After years of complete utter domination (monopoly) of the global tablet market, Apple is starting to see the rise of some serious entries from various companies. One in particular seems to stand out from the rest of Apples competitors, Amazon’s “Kindle Fire” tablet. While it lacks several options that the iPad has such as camera and support for 3G, and lacks the cache of the Apples App store, it definitely makes up with other options.
Personally I love the iPad, but I like what I’m seeing in the Fire tablet. The Kindle Fire has a lightning quick browser which uses the cloud to cache web data. Amazon also uses the cloud infrastructure to deliver the vast array of data from its content libraries to the Fire. It has a beautiful color touch screen, run apps and plays videos similar to the iPad. It is smaller than the iPad with a 7” screen. Now for the moment of truth!!! iPad=$499 Kindle Fire=$199. Just food for thought and there’s a lot more coming. Questions? Comments?
