Fire At The Amazon In HD

The new ebook reader by Amazon boasts of a 40% faster performance, better battery life and double the storage capacity as compared to its predecessor. Equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, the basic model of the Kindle Fire comes with a 7 inch LCD multi-color display with 16million colors, an 8 GB of memory and WiFi connectivity.Facebook and Twitter integration has been provided along with email integration. You can also get unlimited cloud storage at Amazon. The kindle also allows users to borrow books from the 180,000 books available with no due dates.

The Kindle is also available in In HD models having 16 & 32GB storage. The American manufacturer hopes that it will be a breakthrough for the people who love reading, playing games and accessing applications but cannot afford expensive devices as the iPad. 

Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal said “the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD is not as polished, fluid or versatile as the iPad. After prolonged use, some apps and content took longer to launch and web pages loaded more slowly through the new Wi-Fi technology, compared to the iPad”, he added.

The kindle fire lacks a camera on the back, no GPS navigation, no speech recognition. Also advertisements at the start of the device or when resumed adds to the pain of users. Amazon has declared that users will be able to deactivate those for $15. It starts with a price tag of $199. The success of the Amazon kindle Fire would depend on apple releasing its rumored iPad Mini & the Google nexus 7 which is known for its amazing value for money quotient.
