Kindle Fire – a replacement for eInk Kindles?

Posted in: ,

Great news! Kindle Fire has just been unveiled. You can even preoder it at for $199.

We’ve finally got a tablet on the market which can compete with Apple iPad. At least in popularity. With a 7-inch display, the Fire is about half the size of the iPad. And it’s also less than half the price of the cheapest Apple tablet. For my taste that will be an ideal candidate for a sofa web browsing :)

But what about traditional Kindles? I hope Amazon will continue enhancing them too… after all, Fire is just another tablet, with a screen which stresses the eyes, and therefore can’t be a replacement for our old-fashioned eInk-powered Kindles.
