Amazon Kindle Fire – All you need to know

Posted 4th October 2011 by    email Email article     share Share article

The current market for tablets has been controlled easily with Apple’s iPad, and the public have been counting the days for a worthy competitor to be released to start and mix things up a bit. The H-P Touch-pad tried and failed  with others such as the Galaxy Tab trying to follow suite adding their bit. But no one seems to have even knocked the slightest bit of confidence from the iPad. The Kindle Fire however………

It looks like the best chance that any company has at this minute in time is Amazon with their brand new ‘Kindle Fire’ with their very interesting attitude of bringing the current niche E-reader market into the mainstream market with everyone else thus appealing to a much wider target audience.

Here is everything you need to know.


The kindle Fire has a 7 inch colour display, this being less than the iPad’s 9.7 inches, by comparison the Fire holds its own. It runs a version of Android OS that has been fully customized for effectiveness and functionality. This means that the Fire has access to all Android apps, It does not have 3G connectivity like some versions of the iPad, also there are no cameras so video conferencing is not an option.

What does it do?

The Fire lets the user have access to basically all of Amazon’s features, they have even created their very own Android app store. If you are a subscriber to Amazon Prime (Annual Membership of £49) you can have instant streaming access to Amazon’s ever growing library of all forms of multimedia, this also includes free cloud storage for all amazon content, including as many Mp3’s As you wish of course all available directly from Amazon.

New Browser?

‘Silk’ is the name of Amazons very own browser that was made to feature in the Fire. The exciting thing about it is ‘split browsing’ which means the cloud computing is a major aspect, you don’t have to depend on the devices processing power all the time, as the name suggests, the processing can be split with Amazon’s cloud computing. This means web pages load much quicker because Amazon’s computers are sharing the workload.


The Fire upon release the will retail around $200 (no price has currently been released for the UK ) which is significantly cheaper than we first thought and also much cheaper than the iPad, This shows Amazon have worked out a way to keep production efficient and maintain low production costs, Amazon will no doubt disrupt the current tablet market with prices as competitive as this. The release date of this lil beauty is November 15th, so stay tuned in.
