Kindle Fire

The Kindle Fire is the most recent addition to Amazon's Kindle line of portable e-book reader devices. The Kindle Fire debuted in late 2011 as a 7-inch Android v2.3 "Gingerbread"-powered $199 tablet computer designed to compete with similar devices like the NOOK Tablet and the Apple iPad. In addition to the vast collection of e-books available from Amazon, the Kindle Fire also includes access to Amazon's Appstore for thousands of apps as well as streaming movie and TV content.

The Kindle Fire is Wi-Fi enabled and delivers Web content via Amazon's Silk cloud-accelerated, Flash-enabled "split browser" Web browser. It also taps into Amazon’s collection of Web services and cloud storage to deliver faster performance, enriched capabilities and additional storage space for users.
