I knew you guys would have something on the Fire.
I'm not sure if this is an iPad killer or not, but the Nook Color is kinda hurting right now.
I've got a budget Tablet that I'm really happy with, but I wil probably get one for my mom.
One thing I'm confused about tho.
Is this an ANDROID tablet or does it have a different OS? Amazon Market is pretty decent but there are still things you can't get on it(like Comixology AFAIK, but its not like that's an issue for my mom).
Again, thanks for this, bkthomson!
I don't see it as an iPad killer. But it could definitely split the field, with iPad taking the high-end and Fire taking the low-end.. this will probably kill the Nook Color and whatever other cheaper 7" tablets are out there, simply for Amazon's large library of movies, tv, and music.
It's an Android tablet, and is based off Android 2.3 (I think.. though I have also read 2.1) but it is almost unrecognizeable from stock Android, because they've worked alot on it apparently.
