The Kindle Fire Specifications: Why it is So Much More than an eReader

Let's take a bit of a quick preview look at the new Kindle ebook reader (and much more) being released by Amazon in time for Christmas shopping.

The Kindle Fire is racking up pre-orders at the reported rate of 50,000 a day. If these numbers are accurate then Amazon could sell as many as 2.5 million units by the time the Fire ships.

All this enthusiasm has caused many to predict that this latest Amazon gadget will outpace launch sales of both the Nook Color and the iPad2, but is the new Kindle Fire an eReader or a tablet?

How Does the Kindle Fire Compare to the Nook Color?

One of the criticisms of the Kindle Fire is that it doesn't offer an sd card option for expanding storage capacity making it a seemingly less desirable option to the Nook Color eReader - that is until you consider the 'virtually limitless' storage available through the Amazon Cloud.

In truth, 8GB can store a significant amount of digital book, magazine and newspaper content.

And that's where the Kindle Fire, with its 'limitless storage' capacity and access to video content, begins to blur the line between eReader and tablet.

How Does the Kindle Fire Compare to the iPad2?

The processing speed of the Kindle Fire appears to rival that of the iPad2 as both use dual-core processors; however those who've had an opportunity to witness the Fire in action have noted its 'instantaneous processing power.'

This slight-of-hand is Amazon's innovative approach to handling time-intensive functions on its Cloud servers and then feeding it in one stream to the Kindle Fire.

In addition, Amazon 'learns' from users browsing habits what they're likely to click next, which enables the Amazon Cloud to pre-load the Fire with the information the user is most likely to want.

So is the Kindle Fire an e-Reader or a tablet? A review of the Kindle Fire specifications reveals that in terms of its size and weight, it resembles the Nook Color.

When you consider the Fire's ability to handle a variety of media at nearly 'instantaneous' speeds, it more closely resembles the iPad2.

In terms of price and what you get for the money, nothing touches the Kindle Fire.

In fact, some have called this latest offering by Amazon 'a game changer.'

There is no way that any other basic tablet ebook reader model can pack this much into their gadget.
