Amazon Should Offer More Services on the Kindle Fire 2
5. A new design The Kindle Fire comes with a design that can about match all of last years products. But with the Surface showing off a unique new design and the Nexus 7 looking awfully attractive, its time Amazon comes up with something a bit more future-focused and appealing.
6. More powerful componentsFollowing that, Amazon cant lose sight of the importance of the devices internal components. From a quad-core processor to vastly improved graphics, the Kindle Fire 2 will need to be able to match its competitors on power in order to hang tough in the tablet space. 7. Choices One of the things Google and Barnes & Noble arent doing is offering consumers enough choice in their selection of tablets. Amazon can change that. The company can offer the aforementioned larger screen, as well as a smaller version to compete directly with the Nexus 7. Choice matters. 8. Amazons smart advertising strategy One thing Amazon must continue to do with its Kindle Fire 2 is engage in its smart advertising strategy. The company used the popularity of Amazon.com to promote its tablet to everyone who visited. The move prompted huge sales in the fourth quarter. Amazon must follow that strategy again with its next Kindle Fire. 9. An eye on Apple Apple might not be a direct competitor to Amazon at the moment, since theyre targeting two different customers, but that doesnt mean the online retail giant cant watch what the iPad maker is doing. Apple is the trendsetter in the tablet market, and the benchmark by which all other companies are judged. Not to evaluate Apple would be a mistake on Amazons part. 10. More services One of the smartest things Amazon did with its Kindle Fire was to include its many services in the device. This time around, Amazon should offer more services or try to improve its offerings as much as possible. Amazons Web services, like Prime Instant Video and cloud storage, help distance the company from the competition. It cant forget that. Follow Don Reisinger on Twitter by clicking here
