  • 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.
  • Pros: Affordable, good quality, excellent Amazon shopping and support experience.
  • Cons: Lacks the features of a general purpose tablet, lags sometimes.

  • Pros: A great platform for casual video playback. A perfectly fine Android 2.3 app device. A price that pleads “buy me,” repeatedly, until you crack a big grin, and give in like a good-natured father buying trinkets for the kids at Wal-Mart.
  • Cons: Small screen size and insufficient processing power. Crap browser performance. Near useless as a magazine reader, and roundly trumped by superb e-ink Kindles as a book reader.

  • 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.
  • 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.
