Aptly titled, for all you bookworms and voracious readers out there you probably know what we are talking about. The Amazon Kindle Fire, started shipping on a lower cost than expected to answer the demands of the consumer and close the gap the gap between the Nook from Barnes & Noble. Retails at $199, but with a $30 coupon local deal from Amazon, consumers in the United States can get them for a steal price of $169 and $5 worth of Amazon Instant Video Credit. For those looking to get an early Father’s Day present, this would be a perfect gift.
What’s so special about Amazon’s Kindle Fire anyway? This isn’t just your ordinary ebook reader. It has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, cloud-accelerated web browser, and easy access to over 20 million movies, video clips, songs, magazines, ebooks, and other media files. Kindle Fire comes with a free month of Amazon Prime, so you can enjoy unlimited, instant streaming of over 10,000 popular movies and TV shows at no additional cost.
Given that the Kindle Fire is cheaper than Barnes and Noble’s Nook, with the Nook’s price tag at $249. Both are expected to do very well in terms of sales. Analysts say that they estimate Amazon might sell 3 to 5 million tablets, for this quarter alone. The prices on the tablets however are not what are going to make the profit, but the after sales from various applications and other multimedia content from electronic books to videos.
Amazon once said that the Fire tablet is the best-selling item on Amazon.com and added that it was increasing production. “Based on customer response we’re building millions more than we’d planned”, as stated.
But it doesn’t end here; Amazon’s Kindle Fire will have a run for their money as Google is rumored to release Nexus 7 by the end of June. Insiders have yet to confirm what Nexus 7 is fully equipped with. You don’t need to hold your breath for too long, before you know it might make an appearance on Google’s online store.
