You may also use your home Wi-Fi network to browse the Internet with your smartphone or tablet.
But there’s another device that’s great to use with your high-speed Internet home network, and that device was in the news this morning.
It’s Amazon’s Kindle Fire (which lets you browse the Web whenever you’re connected to Wi-Fi).
So, why is the Kindle Fire in the news today?
Because Amazon announced earlier this morning that the Kindle Fire:
- is the most successful product launch in Amazon.com’s history
- has earned over 10,000 5-star reviews
- has been the #1 best-selling product on Amazon.com since it was introduced about 9 months ago
- has captured 22% of tablet sales in the U.S.
- is now sold out
That’s right: sold out. As in, no more Kindle Fire. Forever.
But don’t fret if you’ve been putting off buying one.
Amazon is holding a press event in Los Angeles next Thursday, September 6, and there are lots of rumors about Amazon announcing a new line of Kindle Fires.
PCWorld.com has a list of 5 things that would make the new Kindle Fire a big hit.
