Goodness gracious, great balls of fire!
Been to Amazon’s website today? Well you should. And Apple should be afraid. Very afraid. Amazon has just announced, in a very diplomatic and appealing manner, the release of not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR new Kindle models! And ALL of them are under $200! Take that stupidly overpriced iPad!
I have been
admiring coveting the iPad from the sidelines since it came out but I cannot justify spending $500 on one. I have been seriously considering it more and more lately though simply for travel purposes. Especially since we are taking a trip to Thailand soon and I cannot bear to think about sitting through an 18 hour flight without one! So from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU Amazon, for fulfilling all my tablet wishes. I am the new, proud owner of the newest Kindle model – the Kindle Fire!
In addition to instant access to books, movies, TV, music and games, the Fire also features Amazon Silk – a revolutionary, cloud-accelerated web browser that uses a “split browser” architecture to leverage the computing speed and power of the Amazon Web Services cloud. In English – that means fast fucking web browsing! And not only that, with Fire you can forget about memory problems, this model gives you free storage for all your digital content in the Amazon Cloud so all your shit is instantly available to stream or download for free, simply at the touch of your finger.
This is my first tablet of any kind – reader included – and I feel giddy with anticipation to get it! Up until now I have been a traditional page-turning, paperback book kind of gal, but hey – when the price is right – you’ve got to do what Bob Barker says (okay, Drew Carey, whatever) … COME ON DOWN! But you’d better hurry, the Fire is on pre-order to ship Nov. 15 and there is a waiting list forming! So go and go now to reserve your copy!
Side note: who already has a Kindle? Do you love it? What is your favorite thing about it? What do I need to know? Spill it!
