    We're proud to announce our newest forum dedicated to the newly launched Amazon Kindle Fire tablet @ FireForum.net!

    Here are the full specs:
    • 7 inch IPS 1024×600 resolution display with 169 PPI
    • 7.5″ x 4.7″ x 0.45″ (190 mm x 120 mm x 11.4 mm) at 14.6 ounces (413 grams)
    • dual-core processor (we’re hearing it’s of the TI OMAP4 variety)
    • 8GB of internal storage
    • Up to 8 hours of continuous reading or 7.5 hours of video playback (charges in four hours and can be charged using a USB port on your PC)
    • 802.11b/g/n WiFi (no ad-hoc support)
    • microUSB 2.o
    • 3.5mm headphone jack and top-mounted external speakers
    Amazon is using a fresh and easy-to-use interface instead of stock Android that ties the device closely to its own large and growing content library of movies, magazines and music.

    You can now pre-order your Amazon Kindle Fire tablet today for just $199!

    Compared to what us early adapters paid for the Xoom $199 seems like flea market prices :p

    No ad-hoc support means you can't turn your laptop into a wireless router and connect the Fire to it. People do this when there is no wireless, they can plug their computer via the Ethernet and then make their laptop a wifi hot spot, this would be an ad-hoc network. Android can't do this natively without some tweaking so it is not surprising.

    hmm...thanks for the explanation. i thought it was the other way around, meaning using the device (i.e. kindle) as the router or internet source (wifi) when you have a computer that doesn't have an internet connection.

    Got one on pre-order :)

    If it is anywhere close to a NOOKcolor, it will be great. Since I'm already "Prime" , combined with Amazon's cloud-stuff I'm sure it will be a killer.

    Can't wait to see these things floating around. Amazon has finally hit the hardware/price sweet spot.

    I'm just waiting for some reviews when it comes out. Then I might get one for the wife since she's not a power user. My 4yr old would love it too. Lol.
