Amazon to battle apple ipad with tablet
Amazon took the wraps off its much-anticipated Kindle Fire tablet, heating up the already spiced up tablet war. The iPad dazzles with its high-quality touchscreen, thin frame and its gorgeous interface. Meanwhile, Kindle Fire is more like the cheap date that doesn't have all the bells and whistles but that nevertheless impresses you with its integrated applications and services.
The Amazon's Kindle Fire tablet will be released on November 15 at $ 199 cheaper than the least expensive iPad 2. The tablet features a 7 inch full touch screen, dual core processer, android OS, and the company's new self branded Amazon Silk web browser which is faster than any other web browser. Comparing to Apple iPad, Kindle Fire lacks camera and 3G wireless connectivity. It is expected to pose serious competition to Apple's iPad due to its affordability and customizable apps. Here are some features in Kindle Fire which Apple lacks.
Kindle Fire Runs Flash: The Kindle Fire will indeed support Flash, which helps to watch videos online and makes a great experience.
Flash is much-requested feature for the iPad and iPhone, but Apple has shown little interest in including.
Less Cost: The least expensive iPad 2 without 3G costs around $ 499 and the interesting thing is Kindle Fire costs only $ 199, without 3G.

Lighter: The new black 7.5-inch tablet is an in inch taller than the original Kindle e-reader, and weighs more than twice as much as 5.98 ounces. However, it's still significantly lighter than the hefty iPad 2, which weighs in at around 21.3 ounces.
Fast Browser: The Amazon Kindle Fire comes with a super-fast web-browser called Amazon Silk. It uses a split browser paradigm that leverages Amazon's Elastic Computer Cloud Web services cloud computing software.
Silk lives on both the Kindle Fire and EC2 to boost the Web page processing, using a complex prioritization model to help resolve Web content faster for users.
