It was released in the USA on November 14, 2011.

includes 8 GB of internal storage — said to be
enough for 80
applications, plus either 10 movies or 800 songs or 6,000 books.

mAh battery sustains up to 8 hours of
consecutive reading and up to 7.5 hours of video playback with wireless

2.3 Gingerbread OS.

cloud computation; including webpage layout and rendering, and Google's
SPDY protocol for faster webpage content transmission.

Fire’s user interface has been specifically designed to be
very intuitive and easy to use. You might think that when device has a
touch screen, it is automatically easy to use. But not every mobile
device implements touch screen input functionality as well as the rest.
The Kindle Fire, however, is a great example of a touch screen user
interface done the right way.
Fire’s powerful dual core processor no doubt helps a great
deal in making the touch screen interface very smooth. All you have to
do is tap & drag. Everybody can effortlessly navigate his or
her way through the Fire’s user interface. The whole world is
at your fingertips. All your recently played music titles, all your
recently watched movies, all your recently accessed games &
apps… everything is always within reach.

OS and Content
The Kindle Fire packs a dual-core, 1GHz TI OMAP4 processor and runs a
very highly customized version of Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread).
Home page access includes Newsstand, Books, Music, Video, Docs,
Apps, and Web. Most of the rest of the home screen
is devoted to a Cover Flow-like carousel of your most recently used
content, with four user-assignable favorites at the bottom.
Each of the seven sections gives you a virtual "bookshelf" of items
stored on your Fire along with a link to Amazon's relevant store. Yes,
this tablet is designed to make you buy stuff from Amazon. You don't
have to—you can load your own files—but it's very,

Most people are familiar with Kindle books, which read and sync well on
the Fire. There are some new kinds of content in
the bookstore for Amazon too, like color childrens books, for example.
But they show up in landscape format.
The Music option lets you stream songs from your Amazon Cloud Drive or
play files stored on the device. To get them onto your tablet, you can
buy them from the Amazon MP3 store, or drag and drop or sync them from
your PC. The Kindle Fire comes with free, unlimited cloud storage for
anything you buy from Amazon. You can store non-Amazon files, too, but
you only get 5GB; upgrading to 20GB costs $20 per year.
That cloud storage is very important. With only 6.5GB of free, onboard
storage, you can only store three or four movies and some choice
playlists on the tablet at a time. Everything else resides in the cloud
locker, and you swap items in and out when you need more room.
Video lets you rent, buy or download movies or TV shows, or play Amazon
Prime's subscription streaming video service. Docs lets you view
documents you've sent to the Kindle's dedicated email address. Apps
shows the apps you've downloaded from Amazon's app store or sideloaded
onto the tablet, and Web loads the Silk browser.
The Kindle Fire handles MP3, AAC, and OGG
music, including album art. For video, it plays H.264 and MPEG4 only,
at resolutions up to 1080p. There's no Bluetooth stereo support, HDMI
out, or way to connect the Kindle to a TV; Amazon would rather you play
its cloud content through an Amazon-enabled set-top box like a TiVo.
