Amazon announced today the Kindle Fire Tablet. It will sell for $199 and you can pre-order it already today. The 7-inch tablet is missing a camera and only has 8GB of storage, but it got Amazon Silk. Amazon Silk is a new browser with what Amazon calls spilt architecture. The Silk browser uses the cloud to make surfing a lot faster by shifting a lot of browser functionality into the cloud. This goes way beyond what a CDN can do. Surfing the web is one of the major things tablet users are doing. If a $199 tablet is offering a faster web experience than the $499 iPad, you know what that means. We have to wait until November 15 to see the first comparison tests.
Watch the 5 minute video below that explains Amazon Silk.
