Amazon Kindle is on Fire [Photos]

Jeff Bezos definitely declared war on the iPad and all eBook reader makers with today's Event.

Amazon Kindle is on Fire
 
 

I am still trying to digest everything what Jeff Bezos unveiled today in New York. We knew that the 7-inch Kindle Fire was coming. We did not expect that it is going to sell for only $199 and that it is actually not a compromise product. It runs on a dual-core CPU and offers neat stuff like cloud accellerated web browsing. This tablet is just off the hook for that price. Sure it misses a camera and only has 8GB of storage, but it works and the UI looks great. The Kindle Fire pre-order has already started. It will ship on November 15. I highly recommend to order now. I totally expect Amazon selling out of the Kindle Fire at launch.

Besides the Kindle Fire, Amazon unveiled a Kindle Touch priced at $99. The thing looks really easy to use. A Kindle Touch Wi-Fi + 3G for $149 is also available. Both Kindle Touch Models will ship November 21. Pre-order the Kindle Touch.

But that is not all. Amazon hands out a hard blow at the low-end eBook makers with the new $79 Kindle. At $79 there is no question anymore not to buy a Kindle. Amazon dropped the keyboard making it smaller and lighter.

Below we have published a gallery of the exciting moments of the Amazon press conference. Jeff Bezos really delivered a great show and a big blow to Apple and eReader makers. Apple will fight back with iOS 5, but not a new tablet this year. I already feel sorry for all Android tablet makers. The Holidays belong to Amazon and Apple.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
