Great post! I'm personally excited about the Silk browser, although I do have privacy concerns about Amazon pre-processing everything I do on the web...

The low price seems to be the biggest advantage this tablet has, but I'm disappointed by the lack of important apps like Netflix.

I would be surprised if Amazon allowed Netflix onto its app store. I'd love to be wrong about that and it would be cool to see Amazon let competitors in, but I don't see it happening.

Right, especially because they're going to be pushing Prime for free video streaming

I like how streamlined the Fire is. It's the one non-iPad tablet that seems to have been made with a vision beyond "iPad competitor".

Yeah, they have gone to produce a different kind of tablet among all the others that have been in the market and bitten the dust.

I think the Kindle Fire could be the iPad killer for those who are looking for something more affordable and have more functions than a Kindle.

Sahil1847d ago (Edited 1847d ago )

the fire could really give the iPad some intense competition due to the price factor, win-win for us.

Let's hope there would be a price drop for the iPad 3 ;)

The 2 biggest issues for me are the lack of 3G and local storage space, if they had a slightly more expensive version with these 2 things I'd be interested.
(The fact it's US only prevents me from getting one anyway but still).

Sahil1847d ago (Edited 1847d ago )

Not so concerned about storage but they shud've had 3G, atleast.
