After months of speculation, Amazon.com today finally took the wraps off its long-awaited Android tablet, the Kindle Fire. With a 7-inch touch screen, it offers access to movies, TV shows, music, e-books, email, a web browser and cloud storage, in addition to Android apps and games.
We can debate whether it’s technically a direct competitor to the iPad, but there’s no question that many people will give it serious consideration as an alternative to the popular Apple device, particularly given Kindle Fire’s $199 price — even lower than the $250 that had been expected.
Then again, the Kindle Fire is hardly the only tablet out there.
