This morning Amazon has announced it’s newest addition into the eReader / tablet market – The Fire. According to details revealed early to Bloomberg, the Kindle Fire sports a 7-inch display and is priced at $199. Offering Wi-Fi connectivity (no 3G, camera and microphone.) One would think that it could pose threat to the tablet market – but we don’t think so.
Most other tablet devices, including the iPad and BlackBerry PlayBook, bear price tags twice that of the Kindle Fire but with the areas that Blackberry & Apple seem to thrive in – it’s safe to say that their pricing justifies what they offer.

TODAY Amazon has also cut the price of the original Kindle to $79 and has released the new Kindle Touch just in time for the holidays…
Look out its the Kindle Fire. How sweet it is and we do look forward to getting a copy to review soon on our site.
Thanks for the heads up, just seen this on Twitter and came on by.
