Kindle Fire

By now, no doubt you know about the Kindle Fire. It was announced by Amazon at the end of September along with two new e-ink models: the keyboard-free Kindle with a d-pad controller, and the Kindle touch.

The Kindle Fire is a mystery. It could be amazing and it could be a flop. However, I’m leaning towards the former. At only $199 it is very affordable — and it’s just waiting to be jam packed with digital media like movies, TV shows, books, magazines, and more. And if you have an Amazon Prime subscription you get: (a) unlimited streaming of over 10,000 movies and TV shows; and (b) access to the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library where you can borrow the rights to read other people’s Kindle ebooks for free.

The Kindle Fire is available now for pre-order and it starts shipping in just one week on a first-ordered first-shipped basis.
