Amazone Kindle Fire | Comparison | How To Buy Kindle Fire | Issues in kindle Fire

 Amazon introduced us to the $199 Fire at a hectic New York City event, but in truth that was only about six weeks agoThe Fire is a simple, black thing with nothing in the way of styling pretenses. In fact, one could say it has nothing in the way of styling whatsoever.Flip it over and you'll see the word "kindle" subtly embossed across the back, only really visible if you hold the tablet at an angle in some light. Otherwise the matte, rubberized back absorbs too much and you can't spot that one bit of styling indulgence the designers allowed themselves here. There's an extremely subtle "Amazon" print below too and, beyond some scribbles from the FCC, that's it.
It's the dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP processor that powers the PlayBook, but here it's paired with only 512MB of RAM and a mere 8GB of storage, of which about six and a half will be available to you and your ever-growing multimedia collection. Ostensibly, you won't need much since Amazon so thoughtfully lets you re-download anything you've bought any time you want, and is quite happy to stream all your music to you as well. But, if you're the type who likes to load down your tablet before spending a few hours or days offline, you might find this single, tiny capacity a bit restrictive. It's a shame Amazon doesn't offer a $250 16GB version, and a $300 32GB option too.If you are streaming content you'll be doing it over WiFi, as there's no 3G option yet. The tablet supports 802.11b/g/n on 2.4GHz and had no problem picking up and staying connected to wireless networks that weren't necessarily offering up full signal strength, but we kind of wish there were a 5GHz option. Fire is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. That's the phone-friendly version of the OS that hasn't shown up in a top-tier tablet for quite some time

Kindle Fire vs iPad 2

As you can see from the basic specs above, the Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet are direct competitors to each other and it will be interesting to see which tablet comes out ahead. Until we receive both tablets in mid November, we can only guess based off of the specs and the currently available info which is better. Based on currently available information, my preference right now would still be for a Kindle Fire because it’s the least expensive while still offering a huge number of features, plus the awesome selection of movies and TV shows that come with an Amazon Prime membership (you get a free month with your Fire too). As always, we’ll keep this review updated as more information becomes available. For now, let’s compare the Kindle Fire and the Ipad 2:

The Kindle Fire clearly does not have as many features as the iPad 2, but the question really becomes: “Are the extra features of the iPad 2 worth $300+?” The answer for many people is going to be, “No.” Let’s look at the basic $500 version of the iPad 2. Going straight down the feature list in the table above, the obvious standout is the huge price difference. Apple has long charged a premium for their products above and beyond what competing companies charge for similarly spec’d tablet PCs. This is nothing new. So the price is a huge difference in favor of the Kindle Fire.
