Kindle Fire and the Way to Enjoy DVD on It

The Kindle Fire, which has a color 7-inch multi-touch display with IPS technology and runs a forked version of Android operating system, is a tablet computer version of  Kindle e-book reader developed by Amazon. The device including access to the Amazon Appstore, streaming movies and TV shows, and Kindle’s e-books has been released already.

The Kindle Fire retails much cheaper than Apple iPad. Analysts have projected that it would be a strong competitor to Apple iPad, and that other Android device makers will suffer sales lost. Amazon’s business strategy is to make money on the sales of digital content on the Fire, rather than depending on the device itself. The external dimensions of Kindle Fire are 7.5×4.7×0.45 inch (190×120×11 mm), and the visible area of the screen is a little smaller than a standard 4×6″ photograph. The following is some detailed information about Kindle Fire.

The device includes 8 GB internal storage which is said to be enough for 80 applications, plus either10 movies or 800 songs or 6,000 books. Approximately 6.5GB of the 8GB internal storage is available for content.According to the list of technical details of Amazon, the 4400 mAh battery in Kindle Fire can sustain up to 8 hours ofconsecutive reading and up to 7.5 hours of video playback with wireless off.

2. Software
The Kindle Fire runs a customized Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. Along with access to Amazon Appstore, it includes a cloud-accelerated “split browser”, Amazon Silk, using Amazon EC2 for off-device cloud computation; including webpage layout and rendering, and Google SPDY protocol for faster webpage content transmission. User’s Amazon digital content is given free storage in Amazon Cloud’s web-storage platform, 5GB Music storage in Amazon Cloud Drive, and a built-in email application allows webmail (Gmail, Yahoo!, Hotmail, AOL Mail, etc.) to be merged into one inbox. The subscription-based Amazon Prime, which includes unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows, is available with a free trial period. The Kindle Fire has always made some developments.
