Finally, Amazon Kindle Fire (KF) joins crowded tablet market!

Since Apple launched new category of devices- iPad (AI) in April 2010, nearly 30 million iPads have been sold and it accounted for 80 percent of the 7.5 million tablet shipments in North America in the second quarter of this year, according to Strategy Analytics.

Besides, other IT giants also launched their own tablet in the earlier time, e.g. Samsung Galaxy Tab (SGT), HP Touchpad, Blackberry Playbook, Motorola Xoom, Sony S/P, and Archos 9.

Why Kindle Fire is a MUST buy tablet? Top 5 reasons have been listed out below.

Top 5 Reasons To Buy Kindle Fire

Reason 1- Smaller and Lighter!

With dimension 7.5" x 4.7" x 0.45", the size of KF is smaller than AI and SGT! Easy to hold it in one hand, cool right? Besides, its weight is only 413 grams, much more lighter than AI (601 grams) and SGT (565 grams), you may bring it and travel around without extra burden!

Reason 2- Economic but fully functioned tablet

What is the price of KF? It is only cost you $199 to have a tablet which has similar functions as AI and SGT!

Reason 3- Millions of book are waiting for you

More than 1 million books are available in the Kindle Store, including 800,000 titles at $9.99 or less. In addition, over 2 million FREE, out-of-copyright, pre-1923 books are also available.

Reason 4- Free Cloud Storage 8 GB of on-device storage just not enough for you? No worries! You may stream and download books, movies, music and apps in the Amazon Cloud for FREE!

Reason 5- Extra durable displayThe display of KF has been chemically strengthened by 20 times stiffer and also 30 timers harder than plastic! So you do not need to worry to accidental bumps and scrapes!

Your comments would be appreciated!
