Kindle Fire – Amazon’s $199 Android Tablet PC

When Amazon made the announcement that they were entering the tablet PC race with the Android based Kindle Fire, for $199, I was skeptical; however, after seeing the potential that this 7” tablet offers, Amazon may be onto something that could be a game changer. You can take a look at the Kindle Fire [CLICK HERE] and even pre-order one now [CLICK HERE]. The price is right, but will this tablet do everything you need it to do?
