The Amazon Kindle Fire: The Christmas Gift For 2011

[ReviewAZON name=”Kindle Fire” id=”19″ display=”inlinepost” asin=”B0051VVOB2″ trackingid=”mywebsource1-20″ country=”us” width=”200px” float=”left” imagetop=”10px”]If you are looking to purchase a gift for that special someone this year, you might want to take a look at the Kindle Fire.  The Amazon Kindle Fire is the newest edition to Amazon’s Kindle line of e-readers, but this version breaks the boundaries of the reader and comes closer to being a tablet.  This item just started shipping in mid-November and I am very impressed with the product for the price that Amazon is asking.  In fact, for this price, you could buy two Kindle Fires for less money than the Black Friday prices on the X-Box Kinect Bundle and with this, your kids are guaranteed to learn something!  With this new Kindle, you can still read books,  but now you can also watch movies, play games, browse the internet, and check your email.  What’s best is that it allows your children (or yourself) to have an easy handheld device without breaking the bank!  Kindle Fire starts at the low price of only $199.00.  If you have any more questions why this tablet is the perfect Christmas present, look no further.

While the Kindle is not a full tablet computer, it is the bridge between the tablet and the e-Reader.  It’s perfect for the student who doesn’t want to carry around 500 pounds of school books, still have the option to do some internet functions (like search and email), and enjoy a bit of entertainment.  What’s more, Kindle books and other PDF book files cost a lot less than their hardbound paper counterparts.  That means the Kindle is saving you money even after you buy it.

The Amazon Kindle Fire comes with free cloud storage which makes you forget about saving things. Kindle Fire gives you free storage for all your Amazon digital content in the Amazon Cloud. Your books, movies, music and apps are available instantly to stream or download for free, at a touch of your finger.

Browse the Internet and check your email on the go with your Kindle Fire. With previous Kindle’s, you were only capable of  just reading books. Now, the Kindle provides you an opportunity to take a little rest from book reading and browse the funny and interesting things on Internet or check your important emails.

Besides reading, browsing online, and reading your email, the Kindle also offers some of the more powerful multimedia technologies.  You can watch movies through Netflix or television shows from Hulu on your new Kindle Fire.  To me, the Kindle Fire has one very powerful strength that may make this a leading tablet in the market.  That strength is the mainstay of Amazon: Books, movies, and music.  All of this is just a touch away with the Kindle Fire with a library that rivals the iPad and iTunes.

 

myfivebest - 5WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

You don’t have to believe me. I’ve used this product myself, and personally, know of two people who have a Kindle Fire and love it.  Take a look at what others are saying about this device:

“The first easy-to-use, affordable small-screen tablet, the Amazon Kindle Fire is revolutionary…I can’t emphasize this “ease of use” thing enough. More than anything else, that’s what’s been holding non-iPad tablets back. Amazon cracked it. End of story.”
– PC Mag

 

“The Kindle Fire is a 7-inch tablet that links seamlessly with Amazon’s impressive collection of digital music, video, magazine, and book services in one easy-to-use package. It boasts a great Web browser, and its curated Android app store includes most of the big must-have apps (such as Netflix, Pandora, and Hulu). The Fire has an ultra-affordable price tag, and the screen quality is exceptional for the price.”
– CNET

 

“The Fire gives me the features I want at a price point that’s less than half of the iPad 2. I can check my email, browse the Internet, maybe play a few games, most importantly, I can read magazines in color on a Kindle.”
– Gizmodo

 

“The Fire is a marvelous device.”
– Chicago Sun Times

 

“Amazon’s Kindle Fire is likely to be the first successful tablet not sold by Apple, and there are several good reasons for it: the low price of $199, the convenient, portable size of 7 inches, and a rich catalog of books, movies and music offered through Amazon’s Web-based services.”
