Kindle Fire Specificaitons and TV Commercial Spot

With the announcement of the Kindle Fire yesterday, just about every news site in the world is buzzing about it and we've just got hold of the specifications for the new 7 inch slate from Amazon:

  • 7 inch IPS 1024×600 resolution display with 169 PPI
  • 7.5″ x 4.7″ x 0.45″ (190 mm x 120 mm x 11.4 mm) at 14.6 ounces (413 grams)
  • dual-core processor (possibly OMAP TI)
  • 8GB of internal storage
  • Up to 8 hours of continuous reading or 7.5 hours of video playback (charges in four hours and can be charged using a USB port on your PC)
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi
  • microUSB 2.o
  • 3.5mm headphone jack and top-mounted external speakers

Do take note that the Kindle Fire does not have any microphone built in or a dedicated camera since the device was designed to be an e-reader first, tablet second. Specification wise it looks very good on paper and at that lovely $199 price - its simply hard to beat especially coming from Amazon. Also check out the TV commercial below:

We've also received bad news that the Kindle Fire will only be made available in the US only and not the rest of the world, not even UK or Canada. I guess Amazon is expecting a lot of buyers from the US to buy the Kindle Fire to the point it sells out. Hopefully this will be temporarily and that Amazon would open the sales to the rest of the world. At $199, it'll be a sellout for sure.
