Amazon surprised at yesterday's media event with the introduction of a high-end tablet that takes on the Apple iPad and Android tablets. Amazon created with the Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch a tablet that puts every other tablet vendor on notice. The 16GB model sells for only $299. Amazon made a point in the presentation why they can offer a tablet like this for just $299.
Jeff Bezos wants to make money from the content you buy on the KindleFire HD. He does not care to make a dime on the hardware. This means all tablet vendors without e-commerce platform are f!@# right now.
Amazon did not just introduce one Kindle Fire HD, but offers different choices of screen sizes and storage and 4GLTE connectivity.

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.
