there is no camera and no GPS sensor on-board either.
Kindle Fire Review and Specs: Display
Kindle Fire has a 7 inch screen which, we can say, is still out on the optimum screen size for a tablet.
Having 1024×600 and 169ppi IPS display, the color is brilliant, crisp and also defined. Its touchscreen is also impressive as well as the typing experience.
Kindle Fire Review and Specs: Software
Kindle Fire runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread but its trace is hidden because of Amazon’s custom skin. When you are at the homescreen, it looks like a bookshelf featuring your most recently viewed content at the top shelf and beneath it is where you favorite applications are housed.
It also has apps installed like Angry Birds, Words With Friends, Fruit Ninja, IMDb, Netflix and Pandora but it doesn’t have Google’s native app like YouTube, Gmail, Google+, Maps, Navigation, Translate and the rest.
Kindle Fire Review and Specs: Performance
Kindle Fire has a memory of 512MB of RAM, a 1GHz dual-core processor, quite slow accelerometer, somewhat pixilated vide playbacks and an 8-hour battery life.
Kindle Fire Review and Specs: Verdict
Most will agree that given the price range and comparison from other ebook readers in the market today, Kindle Fire is indeed very ahead of the competition.
