A Review of the Amazon Kindle Fire

Amazon has taken on computer giant Apple through the introduction of the Kindle Fire. Only at half the price of competitor iPad tablets, the Fire comes with almost similar features.

The Amazon Kindle Fire sports a 7-inch display which falls a couple of inches short of the iPad's display but depending on how much viewing space you need you should find it functional. The Fire uses a state of the art dual-core processor the TI OMAP 4 as compared to Apple's A5 dual-core processor. The speed of these two processor's check in at 1Ghz, so nothing is lost in a comparison of processor speeds. The Fire features 8GB of storage and does not offer the option of increasing memory where the iPad does. However, Amazon offers free online storage through the Amazon Cloud, for all your digital content accessed via Amazon. Read more great facts on  Kindle vs Kindle Paperwhite, click here.

The Amazon Silk is an innovative cloud-accelerated browser that splits the work of webpage loading between two interfaces thus making loading webpages a breeze as well as conserving the life of the battery.

Amazon has done a commendable job with the user interface (UI). The home screen is intuitively graphical, consisting of two virtual bookshelves with media icons arrayed on them. The upper, larger bookshelf, called the "carousel," contains icons that are stacked chronologically with the last-used item on top. The lower, smaller shelf is designed to hold your favorites.

In one stroke, Amazon's bookshelf UI pays homage to its bookstore roots while also demonstrating a flair for form and function once found only in Apple products.

One of the unique features of the tablet that cannot be offered by most tablet manufacturers is that the purchaser can access the massive media content that Amazon can dole out. They offer access to over 100,000 movies and TV programs, endless numbers of reading material, games and the like. You can view magazines in vivid color displayed over 16 million colors via the touchscreen. The Fire weighs in at 413 grams or 14.6 ounces for the uninitiated. The battery life takes about 8 hours if you are reading books, a little less for continued video use.

It's Wi-Fi capable, so you can read e-mail and just about anything you might ordinarily do on the web. It accesses hotspots and Wi-Fi networks that feature 802.11b,802.11n and 802.11g. The Kindle Fire tablet runs on the Android operating system, and that gives users access to Google's Android Apps Market. So though the Apple store touts a few more offerings than Amazon in the Apps department the Google play store will come in handy.
