About Amazon Kindle
Fresh from the success of its Kindle e-book reader line, Amazon has decided to dab into the tablet market and come up with its own line under the brand name, Kindle Fire. The tablets are Android based and come in colored LCD display.
Popularity in the Philippines
Sine Amazon is known as the largest online retailer in the world, it is not surprising that many Filipinos, especially those who are internet-savvy, know about the brand. They are also quite popular for their line of e-book readers. But as a tablet manufacturer, we can definitely say that Amazon will be viewed as a newcomer in the said arena.
At present, the local market is dominated by top brands including the iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab. Local players who are usually offering low budget tablets are also increasing in numbers, hoping to take a bite of the huge pie. For certain, Amazon Kindle has got its work cut out for it. The only good thing is that they are sure to leave the consumers impressed with their products.
Introduced to the market in September 2011, the very first Amazon Kindle Fire tablet had a price tag of $199 and featured a 7 inch IPS color touch screen display. Of course, you can expect the device to be used as an e-book as well but it actually did not feature the E-ink display which the Kindle E-Books were popular for. Aside from this, it comes with the Amazon Silk cloud-accelerated web browser that uses split architecture so that some of the processes are performed on Amazon’s web browser which results to improved webpage loading performance. Unfortunately, the first tablet only came with WiFi capabilities but no 3G. After a year, the model was updated with a faster processor and more RAM. Eventually, it was phased out to be replaced by Kindly Fire HD.
Now, the HD version is currently being sold at $154 for the 8GB and $184 for the 16GB. The tablet boasts of a 1280X800 pixels HD 7-inch LCD display with in-plane switching, anti-polarizing filter and anti-glare technologies. It has a 1.5GHz dual core processor and custom Dolby audio as well as an Imagination PowerVR 3D graphics core and a 10-hour battery life. Design-wise, you will love the smaller bezel, optimized button replacements and cleaner lines.
The Kindle Fire HD is also available in an 8.9-inch version. It has a faster processor at 1.5GHz and has a built in microphone as well as front facing HD camera.
The next in the collection is the Kindle Fire HDX which runs on 2.2GHz quad core processor and features a 1920X1200 pixel HD LCD display. It also has a front facing camera and built in microphone, which the previous model did not have. Price starts at $244.
Meanwhile, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9, as its name implies, has a bigger LCD display (8.9 inches) and higher resolution of 2560X1600 pixels. It has an 8MP rear camera in addition to the front camera. Price for this model starts at $394.
All models are capable of ultra-fast web browsing and video streaming and come with FREE unlimited cloud storage for all the Amazon content. Customers can also download the most popular mobile apps including social networking apps and games. Lastly, the tablets use the Fire OS Mojito, which starts with Android and adds built-in media libraries, productivity apps, content forward UI and other cloud services.
The tablets under the Amazon Kindle Fire brand are certainly more affordable compared with other top Android tablet brands. The features are also at par and anyone who purchases one is sure to enjoy value for their money. Consumers will also find the fewer choices to be less confusing and it is certainly easy to make a decision. Plus, we are talking about Amazon here so you can easily and conveniently purchase one of the tablets online.
Availability has always been an issue especially for Filipino buyers who will have to pay international shipping rates to purchase a Kindle Fire tablet, which drives up the price tag significantly. There are also very few local re-sellers.
