Amazon is in the spotlight these days due to the unveiling of its own tablet, the Kindle Fire. Apart from it being clocked at 1 GHz dual core, it is also aggressively priced at $199 (roughly PHP 9000) which definitely slapped the faces of all Android tablet manufacturers using its bare left hand.
Since it’s an Amazon brand, Kindle Fire poses a threat because it treats a great price for its hardware and all the possible offers that Amazon could give. However, Kindle Fire is quite an alien to other Android tablets because it’s using heavily skinned version of Android 2.3. Likewise, it’s also a disadvantage on its part that it is only accessible in Amazon Store instead of Android Market.
According to YugaTech, the tablet is somewhat similar to Nook Color of Barnes and Noble aside from the fact that it is clocked at 1 GHz. However, I’m still excited for this puppy. Watch out for it because it will be out on November 15. Check out the Fire’s specs below.
