Connecting Emerging Technology to Brands & Consumers
With all the excitement about Kindle Fire, businesses rush to get their foot in the door.
What is the Kindle Fire?
Kindle Fire is a tablet computer released by Amazon. The Fire features a full color 7-inch display with multi-touch, it enables web browsing through Amazon Silk, and the purchase of books, movies, TV shows and games. Applications are purchased through the Amazon AppStore. If you’re an Amazon Prime customer, you will be able to instantly stream movies through Amazon Fire.The Fire competes directly with Apple’s iPad, but undercuts it on price: The Fire costs $199, versus the iPad at $499.
Examples of other apps available on this tablet:
Real Estate apps like Trulia and Zillow have joined this platform, so if you’re looking to purchase property, or just to rent you’ll have more devices to do this from.
I use most of the abovementioned apps, but to be honest with you, I’d probably only get this tablet because of the price. There’s just something about the iPad/Apple. Status? Or maybe just great customer service?
With more tablets entering the market, will this help to bring down the prices? Sure.
