The Kindle Fire pre-orders are hot and holiday rumors are already flying. Last year, the Kindle 3G Black Friday deal sold out in seconds. There was a lot of hype around the product and many consumers were not happy that the Kindle sold out before they could even put it in their cyber cart. Let’s take a look at the new Kindle, heating up the tablet and e-reader world.
The Amazon Kindle Fire has raised the bar for tablets and e-readers with such a low price of $199. Besides the low price, what else are people so excited about?
- It’s a tablet meets ultimate e-reader for the perfect relationship with movies, TV shows, music, books, magazines, apps, games, web browsing and more.
- Pay $79 a year for Amazon Prime for over 2 million titles and 11,000 videos.
- From Amazon’s Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, “Kindle Fire has a radical new web browser called Amazon Silk. When you use Silk – without thinking about it or doing anything explicit – you’re calling on the raw computational horsepower of Amazon EC2 to accelerate your web browsing.”
