Buying a case for any tablet is a challenge. Tastes vary greatly, and trying to find one that fits your taste can be daunting. When my wife first got her Kindle Fire , one of the first things we had to do was find a case for it. Technically you really don’t need a case for any portable device, but the thought of our device getting scuffed up just doesn’t seem right; granted most cases won’t help in a bad fall, but at least you get some protection from the standard wear and tear of throwing your device into your back or around the house.
Amazon has announced their new Android Tablet, the Kindle Fire. For those uninitiated, it’s the follow up to their Kindle e-reader tablet, which has seen quite a bit of success in the e-book landscape. This new color tablet offers more than just reading books though, this tablet is a bridge to all the services Amazon has developed to date. In the palm of your hand is a device that connects to Amazon’s EC2 Cloud storage, their Android App Store, and their music and video store. So, what’s my take on it? Is it the iPad killer some folks in the shadows have been murmuring about?
