Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet

a tablet for media consumption

The Amazon Kindle Fire is built for media consumption. It provides a vehicle for Amazon to distribute its massive content collection. With a 7-inch IPS colour touchscreen, Kindle Fire takes Amazon beyond books. Kindle Fire, unlike other Kindle models, will support connects like TV shows, movies and full colour books and magazines.

The 7-inch touchscreen will offer a great viewing experience with 1024 x 600 pixel resolution at 169 ppi. Amazon Kindle Fire is designed to give you easy access to your content directly from the homescreen you get access to your books, movies, and music. Users will not have problem finding content as Amazon currently boasts of over 17 million songs, over a million books, and more than a 100,000 movies and TV shows.

Access your content from anywhere

Amazon Kindle Fire comes with just 8GB storage with no support for memory cards. This is likely to be disappoint some users, however, the Kindle Fire tablet will free cloud storage. Every content you buy with Kindle Fire is backedup in the cloud so, you do not have to worry about the physical capacity of the device.

You can either stream your content from the cloud or download it on your device. Hence, you can delete a content from the Kindle Fire tablet to make room for new content, but deleted content will still be available for you on your Amazon cloud storage.

The first model of the Kindle Fire tablet will come with Wi-Fi, but a 3G model is expected in 2012. The Kindle Fire tablet will also feature Amazon’s Whispersync technology, which automatically syncs your interaction with your content so that you start off where you left off across multiple device.

For example, you could be watching a movie on a Kindle Fire, and continue from where you stopped on a compatible PC or TV.

A Fast New Browser

Kindle Fire features a new browser, the Amazon Silk browser. Amazon Silk is a cloud-accelerated browser, that divides the computing power required to render a page between the browser and Amazon’s super fast cloud servers, resulting in faster loading pages.

Amazon Silk also uses some form of artificial intelligence to predict the next page you are likely to go to from your current page based on the behavior of other viewers of the page. With this knowledge, the Silk browser loads the page even before, you request. Hence the page is delivered as soon as you click on its link. The browser supports Adobe Flash.
