Amazon announces 7-inch Kindle Fire for $199
It's all the buzz: the Kindle Fire, which Amazon unveiled this morning.
My initial thought: "Meh. Who needs an oversized calculator?"
But after watching this, I changed my thinking:
Amazon tends to get technology right the first time. Rarely do you see it release a product half-baked. And just stop to think about how frequently you've heard someone say, "I love my Kindle."
Fast is everything in technology.
Plus, on this device, all things Amazon are integrated: Amazon.com, its Android app store, its Cloud Drive, etc. Speaking of the cloud, that's where everything is stored — no pesky tethering to sync.
And best of all is the price: $199.
