Amazon Kindle Fire (2012)

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.

Amazon Kindle Fire 7" Tablet Review

Notebookcheck
8 January 2012
  • Summary: Complete Amazon experience. Amazon caught the tablet world by storm when the retailer announced its first multimedia tablet for just $199 USD. Is the performance and hardware reflective of the budget price? or is the Kindle Fire greater than the sum of its parts?
  • Pros: Entry-level price, Excellent connectivity to Amazon services, Great screen quality w/ Gorilla Glass, Good speakers, Acceptable performance, Acceptable battery life, The Kindle Fire performs and offers an experience that eclipses all other budget tablets at the $200 price range. The solid build quality, access to the Amazon cloud and large selection of Amazon books and videos is something that can't be said for some tablets that are over twice as expensive. Amazon Prim...
  • Cons: Little to no extra features, No expandability options, Screen can be too small for some, No haptic feedback, No dedicated Home/Back buttons, Glossy surface, A larger screen could appeal to more multimedia buffs looking for more screen real estate. A lighter 7-inch Kindle Fire would also make the tablet easier to use for extended periods of time. Although we understand that additional connectivity options might increase the cost of the tablet, a microSD card reader or ...

Kindle Fire Review

25 December 2011
  • Conclusion: If you're trying to decide between an iPad and the Kindle Fire, you've got several things to consider. The iPad peforms better, with better features. Of course, the iPad is significantly larger -- certainly too big to carry in your pocket.  The iPad also costs more: at least two and a half times the price of the Kindle Fire.
  • Pros: Check out that price tag, Support for Adobe Flash Player, Solid web browser for basic web browsing, The wealth of Amazon content at your fingertips, Video streaming and book-borrowing for free with Prime membership, Great deals on apps in Amazon app store, Check out that price tag, Support for Adobe Flash Player, Solid web browser for basic web browsing, The wealth of Amazon content at your fingertips, Video streaming and book-borrowing for free with Prime membership,...
  • Cons: No Camera, No Bluetooth, No HDMI, No SD card slot or expandable storage, Poor placement of power button and headphone jack, 0, Limited app selection compared to full Android market

Amazon Kindle Fire Review

  • Conclusion: My out of the box experience with the Kindle Fire was not as good as I had expected. Sure, the very initial setup was a breeze, since it logged in my Amazon account automatically (which it won't do with devices bought at retail stores or ordered from Amazon as gifts), but the user interface somewhat got in my way, and the touchscreen didn't always seem to respond well in my first hour of use.

  • Conclusion: Amazon has upped its game with the Kindle Fire. The device is the most focused tablet on the market. Those who purchase it will know exactly what they are getting into and the tutorials and simple interface mean that almost anyone will understand how to use and enjoy the Fire. We’re not sure if Google is entirely happy that Amazon has shunned the Android Market in favor of its own, but Android is an open-source operating system, so the online retailer can do what it...
  • Pros: Easy to set up, Easy to use, Easy to explain, Simple design, Cheap price, Great content, Portable
  • Cons: No microSD, Bluetooth, camera, Can get oddly sluggish here and there, Needs more RAM, Small 7-inch screen

Amazon Kindle Fire Review

Phone Arena
18 November 2011
  • Conclusion: In a nutshell, if you currently own an iPad or Android tablet, you’re not missing anything. However, if you are on the market, looking for a tablet, the Amazon Kindle Fire has something to offer, thanks to its killer pricing. When compared to the better 7-inch tablets, it is rather limited – the Amazon Appstore is not as rich as the Android Market (or Apple's iOS App Store), but still has lots to offer.
  • Pros: Very affordable, Solid construction
  • Cons: Amazon Appstore is very limited compared to the Android Market, Inconsistent performance, No video chat camera

  • Excerpt: The Amazon Kindle Fire is a low cost tablet computer that was first released in November 2011 and has gone on to become one of the most popular Android-powered tablets ever. It can be argued that it contributed a great deal in popularizing the 7-inch tablet form factor. Despite the fact that it runs an older version of the Android software, it managed to attract a great deal of attention from all around the world.
