Amazon Kindle Fire is a modest Android device released back in the year 2011, including a pretty big 7-inches touch-screen and a powerful Dual-Core CPU ticking at 1 GHz. But let's get into some more details.

Amazon justmade this tablet in color black. Though the Amazon Kindle Fire only has 7.48" long, it still manages to pack a 7 inches screen. This tablet is very thin and comfortable, although it's not so slim as many other devices nowadays, with a thickness of 0.45 inches. This time, Amazon totally forgot about weight optimization, leaving it live with a weight of 14.57 oz.

This tablet includes a interesting 600 x 1024 7 inches screen, which makes all images and movies look nice. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

This device ships with a quite powerful 1 gigahertz Dual-Core processor, bundled in the TI OMAP4 chip with 512 MB RAM. A good advantage of the Amazon Kindle Fire is its quite large 8 GB internal memory and even though it doesn't include a slot for external memory cards, it is enough to install a couple hundred apps, but it might not be enough if you are fan of the heaviest games currently available or taking tons of photos and videos.

The Amazon Kindle Fire has no cameras at all.

This tablet doesn't have a sim card, because it doesn't support GSM networks.

Amazon is offering this tablet for 99 dollars, which is a very high price for a tablet this level.
