Amazon Announces the Kindle Fire Android Tablet, Plus Two More Cheap Kindles

I was monitoring the Amazon Press Event last night and was amazed to learn about the new Amazon Kindle Fire. Yes, it’s an e-book reader, an upscaled version of the current Kindle E-Reader. And yes, it’s an Android tablet which means you can play Android games, use Android apps from the Amazon app store, listen to music, browse the web and more. The only thing you can’t do with the Kindle Fire is to take photos since it doesn’t have a camera. Those who are looking for an Android tablet in the 7-inch range will definitely want to have the Kindle Fire. Well, perhaps everyone will want to get the Kindle Fire. You know why? It will only cost you $199!

That’s right. If you’ve been planning to have a 7-inch Android tablet. This is the device for you. Amazon is accepting pre-orders now so you better hurry up and reserve your unit in time for the promised November 15 delivery date. Unfortunately, Amazon does not deliver the Kindle Fire directly to the Philippines yet. But there’s always Johnny Air Cargo to take care of the shipping for you.

Here are the specs of the Amazon Kindle Fire Android tablet:

  • 7-inch multi-touch display with IPS technology
  • 8GB internal storage
  • Free cloud storage
  • 8 hours battery life
  • Wi-Fi
  • Support the following formats: Kindle (AZW), TXT, PDF, unprotected MOBI, PRC natively, Audible (Audible Enhanced (AA, AAX)), DOC, DOCX, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, non-DRM AAC, MP3, MIDI, OGG, WAV, MP4, VP8.
I really think that despite its limitations, the Amazon Kindle Fire is still going to be a huge success when it becomes available. The $199 price point is a game changer.
So, who’s getting one?
