World’s Cheapest Tablet – Amazon Kindle Fire only for $199

Amazon has launched its new Tablet today, called Amazon Kindle Fire, and it is the world’s cheapest tablet. It costs just $199. While it certainly isn’t as good as Apple’s iPad, it is not that expensive either. It serves the basic purpose, and we think that is more than adequate for a lot many users.

Specifications

The tablet has a 7-inch display with 16 million colors. This too, like the iPad, has an IPS panel, which means good view from any angle. As far as the resolution is concerned, it’s 169 pixels per inch, which is better than iPad that has 132 pixels per inch. Even with Gorilla glass and rubberized rear, it weighs only 14.6 ounce. Amazon Kindle Fire has a dual core CPU, and also supports Wi-Fi.

However, the tablet many be a disappointment for some, as it does not have microphone or camera. This rules out the facility of videoconferencing or 3G on this device. However, it’s 8GB memory and cloud capabilities make it a strong contender in the saturated market of tablets.

Should you go for it? Well, it’s your call. With such an extensive online store, cloud services and the content it provides, it will offer almost everything that Apple offer on its online store. This means it’s a decent combination of commerce, content and cloud computing at a very low price, making it one of the most desirable tablets of the year.

However, only after using it will we know whether it is a must-have gadget or just another tablet.

For those you haven’t yet heard about it, here is another good news. Amazon’s black and white Kindle now costs just $79. Gift as many as you want this Christmas.
