Next Gear: Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet Computer

Look, we know that Apple will probably be dropping the iPad 3 later this year—or early next—and we’re sure that it’ll be awesome. We still can’t get over how cool the iPad 2 is, so we’re excited to see what else Apple can possibly add to a tablet computer. However, there’s one thing that we’re almost positive that the iPad 3 will include—a high price tag! Which is why we’re so glad that Amazon will be giving Apple a run for their money next month when they drop the Amazon Kindle Fire

At just $199, we’re already intrigued at the thought of getting our hands on a tablet for a (relatively) low price. And we’re even more intrigued considering all the features the Fire has. From the one-of-a-kind Android OS to the fast dual-core processor to the vibrant touchscreen, the Fire looks like it might be the hottest item of the holiday season. So when it finally drops, you can rest assured knowing that we’ll be first in line to get our hands on one. And thankfully, we won’t have to empty our piggy banks to do it.
