Amazon Kindle Fire 7" Tablet Review

 

Complete Amazon experience. Amazon caught the tablet world by storm when the retailer announced its first multimedia tablet for just $199 USD. Is the performance and hardware reflective of the budget price? or is the Kindle Fire greater than the sum of...

Kindle Fire Review

 

For months prior to the Kindle Fire announcement, pundits were quick to label it “iPad killer.” However, Google has more to fear than Apple: the 7-inch device further fragments Android with a slick new UI that completely disguises (and improves upon)...

Amazon Prime members get additional perk of 100,000+ free movies and TV shows plus Kindle Owners’ Lending Library for $79/year. More user-friendly than any other Android-based device on the market. Perfect for frequent Amazon shoppers, who are treated...

Screen is too small for comfortably reading magazine content without zooming. Limited app selection, especially for Google lovers. Some popular apps blocked from installation at launch (Plex, Zinio, doubleTwist). Facebook “app” just a shortcut to...

While the iPad continues to offer the slickest tablet experience overall, we actually prefer the Kindle Fire for reading books, and the 7-inch form factor is a nice middle ground between smartphones and a 10-inch tablet. You’ll have to pry the iPad 2...

Amazon Kindle Fire (2012)

 

Call it the Kid Fire. The new Amazon Kindle Fire ($159 direct) has been slightly updated from last year's model, with the price pulled down to make it more appealing. But even though it's just as capable as last year's Editors' Choice tablet, there are...

Inexpensive. Easy to use. Acceptable performance. Promising parental controls on the way

Comes with ads. Outpaced in most ways by slightly more expensive tablets

While the entry-level Kindle Fire is a price leader at $159, it doesn't quite measure up to this year's crop of $199 tablets.

Amazon Kindle Fire ( 2012)

 

Editors' note (September 25, 2013): The product reviewed here has been discontinued and replaced with a redesigned Kindle Fire HD .

The Kindle Fire (2012) improves on its predecessor in three key ways: faster performance, a better interface with cool new features, and a significant price reduction.

Designwise it's the same Fire from 2011 with no HD video support, no camera, no HDMI, no storage expansion, and no volume buttons.

The Kindle Fire (2012) takes it up a notch in value, but is tethered to the same design oversights of the original.

Amazon Kindle Fire review: Midnight oil

 

Like the world needs another 7" Android tablet. Well, maybe it does. Or (more likely), it doesn't. No matter where you stand, the Kindle Fire couldn't be less relevant to this debate. It isn't just another Android tablet. It's a hardware Amazon...

I'll be honest here (I always am?): I don't understand the iPad comparison. The Kindle Fire and iPad 2 couldn't be more different. They are vastly different sizes, shapes and prices. They even serve slightly different functions. The search for an iPad...

Easy to set up ; Easy to use ; Easy to explain ; Simple design ; Cheap price ; Great content ; Portable

No microSD, Bluetooth, camera ; Can get oddly sluggish here and there ; Needs more RAM ; Small 7-inch screen

Amazon has upped its game with the Kindle Fire. The device is the most focused tablet on the market.

Amazon Kindle Fire Misfires

 

All eyes are on Amazon's Kindle Fire to provide fresh competition for Apple's iPad 2, today's dominant tablet. Not so fast: Beneath Kindle Fire's slick veneer and unparalleled shopping integration lies a tablet that fails to impress as either a tablet...

Easy shopping for Amazon books, music, videos ; Smooth integration of cloud and local storage

Sluggish performance ; Interface still has some bugs ; Not as flexible and versatile as other tablets

The 7-inch, Android-based Amazon Fire will appeal to those who buy books, videos, and music at Amazon, but it will frustrate those looking for a more versatile slate.

Kindle Fire review

 

When planning my review of the Kindle Fire, I knew I'd need two things: time, and a big list of music, movies, and books I wanted to dive into. I say that because I assumed going into the review that the Fire wasn't about to take the place of my...

Great Amazon content ecosystem ; User friendly, consistent UI ; Affordable

Software can be buggy ; Amazon Appstore has limited selection ; Uninspired hardware

Amazon gets into the tablet game in a big way with the $199.99 Kindle Fire
