Found On The Web – Amazon Announces New Android Tablet The Kindle Fire

Ok… so… a $199/Β£130(?) 7″ Android-based tablet with unlimited streaming from Amazon’s cloud really is cool news. Suddenly the iPad seems really expensive. I can see a lot of people wanting one for Christmas! The Silk browser sounds interesting too. Altogether I’m still not sure that I need a tablet but this one might be the best of the bunch so far.

Found On The Web – New Amazon Kindle Fire tablet said to be slower version of RIM’s PlayBook

I give it ten minutes before there is a news headline entitled “New Amazon Tablet Lacks Fire”… you can’t go around using names like “Fire” when you’re trying to save money on components, surely “Fire” should be the high-end version? Still – it’ll be nice to see an iPad competitor that actually has a chance to compete.
