The new Kindle Fire by Amazon looks to be great and absolutely fantastic for the price. The Kindle Fire features WiFi-based web browsing, media playback, many Android apps and portable reading. The screen resolution is comparable to the iPad’s but squeezed into a slightly smaller form factor which results in a smaller but sharper image. Many users will actually enjoy the added portability of the smaller size. The approximate 16:9 (height:width) screen aspect ratio of the device is slightly less square than the iPad’s 4:3 or iPhone’s 3:2. It will be interesting to try one in person.

For the person who wants everything and seamless integration with Mac products, the iPad is a great choice. For anyone content without Apple integration, the Kindle Fire is a similar product for much less.

Kindle for iPhone

We were a little underwhelmed yet again with the release of the Kindle 2 last week. While Amazon’s e-book reading device is light years behind the iPhone it still sports a hefty $400 price tag. Low and behold, Amazon has just announced that it is releasing an iPhone app which will allow you to read e-books (downloaded from on your iphone. While this is obviously not going to replace a good paperback anytime soon, it is nice to have something entertaining to read when you suddenly find yourself having to wait around (doctors office, DMV, etc) with nothing to read.
