Rumors have been heating up that Amazon will soon be releasing new Kindle Fire tablets. This does makes sense as Amazon recently lowered the price of the Kindle family and holiday season is right around the corner. It looks like the first press shot of the a new Amazon Kindle has been leaked. Don’t be too excited it looks almost identical to the Kindle’s that are out now.
You know for me I never saw the need for an Amazon Kindle. I get all kinds of gadgets to play with and I have two tablets already, which I rarely use. I ended up winning the Kindle Fire HD at a party at CES so I was pretty curious to see what all the buzz was about. I do actually read a lot, but I tried to make the switch over to reading on tablets and it just did not stick. I think the biggest thing was that I didn’t want to carry a large tablet around with me all of the time. The Kindle Fire HD being only 7-inches is the smallest tablet I have owned or really spent an extended period of time with. After taking it out of the package I said to myself, “wow this thing is small and who would want a tablet this size?” But after using it for a few weeks it seems to be the perfect device to read on. Of course there is much more you can do on the Kindle fire HD as well so let’s go ahead and get this review started!
