Listen I have an iPad and I paid $500.00 for from the Apple store nearby. Another teacher has the iPad 2 and she paid $600.00 for it. I planned to get another tablet and I think this is the one. Damn I had Amazon stock and Apple stock and sold them both. I could kick myself. Who knew?
The Kindle Fire will sell for $199, will run a modified version of Google’s Android operating system, will feature a 7-inch display and will be deeply integrated with Amazon’s cloud storage system and its massive online content library of books, music and more. According to AllThingsD’s live blog of the event, pre-orders open for the Fire on September 28; devices will ship November 15.
