Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet

On September 28, 2011 in New York City, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos revealed a new line of Kindles. The most important was the Fire, a one pound tablet with a seven inch screen that sells for $199. It has no speaker or microphone but has a special browser called Silk that allows users to easily download content off Amazon’s cloud. It would be an interesting device for people who already have a cheap cell phone. It uses WiFi so you don’t need an expensive monthly data plan. It would be even cheaper if you never bought any content from Amazon but surfed for free content instead. Oh, you can download Android apps. That should make Google happy.

Despite all of this, I still don’t want one. I don’t want an Apple iPad either. I want a cheaper and faster network to run any device on.
