What do we think of the new Amazon tablet?
The Kindle Fire is an amazing device offered for a price that is practically unbeatable. Currently it is very hard to buy one and the waiting lists are getting bigger every day. With this device Amazon is aiming at the huge expanding market of tablets and we think it's just a matter of time an Amazon branded product to be on top of tablet sales.
