Amazon Kindle Fire Review Round-Up

The Amazon Kindle Fire, touted as the first real Apple iPad tablet competitor starts to ship tomorrow, November 15. Today the first wave of Kindle Fire reviews hit the web. So is the $199 tablet really a threat to the iPad?

Mashable says about the Kindle Fire in their review: "It is the closest tablet I’ve seen yet to an Apple iPad: a consistent, well-thought out marriage of hardware and services that offer an almost frictionless environment for app purchase and content consumption. This is why the iPad has been so successful and why I think the Kindle Fire, despite its imperfections, is a winner, too." This sums it up pretty good. Amazon took matters in their own hands and made a better Android Tablet experience for less than $200 than the current HoneyComb Tablets are offering (see also Black Friday HoneyComb Tablet Fire Sale).

Engadget has a more somber take, but hits in the same direction: "So, the Kindle Fire is great value and perhaps the best, tightest integration of digital content acquisition into a mobile device that we've yet seen. Instead of having a standalone shopping app the entire tablet is a store -- a 7-inch window sold at a cut-rate price through which users can look onto a sea of premium content. It isn't a perfect experience, but if nothing else it's a promising look into the future of retail commerce."

What it all means is that if you are just mainly about consuming media and like to browse the web, check email, update your social status, the Kindle is the low-cost choice of the Holiday season. If you want a powerful universal tablet that also supposed 3D gaming, wireless video transmission, gazillions of apps than the $499 Apple iPad 2 is your choice.
