Ok, cutting the snark seriously. Ever since I read this article about the Kindle Fire, my views on tablets have softened a bit.
|Check out that Sexy Beast (and I'm not referring to the X-Men character Beast who isn't even in this shot).|
There's another service I'd like to be able to use on the go as well: Netflix. My smartphone is too old to use the new Android app. My netbook wasn't designed be Netlfix friendly (it's the screen resolution).
There's one special feature though that really appeals to me and if you've been following my blog you know what that is. The price! When the Kindle Fire first hit the market, it was intentionally sold at a break even/loss price because Amazon had hopes that the content available to the device would pay for it. Well, it has. In spades.
Now for my dilemma. The bug is itching me now but the tablet market is really ready to blow up right now (in a good way). Take this report that Google is ready to enter the fray. Even if that's down the line, ASUS working on a $250 quad-core tablet gives me some incentive to wait.
What do you guys think? Anyone out there a Kindle Fire user? I'll see how much longer I can contain myself until I learn a bit more.
