Amazon Kindle Fire (2012) Review: For The Budget Minded, A Great Entertainment Device - But Not Much Else

Android Police
18 October 2012
  • Summary: Therein lies the catch with the Kindles. If you're looking for a tablet computer , the Kindle is almost certainly not for you. The system is too inflexible and locked down, and they're designed from the ground up to serve as a middleman. Those who are looking for a very simple, streamlined experience will find that it's well worth tehe amazingly low price. But for everyone else....

  • Summary: Overall opinion: If you are a US shopaholic addicted to Amazon, this might be the mobile device that is tailor-made for you. If you prefer other shopping venues and sites for, say, price comparisons or international service, seek another device. This one will be a waste of money.

Amazon Kindle Fire

5 March 2012
  • Summary: Yes, it is an expensive tablet, on paper. Yes, it has a very sleek form factor. Yes, the UI looks brilliant. But, this is essentially a U.S. only device at the moment, and you can't even download basic stuff like apps without a valid credit card from a financial establishment in the U.S. We don't think this device makes sense to buy in India.
  • Pros: Sleek design, IPS display is excellent, Eye catching UI, Enticing price, at least on paper
  • Cons: Most features don�t work in India, No expandable memory

Amazon Kindle Fire Review

The Gadgeteer
31 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The Kindle Fire is already a wildly popular device because of its sub $200 price tag and Amazon’s brand reputation. The reasons why I like the Fire are its price, compact size, nice display, snappy performance and good battery life. The reasons why I don’t like this device are the lack of 3G, Bluetooth, dedicated volume and menu buttons, laggy web browser and no access to Google’s app market or core apps (Gmail, Calendar, etc.).
  • Pros: Compact, Snappy performance and great battery life, Nice display, 5GB free cloud storage, Free 1 month of Amazon Prime
  • Cons: Laggy web browser, No Bluetooth, No microphone, No camera

Amazon Kindle Fire review

20 January 2012
  • Excerpt: This fall, Amazon surprised everyone with the release of the Kindle Fire. There had been a couple clues beforehand, but still no one expected the product Amazon announced. The Fire is an Android tablet, yes, but it is also something more. It is a specially optimized tool for accessing Amazon's numerous cloud services, and it just happens to run Android as well.

PC Magazine
14 January 2012
  • Conclusion: While the entry-level Kindle Fire is a price leader at $159, it doesn't quite measure up to this year's crop of $199 tablets.
  • Pros: Inexpensive. Easy to use. Acceptable performance. Promising parental controls on the way.
  • Cons: Comes with ads. Outpaced in most ways by slightly more expensive tablets.

  • Excerpt: Is it an eReader or a tablet? Kindle or iPad killer? Does it really matter? Packing a dual-core CPU, Gorilla Glass coated multi-touch 7″ IPS panel, and its own special brew of Android, the 14.6 ounce Amazon Kindle Fire ($199) is all about the content. Sure, it may lack some niceties like a camera, mic or 3G connectivity, but this little beast is the best alternative to the iPad we’ve seen yet.

Amazon Kindle Fire review: It’s no iPad killer, and that is why it will succeed

The Boy Genius Report
11 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Amazon has been a leader in the eBook reader space since it first introduced the Kindle eReader in November 2007. At that point in time, the Kindle had a 6-inch E Ink display that supported just four shades of gray, it included 250MB of storage that could accommodate about 200 eBooks, and it retailed for $399. For the first six months or so, Amazon couldn’t keep the device in stock — it was a smash hit.
