Well, if you don’t already own the most popular Android tablet so far, learn that the Kindle Fire is available for a mere $129, courtesy of Amazon’s Cyber Monday Deals.
As you probably know the Amazon changed the game on the tablet market in November 2011, when the Kindle Fire was released. After its market debut, the Kindle Fire quickly climbed to the top of the Android tablet segment in just one quarter, and judging by its price and specs there is no surprise.
At that time the Amazon Kindle Fire had hig-end specifications for a price of only $199, which was a premiere for the 7-inch tablet market. Now, other companies were inspired by the successful recipe of the Kindle Fire and wanted to penetrate the 7-inch tablet market, so Google launched the Nexus 7, while Apple launched the not-so-affordable iPad Mini.
In late 2011, for $199 you were receiving a 7-inch tablet packing IPS TFT display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The Kindle Fire is motorized by a dual-core TI OMAP 4430 at 1 GHz, has 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage expandable using Amazon’s cloud storage service.
When the Kindle Fire HD saw the light of day in September 2012, the first-gen Kindle Fire received an upgrade and a price cut off to $159. The new Kindle Fire (now priced $129) sports a dual-core 1.2 GHz and 1 GB of RAM instead of 512 MB.
Kindle Fire is underpinned by Google’s open source Android OS, but the software engineers at Amazon took their time to develop an new, interesting user interface.
