Kindle Fire – Amazon New Fire Tablet Kindle Touch
The New Amazon Kindle Fire E-Reader
Since its debut in November 2007, the Amazon Kindle has been a great success. Amazon has sold over 18 million Kindles already. However, Amazon’s success and high sales cannot hold a candle to Apple’s recent success in sales. Since April 2010, Apple has sold approximately 29 million iPads. They are also estimated to sell 75% of all of the tablets sold this year.
However, Amazon is hopeful of a quick comeback in sales of ebook readers. Since November 2007, Amazon has produced three new Kindles. They have also lowered the price of the initial entry-level Kindle to $79, making this e-reader affordable for many demographics. (Especially those merely wanting an e-reader that is dependable and can get the job done.) The most recent model is the Kindle Fire. Its current price is $199, which is a steal compared to Apple iPad costing $499. The Kindle fire has a 7” colored display and uses Android (by Google) as an operating system. These factors could lower not only Apple’s business, but also the business of other leading competitors such as Hewlett Packard.
When the Amazon Kindle was first introduced, many predicted that it would “fail and fail terribly.” However, e-books have quickly climbed the charts in production, and in the past three years have started passing traditional, printed paper books.
Amazon is firm in the belief that continually making innovations to a product is the key to keeping their Kindle at such a high demand when it comes to e-readers. It is true that Amazon has made not only many innovations, but also developments to the Kindle since its release in November 2007. Recently, Amazon made the announcement that the Kindle Touch will be available for $99. The Kindle Touch comes with built in WiFi abilities, and not to mention, an advanced e-ink screen. (With the Touch’s e-ink screen, you could legitimately sign documents. Imagine the possibilities!) If the Kindle Touch 3G is purchased, it comes with free 3G wireless without any fees or contracts for just $149. Both the Kindle Touch and the Kindle Touch 3G can be pre-ordered, and they are set to ship on November 21st of this year.
The entry-level Kindle that is currently selling for just $79, is basic in its features (non-touch screen for example), but is still a sleek and effective design. (This Kindle weighs a mere 6 ounces!) This is a part of the special offers included while Kindle is expanding to support Amazon Local. Amazon is still building all of its media services including streaming music, movies, television, and more.
The new Kindle Fire was birthed from a simple question; “Is there a way that all of the advanced features, sleek design and affordability can be brought together in one remarkable product?” The answer was the Kindle Fire. The Kindle Fire has a 7” display screen and dual core processor. All of this is packaged in just 14.6 ounces. For reassurance, Amazon’s cloud service backs all of the available content on the Kindle Fire. Syncing on the Kindle Fire is easy and noninvasive. This is because Amazon believes that syncing should be done in the background with no hassle, and wirelessly. Their Whispersync services work the same with movies as they do with e-books. Regarding the Kindles, it has been said that these are premium products for prices that are not premium.
Introducing Amazon Silk
Today (Sep 28, 2011) in New York, Amazon introduced Silk, an all-new web browser powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and available exclusively on the just announced Kindle Fire. You might be asking, “A browser? Do we really need another one?” As you’ll see in the video below, Silk isn’t just another browser. We sought from the start to tap into the power and capabilities of the AWS infrastructure to overcome the limitations of typical mobile browsers. Instead of a device-siloed software application, Amazon Silk deploys a split-architecture.
All of the browser subsystems are present on your Kindle Fire as well as on the AWS cloud computing platform. Each time you load a web page, Silk makes a dynamic decision about which of these subsystems will run locally and which will execute remotely. In short, Amazon Silk extends the boundaries of the browser, coupling the capabilities and interactivity of your local device with the massive computing power, memory, and network connectivity of our cloud.
