Amazon has unveiled the Kindle Fire, an Android-powered tablet that will retail for $199.
"We're building premium products at non-premium prices," says Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
The specifications are lower than high-end tablets. While the Kindle Fire has a dual-core processor, it lacks many of the other typical features found in a tablet, such as a camera, microphone, and 3G wireless access. It also only has 8 gigabytes of storage space. As such it will likely compete with Barnes & Noble's Nook Color more than Apple's iPad.
It will be available on November 15 and is available for preorder now.
