So, You Just Purchased an Amazon Kindle Fire. Now What?

  • Mark Rollins

Abstract

Webster’s Dictionary defines the word “Kindle” as to start, cause, or begin burning. I suppose that the obvious upgrade of a device called a Kindle would be Fire. For years, Amazon has dominated the e-book industry, and the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet is quite a leap into a new type of market. Not only did Amazon make a top-of-the-line tablet, but they are selling it at an MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) of $199. By offering a tablet computer at a low price, Amazon is giving its customers the best of both worlds. A report from iSuppli, a leading market research firm, stated that the Kindle Fire actually costs $201.70 to make, which means that Amazon loses an estimated $2.70 for every Kindle Fire sold.
