At the same price range, which one is the best choice for a tablet under $200 to buy ?, Kindle Fire vs Coby Kyros MID9742-8. Both have differences strong points, while with Kindle Fire, what you’ll get is a portable tablet with a wide 16:9 screen ratio that is perfect for movie watching and ebook reading, and with the size of 7-inch and light weight, you can bring this tablet with you everywhere with around 7 – 8 hours of battery life that is enough for daily use and don’t forget that Kindle Fire comes with a great support from Amazon, you can store all of your digital purchase with Amazon Cloud service for free and also you can enjoy a super fast web browser service “Silk” that use Cloud computing technology. But in contrast, the downside for Kindle Fire is its hardware specification, you cannot use this for photography and video shooting and also video call since it comes with none !, and also Kindle Fire comes with no Bluetooth and also no 3G or 4G only wifi is available and no SD card slot.

In contrast, with the same price range (cheaper than Kindle Fire), Coby Kyros MID9742-8 offers a lot more in term of hardware specification, it comes with a letterbox 4:3 capacitive touch screen (the same type of iPad’s touchscreen technology), with front and rear camera for video call (VGA) and sharing (2 MPS) and also mini HDMI, built-in 8 GB storage space with up to 32 GB via SD Card slot with a bigger screen 9.7-inch, and USB port that you can connect to keyboard dock and its peripherals. And don’t forget the latest Android 4.0 OS that works very fast and very easy to use.
So, if you ask me, in term of specification, Coby Kyros MID9742-8 is definitely a great choice, perhaps a better choice that Kindle Fire ( you can also use Amazon service on this tablet as well for song, movie and ebook buying). The only downside of Coby Kyros MID9742-8 is, it is not designed for portable, if you decided to go with this tablet, it means that you will use this tablet at your home most of the time with sometime portable. So Kindle Fire vs Coby Kyros MID9742-8, which tablet under $200 to buy ? Definitely Coby Kyros MID9742-8 !
With the price of $200, this is the sound of drum from Asus and Google to Amazon. Finally Google released their acclaimed 7-inch Android tablet Nexus 7, the question is, if you are looking for a tablet around $200, should you buy a new comer Nexus 7 or should you buy a popular Kindle Fire ? In term of specification, Nexus 7 comes with HD screen 720P (Fire is less) and a front camera for video chat. You may use this to take a photo of yourself or your daily activity but it won’t as good as a dual-camera tablet, but in contrast Kindle Fire offers none on camera.

While Kindle Fire runs on its unique OS that adapted from Android 2.3 OS, Nexus 7 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the one that google has been developing. In term of functionality, the HD screen is very easy on your eyes, you don’t need to zoom in as many times as you use Kindle Fire since the screen is crisper. The only feature that I believe Kindle Fire is still a better choice is its Amazon support, because Fire is a tablet that design to be an Amazon digital media consumption tablet, so it is easy to buy to store songs, movies, apps, that is a strong suit of Amazon, but with Nexus 7 you may need to have a little bit of technology knowledge to install app from Google app market and find the right apps. Think carefully.

If not why bother buy a tablet that cheap but comes with limitation.

Amazon Kindle fire this is a $200 habitus that you need to break your pocket, is a need to give you good tablet for great affordable price, some over design ! already applications the software all that good sustenance on Fire, dual core process of 512 MB of ram, so if you wanted to store a lot of things on your device itself, is nothing beats out for you, because only have about 6 GB, the overall design of it is pretty nice, it does look a lot like the BlackBerry playbook, I was not a bad thing, and all it is a 7 inch screen as resolution of 10 24 x 600 and effacement comfortable in your hand, it doesn’t feel cheap at all.

The certified refurbished Kindle Fire has gone for Mother’s day 2012, but you’ll get the 30% off for cover instead !
Finally the certified refurbished Kindle Fire deal has gone from Kindle Fire’s official page and I could not find it on a price listing page either ! I think a certified refurbished has gone for Mother’s day ! (perhaps it is out of stock or Amazon want you to buy a new one instead of a refurbished one),
Click here for the full detail of 30% off Kindle Fire cover deals for Mother’s day 2012 @ Amazon (limited time)
but Amazon decides to offers this deal instead, with the new Mother’s day Fire purchase, you can buy a selected Fire covers with the 30% off, that in my opinion, is not so tempting since the price of cover is around 50 USD (the highest ones) so what you will get is around 15 USD discount for 250 USD price, and I don’t think the cover is necessary since Kindle Fire comes with the Gorilla Glass that is scratch proof. But if you are still buying anyway for your mom, this offer is better than nothing.
Due to the passed big One Day Deal Sale 139 USD, I think the certified refurbished is out of the market ! If you go to the Amazon’s Kindle Fire page at the moment, you will not be able to access to the certified refurbished Kindle Fire from official Kindle Fire page anymore, the link has been removed ! perhaps this could be a temporarily out of stock or Amazon decides to terminated the certified refurbished, but I have tried to find another way to enter to used and refurbished Fire, and I still can see 1 refurbished Fire available at the moment. So, if you want to buy a refurbished ones, you may need to act quickly !
Admitted it without Amazon Prime, Kindle Fire is nothing, it comes with an outdated Android OS, for Android apps and games, you can play with any Android tablets, as well as Kindle ebook reader app, you can download it and use it on any tablets and it has not to be Kindle Fire, so what is the strong point of Kindle Fire ?
Click here for the full detail of Refurbished Kindle fire on Amazon’s official page, starts from 169 USD (limited time)
In my opinion, a strong point of Kindle Fire is how you can store your purchased media content on Cloud and you can watch it anytime you want (with wifi hotspot needed of course), so I think the only reason that you want to buy Amazon Kindle Fire is to but its digital content and use Kindle Fire as a media consumption tablet especially for music and movie. So if you live overseas and waiting for an international released of Kindle Fire, I think that chance will not come early, don’t forget that, due to a zone limited, you cannot buy or rent movies from a different region. I am one who live overseas and I want to play with Kindle Fire ! This is sad !, (but who knows, Kindle Touch has this issue before and finally Amazon could launch it internationally, perhaps we will get lucky !)
If you are thinking to buy a Kindle Fire, there are three ways to buy it, first, you can buy a new one with 199 USD with one year warranty and 30 days customer satisfaction guarantee that allow you to return Kindle Fire if you don’t like it.
Or you can have the same deal as a new Kindle Fire but with 20 USD cheaper by buy a certified refurbished Kindle Fire, that also comes with a warranty, customer satisfaction guarantee and also a manufacture cleaning and re – packaging or on other hand, you can save your 20 USD on refurbished Kindle Fire without notice that it has been used item. Or you can buy a used Kindle Fire that you may get a cheapest price but also with no guarantee, you can assure that you will have a good condition Kindle Fire, you may can return it if you won’t satisfied with its quality, but it consumes your time on a returning process. So, in my opinion, I think the best option that you can save your money as well as get a good quality Kindle Fire is buy a refurbished one.
Since I am not reside in the U.S., so I cannot buy this Kindle Fire, but as a Kindle fan, I am looking for its reviews when this tablet released, and the shipping date is on November 15, 2011 which is a few days coming, the first wave of reviews from customers will decide the faith of this Amazon’s first tablet,
if it works as good as it advertised, there will be of a big order wave for this end of year coming, and also I believe in a very soon, we will have a chance to see a big wave of Kindle Fire accessories release such as camera kit, bluetooth adaptor, cover and many more, then at the November 21, what you’ll face is Kindle Touch 3G shipping and the tidal wave of video reviews, (again I cannot buy it, I’ve already bought Kindle 4 and I love it !, just waiting for the lighted cover), I think a lot of things will happened at the end of this year,especially with the Kindle DX Graphite !
Have you pre-ordered yet? Only 15 days to go. Amazon Kindle Fire will be arrived. For some who already pre-ordered, be ready to receive after 15 Nov 2011. But for those who have not yet decided whether to pre-ordered or not. You may want to reconsider about it because this is the tablet of the year with the most advance technology so far. Can not think of any reason to buy Kindle fire? How about to buy it as a digital cook book gift either for yourself or for your loved one for this coming Christmas 2011. Give your self a gift is the most rewarding to do.
There are reasons why this Kindle Fire can be a great digital cook book.
1.Ultra-fast web browsing (Amazon Silk), to leverage the speed makes turning pages fast. So when cooking you need to continue reading recipe in order to keep cooking. This will help a lot.
2.Stunning Color Touch screen will enhance the reading and makes your kitchen comes alive. 16 million colours in high resolution magazines or books are better than paper cook books.
3.Kindle cook books are cheaper than hard copy books and you can lean your kindle to someone you want to share too. At the least cost of Kindle is $9.99. So you can buy more and more
4.Audio cook books are available too. Visit Amazon.com to check for these audio books, there is a trail version for you to try before buying. It will level experience of cooking when you have your mentor speak to you.
