Kindle Fire – Christmas Sleeper Hit?

Kindle Fire

Kindle Fire

I made a pitstop today at Sam's Club and they had a Kindle Fire on display, so I took a few minutes and played around with the demos. I was actually impressed with the speed, the size and the response of the Fire and really for under $200, I think it's a nice alternative to an iPad for people that really don't need all the things an iPad can do.

The Kindle Fire can browse the web and since its content is on the cloud as opposed to the device, it doesn't need a lot of memory.

I think if I were to be looking for a tablet as a gift from my parents, who are both in their 60s, I think the Fire would be the one I would go with. The Fire may be the surprise sleeper hit of Christmas 2011
