Amazon is on Fire!

That is reportedly the name of the new tablet, kindle Fire

Hardware wise it's the same as the playbook from RIM.

Just another tablet. Might as well be the "Kindle Burnout." Really- fire? I thought that electronic devices were supposed to at least have a descriptor, if not be called an adjective.

Droid Incredible
*Galaxy* Tab
Xoom (I guess that's a noun- sort of)

etc.

In case of emergency, I guess you could always use your wii to put out the fire.

It's the 7" screen that I think sucks.

As far as I'm concerned it should be called the "Kindle misFire".

I agree w/ GDGT, http://gdgt.com/discuss/the-amazon-t...ically-is-g8d/, that this 1st Tablet by Amazon might be sub-par.

To me, the tablet will not be worth even $200; integration w/ Amazon services might be worth $200 - $250, If You Use These Services Alot (like watching movies, etc.).

I also don't like how this is heavily a cloud (which means a city/urban) device. No card slot, no gps, no this, no that, etc. Just a portal into Amazon.....................oh boy!

I would wait until tomorrow's announcement before getting too opinionated about whatever Amazon announces. I still don't trust these blogs to know their own names much less have super-secret insight into Amazon's plans.

Ok, I agree; but here is what I know now, for sure:

1.) It's a 7" tablet; for me, I'm more looking/or would buy, a 10" Amazon tablet; 7" is just too small for video, etc.

2.) No GPS or SD card slot. These have always been on my "must have" list for a tablet.

3.) No Android marketplace.

I wonder if it's going to launch internationally... maybe depending on US preorders they might have a few remaining...
