  • 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: When planning my review of the Kindle Fire , I knew I'd need two things: time, and a big list of music, movies, and books I wanted to dive into. I say that because I assumed going into the review that the Fire wasn't about to take the place of my laptop.
  • Pros: Great Amazon content ecosystem, User friendly, consistent UI, Affordable
  • Cons: Software can be buggy, Amazon Appstore has limited selection, Uninspired hardware
