Amazon unveils Kindle Fire, new e-readers
-Hi, I'm Bridget Carey with CNET TV here at the New York amazon press conference where not only that Amazon just announced a whole new whole new line of E-Ink readers, we also got a look at he Amazon Tablet.
-It's called Kindle Fire.
-The color 7-inch tablet that is at really low price point, $200.
It's big difference from the Barnes and Noble Nook which is $40 more.
-Kindle Touch 3G, Kindle Touch, and Kindle.
-When it comes to E-Ink readers, Amazon really dropped their prices.
Not only is a non-touch version now available $79, but there is also one touchscreen for $99, also much cheaper than the Barnes and Noble version of its Nook touch.
Amazon also has 3G version of its new touchscreen E-Ink reader.
It's $150 and they are gonna be available for holiday,
but the one that you can order now and shift now is the non-touch version for $79.
Amazon also unveiled a few new features that are important to the new Kindle Fire tablets.
You're looking at Whispersync that not only does books, but also automatically syncs the kind of movies, TV shows.
So, essentially, you could take, as you're watching on your tablet, stop it and play back on your TV and amazon says that worrying about back in a few data is the thing of the past.
Everything that you download
is gonna be stored in their Amazon cloud to be accessed anytime and delete it from the hard drive space anytime, but that hard drive is only 8 gigabytes.
Of course, that's why they're really pushing that amazon cloud.
So, essentially, you have all the space you want in the cloud to store things.
-And Amazon introduced a new mobile browser to its Kindle Fire.
It's called Amazon Silk and it's supposed to make things really a lot faster to load than traditional mobile browser.
Not only are these
New Kindles a lot smaller, a lot lighter, but they are also a lot cheaper expecting to be a big holiday seller.
For CNET TV in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
