“At $199 the Fire is less than half the price of the Apple iPad, which starts at $499.
It is the first tablet from a major company to seriously undercut the iPad in price.” – New York Times
“The Kindle Fire is the tablet you need at the price you’ll be willing to pay.” – Technology Review
“Amazon’s Kindle Fire is likely to be the first successful tablet not sold by Apple, and there
are several good reasons for it: the low price of $199, the convenient, portable size of 7 inches, and a rich catalog of books, movies and music offered through Amazon’s Web-based services.” – Ars Technica
