Amazon’s Kindle Fire

Today, Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos announced the new tablet called Kindle Fire, considered to provide some competition to Apple’s iPad finally. None others including HP, Nokia, Samsung, and RIM have been able to rise up to the standards of iPad so far.

So what’s exciting about Kindle Fire? First and foremost is its price of $199. With a dual core chip and fine display, it is probably losing money or has a razor-thin margin. But here are some of its salient features:

  • It is called a media tablet that pulls together all of Amazon’s media services – Amazon Web Services, Instant Video, Kindle books, Amazon MP3 music store, cloud storage and Android App store.
  • Yes, it is the best Android device so far
  • It introduces a new mobile browser called Silk which uses Amazon EC2 to load pages faster
  • It is WiFi only, no 3G announced yet
  • All media is backed up and synced wirelessly in the cloud

The essence of iPad’s success is its design and usability combined with the myriad applications available. Someone said it will be a war between Amazon’s cloud and Apple’s cloud. Amazon has pioneered cloud services better than anyone in the industry, so their credibility to deliver cloud services is very high.

Kindle Fire can have books, but if that is all you need, then go for the $99 Kindle Touch. However, for an extra $100, see all the media stuff you can get. Bezos repeated this morning – a premium product at non-premium price. The Android developer community can add lots of applications over time.

Amazon’s media services include 18 million digital books, movies, songs, apps and games. All these are accessible via the new media tablet Kindle Fire.
