The Kindle Fire

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

The tablet is making its way into everyone hands...of course, only after we fork over $200-$800 for each one.
I did a little research (haha-A LOT of research) to decide which tablet was best for me. I will generally use it for music, movies, books, games and some web surfing. It will also need to withstand my 5 year-old son, the possibility of being tossed in my purse, and the probability of being dropped/replaced. So, with that, I decided the iPad was just WAY too overpriced ($400-at the lowest price) for my considered usage and the other "tablets" are so new, they are still working out the kinks. I started looking into the readers; the Nook and Kindle in particular. I did a comparison and decided that the Kindle Fire had more features that would better fit my lifestyle. Also, I am an Amazon Prime Member and love shopping on the website, so this just adds more features to Kindle Fire. (If you love shopping online, free online movies and rentals and want your purchases in your hand within 2 days-GET AMAZON PRIME! Nothing beats having Amazon Prime during the holidays!) I purchased the Kindle Fire for $169.00, refurbished, and will have it in my hands tomorrow-I'm so excited! Reviews on the refurbished Kindle Fire ASAP :)

The Fire gives me the features I want at a price point that's less than half of the iPad 2.
I can check my email, browse the Internet, maybe play a few games, most importantly,
I can read magazines in color on a Kindle." - Gizmodo
The Fire is a marvelous device." - Chicago Sun Times
Amazon’s Kindle Fire is likely to be the first successful tablet not sold by Apple, and there
are several good reasons for it: the low price of $199, the convenient, portable size of 7 inches,
and a rich catalog of books, movies and music offered through Amazon’s Web-based services." - Ars Technica

Can you even imagine the profits of a tablet?! Let's just say 500 people purchase an ipad ($700-middle-of-the-road). Those 500 people have spent $350,000!! That is more than double the price of my brand-new house! Unbelievable!
