On September 28th, 2011 right after it was announced, I pre-ordered the Kindle Fire, Full Color 7″ Multi-touch Display, Wi-Fi. Yes, that’s the new color Kindle. I usually don’t buy something without reading all the reviews and doing some research but since this is a brand new product I wasn’t able to do that. All I could do was watch videos like the one below. And that was enough to convince me that I wanted one.
Don’t get me wrong, I still want an iPad 2 but I don’t have $500 right now. But I did have about $150 in Amazon gift cards so this was a no brainer. Watch the video and make your own decision. When it ships on November 17th, I’ll post a full review of the new Kindle Fire.
This is a video at the Amazon Kindle Fire announcement.
And here’s the TV Commercial
Update 2019: I’ve had the original Kindle Fire for 8 years now and it still works great. The newest more resource hungry apps won’t run well on it but everything else works great. I eventually got that iPad that I was looking for but I still find myself going back to this original Kindle Fire when I’m reading or quickly need to check something on the web. Overall, still very happy with this purchase.
