Kindle 3.4 update! and the all-new Kindle Family

You must know by now that the Kindle Family has been updated, but my beloved Kindle Keyboard is still available. So naturally, it will get a small update (version 3.4) to support Whispersync for Voice and maybe more. You can read this thread for more information. And don’t forget to check out the new Kindle Paperwhite (sounds like paperweight, huh?) that features built-in light. Bear in mind that the Paperwhite drops audio support, so no audiobook.

The Kindle Fire also gets a spec bump and a price drop. It nows costs only $159. However, it just got big brothers: Fire HD 7″ and Fire HD 8.9″, prices start at $199 and $299 respectively. Seriously, it’s a steal compared to other Android tablets out there. Though I’m a little disappointed that the Fire OS is based on Android 4.0, not 4.1. You can pre-order them right now.

The New Kindle Fire

Welcome to Kindle VS Mac ! This is the first post EVER ! ! For the hype of the just-introduced Kindle Touch and Kindle Fire. I, like many gadget lovers out there, am excited about these new Kindle and couldn’t help to start doing a bit of research and compare its usability to my Kindle 3 (now “Kindle Keyboard“). So, I’d like to share my opinions about these new stuff from Amazon.

Let’s start of with the long-awaited Fire…

Fire vs. iPad?

Kindle Fire is announced with really a low price tag. Compared to many tablets out there, I personally think it’s a great choice for someone who want a tablet but does not *need* an iPad. Remember that these tablets are Post-PC devices, as long as they let you surf the webs, listen to music, watch movies, read books, go on facebook and other social networking, they do the job. Also, Amazon’s ecosystem is strong, may or may not be stronger than Apple’s, but it’s strong enough to make Kindle Fire sales soar up sharply after it becomes available.
