Kindle Fire discount price: Lowest price for Amazon’s newest e-reader

Looking for the best discount price on the Kindle Fire? You are definitely not the only one interested. Ever since Amazon dropped a bombshell with an ad when it introduced the new tablet, everyone is interested in its new product and where they can get the best price.

Amazon not only lowered the price of the original Kindle, but added the new Kindle Touch and, of course, the Kindle Fire. The introduction of the newest member of the Kindle family brings all kinds of fresh new competition to the e-reader and tablet market, and here’s why.

The iPad has been the market for tablets. No other tablet from any other manufacturer has been able to break into the consumer market. Part of the problem has been perceived value for cost. Consumers are not fully aware of the Android platform in part because it has been fragmented and rebranded. So Amazon’s new tablet has the advantage of being billed as a Kindle by Amazon, not an Android tablet, and it’s $300 cheaper than the iPad. This essentially makes it an affordable iPad competitor.

The direct competitor to Amazon’s Kindle Fire is Barnes and Noble’s Nook Color. The Nook Color has been on the market and available to consumers for some time now. The natural progression of the competition would only make sense for Amazon to release some sort of Kindle Color. Consumers have been asking where the Kindle Color is for some time. However, by being late to the game, Amazon had to make an impact. That impact was through price, hardware and the market.

This device works as an electronic reader and a tablet. Amazon’s Kindle is branded as an electronic reader, or e-reader. The iPad as an e-reader never really gained much ground. It was too expensive as an electronic reader. But this model has hardware that is as powerful as the iPad. You also have access to the Amazon App Store. These two reasons, combined with the very low price of $200, will make it a strong competitor to the iPad.

The Kindle Fire also has a lot going for it as a competitor. We’ll see:

  • Low price point: The Kindle Fire is just $199. That’s $50 less than the Nook Color and $300 less than the cheapest iPad.
  • 8Gb storage: The Kindle Fire has 8 GB of storage. 6Gb is usable for the user. That’s a lot of apps, music, and books. However, movies can fill that space a bit quickly.
  • Unlimited Rear Storage: Amazon Cloud is a free service for Kindle Fire. All your books, music, movies, and even apps can be stored in the Amazon Cloud. You won’t be able to stream books and apps, but once you’re done with them, you can store them in the Amazon Cloud. However, music and movies can be streamed, which will free up a lot of space.
  • Whisper Sync: Whisper Sync is an interesting feature for those who use it. Whisper Sync syncs book and magazine information across all Kindle devices, including smartphones with the app. Whisper Sync now works with movies and TV shows on Amazon Prime so you can seamlessly switch from Fire to TV.
  • Amazon silk: Amazon Silk is a revolutionary new mobile browser with lightning speed.
  • Full access to the Amazon marketplace: The Amazon marketplace is the largest digital library of books and magazines. The App Store is growing in size every day and is almost as big as Google’s Android Market. The Amazon Prime library already contains thousands of TV shows and movies, and it’s growing.
  • Hardware: It features a high-resolution capacitive touchscreen, 8Gb internal storage, a dual-core processor, and a fast graphics processor that rivals that of the iPad and surpasses the Nook Color by generations.

The Amazon Kindle Fire blog will keep track of not only the latest news, but also discounts and special offers so you can get your Kindle at the best price. The Kindle Fire will launch on November 15, 2011. Orders are now being taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
