Amazon Fire is a low end device launched a few years ago, counting with an enormous 7" multi touch capacitive screen, a fast processing unit clocking at 1300 MHz, and 2 cameras, a 2 mega-pixels back side camera and a 0.3 megapixels front facing camera. Great! That's it? No, it's just the introduction of this in-depth review.

The Amazon Fire is only 7.52" long and 4.53 inches wide, but it's able to fit a a 7 inches display. This cellphone's thickness of 0.42" is a bit far from current standards, but it still feels comfortable in the hand. Amazon made this phoneavailable just in black color. Amazon did an excellent design job making this cellphone weight only 11.04 ounces.

This cellphone is equipped with a interesting 1024 x 600 7-inches screen, which makes everything look quite good. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

Amazon ships this device with a good 1300 MHz processor with 1 GB of RAM memory. A good point of this phone is its big 8 GB internal storage memory and an SD card slot, enough to install hundreds of apps and games without running out of space.

The Amazon Fire is equipped with two cameras, a 2 MP back facing camera and a 0.3 mega-pixels front facing camera. It can also film 1280x720 HD videos. Additionally, the camera counts with geo tagging.

This cellphone doesn't have a sim card, because it doesn't support GSM connections.

The Amazon Fire also comes with Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth cellphones and accessories), and Accelerometer.

The Amazon Fire might be a bit overpriced considering it is sold for $ 100, while many similar devices are being sold cheaper than that. The Amazon Fire is sold with Quick Start Guide, USB 2.0 cable and 5W power adapter.
