Kindle Fire Review

  1. 1. Kindle Fire Review(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return;js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src ="//";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, "script", "facebook-jssdk"));Amazon Kindle Fire SpecsHeight: 7.5 inchesWidth: 4.7 inchesDepth: 0.45 inchesWeight: 14.6 oz.Kindle FireWhat can I say? The Fire is Sleek, portable, and lightweight. At first glance this thing looksamazing for the price. There’s no cost to comparison when you pay $199 at most retailers. Iakin this to car buying, sure you can get a BMW which is a top of the line car and a finemotoring specimen, but, you can also buy a Hyundai that is proving it’s motoring stance in theworld with just the same luxury and power all for a low, low, price of half of what a BMW cost. Sure there are a few bells and whistles you are not going to get with a Hyundai but that’s whatcomes with the territory when you buy at a cheaper price. Both vehicles have four wheels, asteering wheel, and takes petrol so therefore both vehicles will get you to the same location. Albeit the difference is style and performance not to mention one of them has a cool lookingbadge. The Kindle Fire is not just an awesome e-Reader, it is an e-Reader on steroids!Tech SpecsRaised in a boring landscape of green and pale colors, the Kindle Fire was born as the chosenone. With its very capable 7 inch screen with a display resolution of 1024x600 and spouting 16million colors, the Kindle Fire will allow you to watch movies in a brilliant fashion and you won’thave to strain trying to figure out subtitles. The touch screen capability is very good. A lightswipe with my finger and I was browsing through a few pages in e-Reader mode trying to fingerback to the original page I was at. The touch screen is responsive and light. With a goodcontrol of your fingers you will be commanding through expands, swipes, double taps, and all. "...this device is reserved for those who are new to the tablet scene..."Processing power comes from a 1 GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 dual-core processor. You are probably thinking about your old scientific calculator that you made your mom buy youin high school because it was for math class but instead you ended up typing boobies on it toimpress your friends. Well this is not your old high school calculator and I’m pretty sure you 1/3
  2. 2. can Google boobies on your own with this Kindle Fire so it definitely holds its own. Multi-taskingon the Kindle Fire is on par and up to standard. I was able to run Pandora, load 7 web pages,and switch back and forth to a game app without much hesitation from the unit. Although theKindle Fire is up to standard on this front, I cannot imagine a true tech junkie clamoring for thisdevice and wanting to go above and beyond its processing power and capability. In my opinion,this device is reserved for those who are new to the tablet scene and want a fresh perspectiveon the tablet and e-Reader. It will allow the consumer market to try out something new thatdoesn’t cost them an arm and a leg. Oh, and don’t forget about the people that love e-Books,them too! Apps pop up with minimal lag so there really isn’t a noticeable wait time unless thereis a loading time with the specific app due to content and having it utilize the wifi connection toconnect to the internet.The Fire has an internal 8 GB of storage so if you are looking to mass load all of your music andmovies on this device you might have to look elsewhere for a more compatible device. Thereare two type of storage that the Kindle can offer though, the aforementioned 8 GB storage andthe cloud storage offered by Amazon. This is for strictly media that is purchased throughAmazon. So technically you could have your whole music, book, and movie library in the cloud! With regard to battery life on the Kindle Fire, again it is comparable but by no means superior. While Amazon states that the Kindle Fire can do "up to 8 hours of continuous reading, or 7.5hours of video playback, with wireless off", that is some pretty nice looking stats there for theavid tech junkie. Who stays on a tablet for 8 hours straight anyway?!Noticeably LackingThe Fire is noticeably lacking some multimedia inputs like a camera, microphone, and add-onmemory. You definitely will not be using this device for any type of communication besides textmessaging while you are at home. The Kindle Fire is strictly a wifi device so any thoughts aboutusing it on the run, in the car, or at work to access the internet, well…there goes that idea. Youare probably a slave to your cell phone anyway so just access Facebook through your mobilecell phone device there buddy! This is the first iteration of the Kindle Fire so look forward tothose much anticipated add-ons to make it onto the second iteration of the Fire. Go, go, gadgetadd-ons Amazon!Ins and OutsThe Kindle Fire has amazing screen for a first of its type coming from Amazon. It is a lot likeusing your android phone (if you have one). It is very customizable with different apps out there(although some might not be trusted content). There are probably an abundance of websitesdedicated to the reworking and reorganizing (that I mean by hacking, sshh!) of the operatingsystem that a dedicated tech junkie can go for hours figuring out how to do things differently onthe Kindle Fire. Amazon did right by this product its first go round and got much of what youcan do on an iPad into the Fire that I would say it is at least, by minimum a comparable device. In no way is it an iPad but if all you had was $200 laying around and wanted something to bringwith you into bed and watch a movie, read a book, or play a short game of Angry Birds, thisdevice would be perfect. 2/3
  3. 3. Last But Not Least "...something you want if you are looking for an extra mobile device laying around..." The Amazon Kindle Fire is a robust device with multiple uses. It can satisfy the young, the middle aged, and the elderly…all at once! It may be a bit bulky and slightly on the heavy side, but it is a jack of all trades and not just a master at one. The Amazon Kindle Fire is something you want if you are looking for an extra mobile device laying around or if you are new to the tech savvy tablet scene and want to upgrade to something more than your cell phone. With the Amazon Kindle Fire you can’t beat the price and affordability, at least not for now. Author: Robert Kindle Fire Review 3/3Powered by TCPDF (
