Kindle Fire Review – Amazon’s First Tablet

Amazon Kindle Fire Review

The Kindle Fire is a very important tablet as it marks Amazon’s first foray into a colour media tablet PC. Amazon have a huge range of digital content available so it immediately has a great library to support it. So how does it match up to the competition?

Below you’ll find a video review showing you the hardware and the different content that’s available on the Kindle Fire.

The media content covers Newsstand magazines, Books, Music, Video (films and TV programmes), Docs, Apps and Web browsing.

It’s clear the Amazon Kindle Fire is designed to allow you to get at the huge range of Amazon digital media. It’s a true consumption device. This is slightly different from other tablet PCs that also have a focus on creating as well as consuming.

That said, it’s cheap at $199 and has a great range of available media in the Amazon eco-system. It’s also extremely easy to use.

Watch the video below to get more of a flavour about the capabilities of the Kindle Fire tablet.

    Can you put music on it from your computer?

  7. [..YouTube..] @GadgetJen85 thanks for the question. Yes you can, you need to buy a micro-USB connector to link it to a USB port on your PC. You can then transfer personal content (including music) on to the Kindle Fire using the Kindle Fire drive on your computer. However, this isn’t stored to your Cloud storage with Amazon so you’d need to manage the internal storage constraints – there’s 8GB build-in memory. Hope this of use.

    I just want to stress out that Kindle fire is not an iPad killer but it’s a great alternative if you have a tight budget. I read a lot of reviews about this device and surprisingly, a lot of people are saying that it’s much better than iPad. I tried this gadget a couple of days ago and web browsing is fast and is very comparable to the iPad 2. Also, the touch screen is highly responsive and scrolling works very fast compared to HP Touchpad. The only disadvantage is the location of the power button. It should have been on the top rather than the bottom.

    • Hi John, thanks for the comment and I totally agree with you. The Kindle Fire is a low cost tablet and is not as feature-rich as an iPad. It offers very good value at the price but if you’re looking for an all-singing all-dancing tablet then the iPad or premium Android tablets offer more.

  11. [..YouTube..] how do you listen to music and go on other websites at the same time?

  13. [..YouTube..] @Sllefty98 thanks for the question. If you’re listening to music via an app that you’ve downloaded then you may be able to exit that app and start surfing the web without losing the music. However, the Kindle Fire doesn’t support multitasking currently so this really depends on the app and doesn’t apply to the music player that’s supplied with the Kindle Fire for Amazon content.

  16. [..YouTube..] can you store photos and your own music to the cloud and delete it off the kindle

  18. [..YouTube..] @Philbeale1 thanks for the question. I haven’t got my Kindle Fire anymore so can’t double check this but my understanding was that you can load your own music into the Cloud on the Kindle Fire and access it from the Kindle Fire via Wi-Fi.

  21. [..YouTube..] Question. I am in a location where there is no Wi FI service. Does the Kindle Fire have the standard usb port that I can plug a broadband attachment and get on to the internet?

  23. [..YouTube..] @garyabbott56 thanks for the question. Unfortunately not it’s a Wi-Fi only tablet with no options for expanding to pick up a 3G network.

  29. [..YouTube..] @tabletpcuk no

  30. [..YouTube..] @Jadeluvs2dance thanks for the update. Have you tried speaking with Amazon on this or looked through the Kindle Fire forums on the Amazon site? They’re usually pretty helpful to get these things sorted out.

    does it come with the apps like facebook or games

    How’s 8 gb oversized? The original iPhone, that, and the 16GB iPads can hold VERY LITTLE data. Wait a few more years and the storage capacities of them catch up to real PCs and once you watch a video from around this year saying you can free over 2 GB of memory and you’ll be just fine, you’ll be laughing sooooo hard at it you’ll just wet your pants.
