Just recently, Amazon unveiled what many are referring to as “the perfect alternative to iPad”, the Kindle Fire. This full color 7″ multi-touch display tablet allow users to play movies, games, apps and read books for $199 – that’s $300 less than the iPad.

I’m not about to put my opinion out on the table until I’m able to use this new tablet but I must say it’s looking pretty darn good. However, we’ll have to wait until it’s release on November 15, 2011 to see if it lives up to all the speculation and current reviews.

Here are just a few quick specs some of you may be interested in knowing:

  • Display: 7″ multi-tough with IPSĀ  anti-reflective treatment. 1024 x 600 resolution / 169 ppi / 16 million colors
  • Weight: 14.6 ounces
  • Storage: 8GB
  • Battery Life: Up to 8 hours read or 7.5 hours video playback
  • Has USB Port, auto jack and has a 1-year limited warranty
