Full-color Kindle Fire
18 million movies, TV shows, songs, magazines, books, thousands of popular apps and games. Quite a mouth full – or shall we say, screen full – but that’s how Amazon introduces their new full-color Kindle Fire.
That sounds very nice to all us normal souls who enjoy a good movie, some music and a good book when time permits but if you’re the geeky kind, you’ll appreciate the rest Amazon has to say about the Fire:
>> Free cloud storage for all your Amazon content
>> Ultra-fast web browsing on the Amazon Silk browser which also supports Flash.
>> Inbuilt Wi-Fi connectivity to connect to hotspots.
>> USB 2.0 connector to connect to all your other geeky gadgets or camera or printer.
For the rest of us, we’ll enjoy the “vibrant color touchscreen – with extra-wide viewing angle – that is extra durable and resistant to accidental bumps and scrapes” and the fact that the internal 8gig hard drive is enough storage for movies, hundreds of songs and thousands of books. And the peace of mind that what cannot be stored on the hard drive can be stored on the Amazon cloud and accessed for free.
All not bad for a colorful gadget that measures only 7.5″ x 4.7″ x 0.45″ (190 mm x 120 mm x 11.4 mm) and weighs only 14.6 ounces (413 grams). Even better, the Kindle Fire costs only $199.
