Amazon 'Kindle Fire': The $199 iPad Killer?

kindle-fire-20110930

It seems everyone and their mother is coming out with a tablet.

HP, Sony, BlackBerry, Toshiba. ... But, nobody can seem to top the Apple iPad.

Well, it looks like that’s all about to change. On Wednesday, Amazon.com officially revealed its tablet computer, Kindle Fire, and (holy crap!), it’s got:

  • 7-inch touchscreen
  • Amazon’s library of downloadable books, magazines, movies, music and apps.
  • Free access to Amazon Cloud for unlimited storage
  • High speed Internet via Amazon’s Silk network

And the kicker? It’s only $199. OK, we’re interested.

And, at the very least, it’ll hopefully push the price of the iPad down.

 


Wait! Doesn't the Kindle Fire look a lot like our HTC EVO 4G View (as featured in our road trip video [screenshot])?
