Amazon Kindle Fire, do not call it Android tablet.

September 28, 2011

Amazon introduces Kindle Fire, a new class of Kindle with color touchscreen.

Don’t call it an Android tablet, though.

Q: How many times does the word “Android” appear on Amazon’s Kindle Fire page?

A: Once, in the following sentence: “Additional email apps are available in our Amazon Appstore for Android.” It’s a Kindle tablet, not an Android tablet.

Amazon Kindle Fire is priced at $199 and will be released on November 15th, 2011.

“Orders are prioritized on a first come, first served basis.”

Amazon Kindle Fire also comes with one month of Amazon Prime, which includes video streaming and free two-day shipping.


How would Amazon Kindle Fire compete with other tablets? The $199 price point is quite attractive. Amazon Prime customers would certainly enjoy the video streaming.
