Amazon Kindle Fire: Visual Tour

Take a closer look at Amazon's $199 Kindle Fire tablet, as unveiled Wednesday by CEO Jeff Bezos. One clear goal: Steal millions of hearts--and dollars--from Apple.

Based on what we saw at the launch event, the unit feels solid. The Gorilla Glass screen promises scratch and breakage resistance. Amazon says the display is "chemically strengthened to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic...which means it will stand up to accidental bumps and scrapes."

Yes, I forgot, no sdcard, 8gb, no 3G, no camera. Taps was already played before it was even released. I wonder who does the thinking for these people. Dumb and dumber!

re: Amazon Kindle Fire: Visual Tour
I am disappointed. I was holding out, waiting for Amazon to deliver something truly amazing. A 7" device with no 3G, no camera and ok battery life just doesn't do it for me. I think I will be moving forward with an iPad.
