Kindle Fire

The tablet market is about to get really interesting. And a lot more affordable. The Kindle Fire ($200) is Amazon's answer to the iPad, featuring a one-handable 14.6 ounce design and a 7-inch color touchscreen that's chemically-strengthened (20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic). It's based around a cloud-accelerated Silk web browser, and features free storage in the Amazon Cloud, Whispersync, and a dual-core processor. The Fire has access to over 100,000 movies and TV shows from Amazon Instant Video, over 17,000,000 songs from Amazon MP3, over 1,000,000 Kindle books, and offers compatibility with popular Android apps and games. It ships on November 15.

  • Apple iPad 2

    Steve Jobs made a surprise appearance today to introduce us to the iPad 2 ($500-$829). About 33% thinner than the current iPad (which makes it thinner than the iPhone 4), the all-new iPad features Apple's new dual-core A5 processor for faster everything, as well as a front-facing VGA camera for FaceTime, and a rear-facing camera that captures 720p HD video. It's also got a built-in gyroscope, HDMI video output at 1080p HD ($39 cable required), 10 hours of battery life, and the same 9.7-inch LED-backlit LCD screen. Choose from black or white in 16GB ($500), 32GB ($600), 64GB ($700) sizes. If you want built-in 3G, you'll have to pay a little more — 16GB ($629), 32GB ($729), 64GB ($829). Also announced were iMovie ($5) and GarageBand ($5) for iPad, and a new magnetic Smart Cover ($39-$69).

  • HTC Flyer

    And the parade of new tablets continues. The HTC Flyer ($TBA) runs Android 2.4 with HTC's Sense interface, and packs a seven-inch touchscreen with 1024x600 resolution, a 1.5 GHz processor, 32 GB of internal storage with microSD expansion, 1GB of RAM, HSPA+/GSM cellular connectivity, a five megapixel rear camera with auto focus and a 1.3 megapixel front camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, GPS, and all the mystique and intrigue that comes with being someone who doesn't use an iPad.
