This week, Amazon released the Kindle Fire and the Kindle Touch as part of a new wave of toys for the tech-savvy. The Kindle Fire is Amazon’s first attempt to take on the tablet market, which has so far been dominated by Apple’s iPad. Amazon’s Fire is smaller and thinner than the iPad, making it great for staying entertained on the go but less practical for accomplishing work outside of the office. While it’s not quite as functional as the iPad, the Fire does have one main advantage: its price starts at $199, well below any other tablet currently on the market.
