We live in a very stimulating age. The technology world is undergoing completely provocative transformations so much that the future of communication is entirely shrouded in uncertainty. A name like Amazon is beginning to top the tablet news, even though Amazon Kindle Fire is not a full-fledged tablet.
Also, history is repeating itself; Amazon Kindle Fire is subtly securing a huge part of the mobile market the same way Microsoft procured huge market share at the beginning with cheaper products.
Granted, the technology behind Apple’s products is much ahead of what we have in the Kindle Fire; but the current economic climate appears to be totally in favor of the top online retailer. The Kindle Fire has quickly sold about 6 million units, and is regarded as the best selling Android tablet at the moment. As reported on Metro, an analyst at IDC noted that gadget lovers may begin to opt for cheaper tablets like Amazon Kindle Fire and the Nook.
The Kindle Fire is a 7″ tablet with dimensions of 7.5×4.7×0.45 inches, and it does not have camera. The device weighs lighter than most of the top tablets in its category. Let’s see some of the reasons people are buying the Amazon Kindle Fire.
Amazon Kindle Fire is Very Affordable:
For the quality of the Kindle Fire, $199 price tag is very cheap; and arguably, the company is selling the device at a slight loss to gain market share.
Debatably, the Kindle Fire is essentially an e-reader. As you would have noticed from the Kindle Fire specs, the Kindle Fire does not have a camera because the device was mainly built for consumption of media.
Integration into Amazon Products:
Obviously, Amazon forayed into the mobile gadgets market to create a dependable channel for selling its vast online retail products to the huge awaiting fans. With the Kindle Fire, fans have seamless access to 19 million movies, TV shows, music, magazines, books as well as major apps and games.
Almost Agitating Hype:
The hype that surrounded the coming of the Kindle Fire still remains a mystery. From the beginning of 2011, rumors have been flying throughout the media, and the fact that Amazon Kindle Fire was expected to compete with the established Apple iPad market – with a much cheaper alternative – was a enigma.
Eventually, the Kindle Fire and the iPad are different in several ways, but the Amazon Kindle Fire has quickly penetrated the US market. Already, some analysts say the Kindle Fire will create more appetite for Apple iPad, while others expect improvement in the Android OS to raise the intrinsic value of Amazon Kindle Fire and the Nook to compete better with Apple iPad.
In the end, one question largely hovers on the threshold of many minds – is Amazon actually poised to end the dominance of Apple in the tablet market?
