Description

The Amazon Kindle Fire is the first Android-powered tablet released by the online retailer giant. The Kindle Fire was introduced to the public in September 2011 and released on the market in November, the same year.

The Kindle Fire is 190 mm tall, 120 mm wide, 11.4 mm thin and weighs 413 grams. The tablet features a 7-inch IPS LCD display with 600 x 1024 resolution and a pixel density of 170 ppi. The Kindle Fire technical specifications list also includes 8 GB of native storage and 512 MB of RAM. Unlike other 7-inch tablets, the Kindle Fire doesn’t arrive with front-facing or rear-facing cameras.

Amazon’s tablet is underpinned by a TI OMAP 4430 chipset based on two Cortex A9 cores clocked at 1 GHz and PowerVR SGX540 GPU, while being kept alive by a 4,400 mAh battery.

The tablet is compatible with WiFi 802.11 b/g/n standards and it comes pre-loaded with a highly customized version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
