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 donï¿½t work in India, No expandable memory
Conclusion: The Kindle Fire isn't a game changer in the world of tablets, but it's a very intelligent evolution of the Amazon ecosystem. With one device, Amazon can sell you eBooks, MP3s, videos and apps--they're all just a dangerous "1 Click" away. As an affordable Android tablet, the Fire does a passable job thanks to good quality hardware like the IPS display and dual core CPU, but it lacks the Android Market, Bluetooth, cameras and a GPS, which are all standard fare on general...
Pros: Affordable, good quality, excellent Amazon shopping and support experience.
Cons: Lacks the features of a general purpose tablet, lags sometimes.
Excerpt: As evident in the pictures, the screen is quite reflective. However, you can read text and view videos with ease on the crisp and clear screen, provided you are indoors. The touch device is powered by a dual-core 1 GHz TI OMAP 4 CPU and 512 MB RAM. Other bells and whistles include Wi-Fi connectivity, 3.5 mm jack, micro-USB port, 8 GB of internal storage, and a 4400 mAh battery.
Pros: Well priced; Perfect for tablet users on a budget.
Cons: Cloud services don't work in India; Only Wi-Fi connectivity; Lacks expandable memory.
Excerpt: Because of its low price, and the fact that Amazon is the only company on the planet with the media chops to take on Apple iTunes , the Amazon Kindle Fire has been painted by some as the putative heir to the Apple iPad 2 's throne as king of tablets . Sadly, beneath the Kindle Fire's slick veneer and unparalleled shopping integration lies a tablet that fails to impress as either a tablet or as an e-reader .
Excerpt: Der er allerede solgt millioner eksemplarer af Amazon Kindle Fire i USA. Den lille 7 tommers maskine koster 200 dollars (1.100 kroner, red.) og giver adgang til Amazons virtuelle butikshylder, der er proppet med bøger, magasiner, film, tv-serier, musik og apps.
Pros: Prisbillig, Velfungerende tablet med adgang til masser af indhold
Cons: Mangler megen funktionalitet, Lille udvalg af apps i Amazon App Store, Virker ikke udenfor USA
