Kindle Fire Announced And Priced


It seems like every time I buy something new, in a week it is outdated and something better has hit the scene. This includes the Kindle, as I recently purchased one for my wife. Now, she enjoys the convenience of the Kindle and the ease of use, but of course Amazon has just announced the Kindle Fire. And if I would have held out a little longer, I probably would have picked up the Kindle Fire for her, and below are some of the reasons why.
