10 reasons to like Amazon Kindle Fire

1. Price, Price, Price – Kindle Fire costs 40% of the Apple’s iPad 2 while accomplishing most of the tasks that iPad does and it also improves on some of the tasks that iPad 2 does. Keep reading.

2. The smaller 7 inch size has found overwhelming good response from reviews. It fits into pocket, is less liable to be fallen off your grabs and provides ample reading space. Just compare carrying a more portable small sizeĀ  over over a big size text book.

3. Buying any e-book, music or movie is just a click away. When the Kindle fire arrives, it already has your login information – so you do not have to waste time.Purchasing from Amazon App store is straightforward.

4. Amazon’s Silk Browser is fast and intuitive. Most websites load faster using the wifi. Few reported problems has been traced down to the wifi source being used.

5. The touchpad is amazingly responsive – better than many other tablets and touchpads available in the market. It is based upon capacitive touchscreen technology – so you dont have to press hard at it.

6. One of the great aspect of the Kindle Fire is its amazing sound quality, which Amazon has been been able to integrate even while keeping the size slim.

7. On the top of all the advantages, if you do not like it – you can just “unlock” the Kindle fire and use the latest Android software – the operation is that simple.

8. While the storage in the Kindle Fire is only 8 Giga Bytes, you have the access to the storage using Amazon Cloud, which is better as you never fear of loosing data.

9. It does come with a USB connector, that you can use to transfer files, music and data to and from computer. iPad 2, for example does not come with a USB connector.

10. Again the Price. The $300 extra that you pay is not worth – these $300 adds only a camera ( that you are never likely to use) makes the Kindle bulkier and does not add any value. Use the $300 to buy something more useful.

Expected sale of Kindle Fire is being reported to cross 5 million in 4th quarter of 2011.

2. Android based smartphone operating system received praise from technical community. It is technically better, is open source and has multiple vendors.

3. Windows 8 Operating system may simply outshine Apple as the de facto Operating system in smartphones and tablets.It will have universal support for the drivers and will make transfer between Windows based machines and Tablets easy.

4. In the 4th Quarter of 2011, there have been reports that manufacturers are slowing down the production of iPad 2.

5. iPhone 4S has several issues including battery life. Once the initial euphoria around Siri hype is down, people realize that it is nothing more than a toy to show off.

6. Apple missed the Wall Street expectation in Q3 of 2011.

7. Apple is facing serious lawsuit from Motorola. Motorola won an injunction against Apple in Germany and Apple may be forced to stop sale of its systems in Germany.

8. Samsung has serious allegation against Apple for its patent violation.
