Was busy and totally missed out following the Amazon event today. But this is great, like others I am also very impressed with Amazon, truly commoditizing the Tablet market and all this with nice packaging (groundbreaking $49.99 one year 4G LTE data package). I have never touched (or even seen) a Fire tablet so it remains to be seen how this compares to iPad but at the price point Amazon has published, I am sure I will see one very soon around me.
And very sorry to say, like others, I am in awe of how well Amazon has learnt from Apple of launching new products with new products, demos, hands on for journalists and availability dates unlike Nokia/Microsoft's Nokia new phones launch.
