Today Amazon Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos introduced the world to his new Kindle Fire color tablet which uses the Amazon Silk web browser. This new innovation in technology uses the Amazon EC2 Cloud service to host applications and data in the Amazon Cloud which saves on storage space on the tablet itself.
Kindle Fire brings everything we’ve been working on at Amazon for 15 years together into a single, fully-integrated experience for customers – instant access to Amazon’s massive selection of digital content, a vibrant color IPS touchscreen with extra-wide viewing angle, a 14.6 ounce design that’s easy to hold with one hand, a state-of-the-art dual core processor, free storage in the Amazon Cloud, and an ultra-fast mobile browser – Amazon Silk – available exclusively on Kindle Fire.
I have been using Amazon S3 services for over 3 years to host audio and video files for my websites and for my clients. I love what Amazon has provided to me… low cost storage and high availability with high speed streaming of audio and video files. I look forward to giving the new Kindle Fire tablet a try this Fall when it becomes available. Heck, for under $200 it is a super deal. Thanks Mr. Bezos, good move.
