Amazon’s New Tablets

Those rumored Amazon tablets have just been officially unveiled! And boy is it some news. Not only will they be selling a 7 inch android based tablet called Kindle Fire, akin to the Nook Color for just $199, but also they will be selling a 7 inch Touchscreen equiped Kindle for $79(!) or a 3g variant for $149

Oh, did I mention that the touchscreen kindle at $79 will ship… Today!?

And this is only the beginning. More and more content is being unveiled as the press event continues. Hold on to your hats, because this looks like it is going to be a wild ride.

About - I am just a college student, attending university in the hopes of drilling teeth one day. I got A+ certified at the age of 14 and have been fixing computers ever since. I have a wonderful wife who also web develops, so my apartment is perhaps one of the nerdiest places you can imagine (I have the periodic table shower curtain to prove it too).

    Edit: sorry, the new buttoned version will come out today at 79. The newer wifi and touch version at 99. 149 for the touch 3g variant, and 199 for the 7 inch dual core processor, Android wielding Kindle Fire.

    Oh, and it looks like from the pictures that the Kindle Fire will have only one button: Power. Anything else that your heart desires will have to be done using menus in the UI.
