Kindle Fire

The Kindle Fire is another touch screen computer thats due to be released on the market in November 2011, this is set to be the new touch screen computer that is going to beat the iPad. The kindle fire will be using Googles operating system, Andriod, along with the operation system they will also have access to the Amazon Appstore where you can download music, stream movies and your favourite tv shows, you can also choose from a vast variety of books from the Kindle e-book store. It will also have its own built in mail application that allows webmail so you can log into your Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail or AOL Mail account easily and start sending and reading emails in the palms of your hands. This touch screen computer is set to cost you around about $200 so it is well on the lower end of the scale when considering buying a tablet computer. Unfortunately the device is only currently available to buy in the US, but it is scheduled to be released in other countries at a later date. The only flaw I can find with this device is that it will have a tiny internal storage space of only 8GB which some people may find to be enough, but for the people who like to have lots of music, videos, photos and apps on their tablet devices, they may look to getting another tablet with a higher storage space rather than this one. The Kindle Fire, however, does have a USB port where you can plug external storage devices into the tablet, but this still means that when your out and about you will have to carry around your external drives if you still want to access some of your files. Instead what the Kindle Fire should have done, is create the Kindle Fire to support SD cards, then customers will be able to put another 16GB or 32GB of space onto their tablets.
