    During a press event in New York City on Wednesday, Amazon took the wraps off of its $200 Kindle Fire tablet. The Kindle Fire is equipped with a 7-inch display and will have access to all of Amazon’s services including AmazonMP3, Amazon Prime, Amazon Kindle, Amazon Instant Video and the Amazon AppStore. The tablet is powered by a dual-core processor and weighs 14.6 ounces. Customers can pre-order the Kindle Fire today and it will ship in November. Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos also unveiled a brand new version of his company’s popular eReader, dubbed the Kindle touch. The $99 Kindle touch is equipped with an infrared layer on top of the E-Ink display to help avoid with any interference while reading. It also has Amazon’s EasyReach technology for turning pages by tapping the screen in specific areas. In addition, an X-Ray feature allows users to view where and when certain characters or places take place in a book. Amazon will also sell a separate Kindle touch 3G model for $149. Pre-orders for the Kindle touch eReader begin today and will ship by November 21st. Finally, Bezos announced a new standard Kindle for $79 that does not offer a touchscreen. It is available now and will also ship today. We are hoping to bring you hands-on photos with Amazon’s new devices shortly. In the meantime, be sure to keep your browsers pointed to our live coverage of the event. Read on for the full press release from Amazon.

    It'll certainly be interesting. The only tablet selling right now is iPad. Amazon might have the ponies...we'll see.

    Are they making a bigger version of the Fire Tablet? I think the perfect size is about 10". A 7 inch screen just seems like it's not that much bigger than a smart phone screen. If they could keep it around $300 they would have a real winner in my opinion.
