Amazon announced their new Kindle Fire tablet last week and has the industry salivating on getting their hands on one. Fox News is reporting that Amazon has sold over 95,000 tablets on the first day of the pre-orders.
Amazon is redefining the tablet space with a $199 device that should set the bar for mid-range tablets, but this one is specifically designed for reading and media.
The Kindle Fire has a 7 inch Gorilla Glass display with a resolution of 1024×600 pixels. It has a capacitive multi-touch display with IR, which means it is very responsive. It is powered by a TI OMAP4 dual-core processor and has 8 GB of internal memory.
Pre-Orders are still available to USA residents only and neither this model or the Touch editions are not available internationally.
