What to Expect From a Kindle Fire Tablet

Labels: , ,

It probably comes as no surprise that Amazon is set to launch the Kindle Fire Tablet in November. One big question seems to be how it compares to the iPad. Maybe the question to be asked should be how it will be used or what do you really need from a Tablet. Often times shiny new objects blind us, and we make poor choices. There is no doubt that the iPad is an impressive shiny toy! But will you really use its many features? So, is it a need, will its many features really be used or is it just another gadget that we want?

Now let's consider the alternate: the Kindle Fire Tablet is small and can easily be carried in a pocket or a purse. It can be held in one hand, movies can be viewed in true widescreen on the 7" color Touchscreen, and it is well made. It is extremely user friendly, and at $199 it is more affordable than the iPad. On the other hand, it does not have the same features as the iPad, but this is where you really need to get honest and think about personal needs when purchasing a Tablet.

So what is missing from the Kindle Fire? It does not have a camera which means no video chatting. It does not have Bluetooth technology which means no wireless connection to a separate keyboard. It does not have access to the thousands of apps found with the iPad.

The Fire does focus on Amazon content. If your primary use will be reading books and magazines, watching movies, checking email and browsing the Web, this may be the ideal tool. It does have access to some games and apps. Personally I have considered and then reconsidered the purchase of an iPad but realistically don't need access to the thousands of apps found on the iPad. For me, the Kindle Fire Tablet should be the perfect fit.

In reality, the Kindle Fire Tablet and the iPad cannot be honestly compared. It would be like comparing a Granny Smith apple (used for baking pies) to a Red Delicious apple (ready to eat). Both are apples but they serve different needs and purposes, and so it is with the Kindle. It fills an entirely different niche; not everyone needs the full featured iPad. Providing a Tablet with most of the commonly used features at a reasonable price makes a lot of sense. By the way, saving about $300 is high on my list of pros. So, I'm looking forward to receiving the Fire
