Amazon has officially entered the tablet war. This morning at a press event in New York city. The tablet comes with Amazons own version of Android, apparently they “painted over the rough edges”. The 7-inch tablet comes with a Wifi, sadly no 3G but a 30-day free trial to Amazon Prime. The Prime account includes video streaming, and free 2-day shipping on all purchases through Amazon.
The big story here is that price, a new in box tablet for $199.99 is huge. Game changing to be honest…
The Amazon Kindle Fire packs a dual-core processor, an IPS display, and weighs in at 14.6 ounces.
Tablet ships November 15th, you can pre-order today.
