New Amazon Tablet Now Available Along With Three New Kindles [News]

Ads by Google

Amazon has finally launched their much awaited tablet – Kindle Fire. The new lean mean machine is basically a 7-inch Android tablet for only $199, on which you can do anything you would be able to do on a regular wi-fi tablet. In short, Fire is not just for books, it’s for movies, apps, music, and more. The Fire does not have a camera or a microphone, and has no 3G version, but the price tag Amazon put on it certainly makes it a contender.

The Fire comes with 1GHz dual-core CPU, 8GB of internal storage, 512MB of RAM, free storage on Amazon Cloud Storage and the new “Amazon Silk” browser. It does not, however, have access to Android Market, only to the Android Appstore. Appstore is currently not available worldwide, which means that in certain locations Fire users might not enjoy the full experience the tablet can provide.

Along with Kindle Fire, Amazon has unleashed some other new members to the Kindle family. They are now offering the newest version of the Kindle for only $79, and a new Kindle Touch with touch screen in both 3G and wi-fi only versions. You can also still get the old keyboard version if you want.
