Based on those specifications, then, Amazon’s first tablet certainly doesn’t look like the “iPad killer” that it was initially rumored to be, but it’ll certainly be a tasty alternative to some.

Blackberry, Apple, Android and now its time for Amazon Kindle Fire, yes its firing up...

The Amazon Kindle is an e-book reader developed by Amazon.com subsidiary Lab126 which uses wireless connectivity to enable users to shop for, download, browse, and read e-books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, and other digital media.[1] The Kindle hardware devices use an E Ink electronic paper display that shows up to 16 shades of gray, minimizes power use and simulates reading on paper.

There have been several iterations of hardware devices for this platform, including a main Kindle line (first introduced 2007) and a Kindle DX line with a larger screen (introduced 2009). Devices with touch sensitive screens (Kindle Touch), and a reader with a color display (Kindle Fire) were announced in September 2011, along with a keyboardless low priced (Kindle) model. With the introduction of the 2011 Kindles the original Kindles are renamed Kindle Keyboard.
