Amazon’s $199 Kindle Fire arrived in the hands of early adopters this week, and we were among those who preordered following the announcement seven weeks ago. Now that it’s safely arrived in our hands, we’ve started poking, prodding and yes, tapping the Kindle Fire to give MacLife.com readers a quick look at this new budget-conscious, seven-inch Android-based tablet.
The tech press has been whipped up into a frenzy over the Kindle Fire, which many bill as Amazon’s “iPad killer.” After months of rumors about its very existence, CEO Jeff Bezos finally took to the stage in late September to confirm the Kindle Fire was indeed real. This week, the tablet finally arrived in the hands of eager early adopters, on its way to even more consumers this holiday season thanks to the bargain-basement price of only $199.
