Quick Verdict


The Amazon Kindle Fire represents astonishingly good value for money. Perhaps the best gadget bargain around right now. The company has unquestionably succeeded in doing what it set out to do.

 

Introduction

The Kindle Fire Amazons entry into the growing tablet market, and an upgrade to the Kindle e-book reader. Launched in the US in 2011 it comes with a 7 inch touch screen display (like rival Google Nexus 7) and runs on a modified version of the Android OS. The tablet has been modified to integrate with the Amazon store for books, movies, TV shows and music. Built to compete with the massive popularity of the iPad and to showcase Amazon products in a low cost tablet.

Screen and build qualiy

it is a well built device, At 7.6 by 5.4 by 0.4 inches and 13.9 ounces, it's slightly bigger, but slimmer and lighter than other Kindle models which are all monochrome. The corners rounded, and the back is softly tapered with a grippy feel. It's constructed mostly of a matt plastic material, and stereo speakers. The size makes it very portable almost pocket size,and its size,its not too big and not too small.Perfect for travelling.The display is 1024x600 pixels.

Features

The tablet unlike the iPad has no physical buttons on the face of the device, which gives the Kindle Fire a really clean look. In fact, the power button, nestled closely to the headphone jack and the Micro-USB charging port, is the only physical button and connection to be found.

There are no volume switches or screen locks. Although, there are also no camera lenses-front or back.You can add a GPS sensor to the kindle.Also included in the Kindle, Amazon has come up with its own Web browser called the Amazon Silk. It is a Web browser that crunches all of a website’s elements with Amazon’s powerful Elastic Compute Cloud service, which is supposed to provide faster loading of contents and websites.

The Kindle offers free cloud storage for all Amazon books, video and other content. Battery life is pretty good at approx 8 hours use, this reduces to around 7.5 hours of video playback.

Streaming services

The kindle is all about watching movies,the best streaming services offered are Amazons Prime service,Netflix and Hulu. Thease are the best based on the content,the accessibility and the price.

Verdict

The Amazon Kindle Fire represents astonishingly good value for money. Perhaps the best gadget bargain around right now. The company has unquestionably succeeded in doing what it set out to; to produce a brilliant media device. It's a solid tablet perfectly designed to its aim of pushing you to buy digital content from Amazon. It isn't an all-singing, all-dancing device that ticks all the boxes, but it doesn't attempt to be. It's is an enjoyable device to use and defies its price point in almost all areas.
