Amazon Heats Up Tablet Market With ‘Kindle Fire’

Amazon made the tablet market a bit more crowded, this past Wednesday, introducing three new products including its buzz-maker the ‘Kindle Fire’.

The new device is said to be a huge competitor with the Apple iPad because of Amazon’s already extensive database of music, movies, and entertainment through its online store. 

But what else makes this tablet different? Apparently it has a smaller screen, less storage, and doesn’t have 3G or a camera. But for the frugal folks, who don’t care much about features, the ‘Fire’ is $199, less than half the price of the Apple iPad. –Natelege Whaley
