Amazon Kindle Fire: 10 Reasons It Succeeds in a Crowded Market
Amazon's Kindle Fire has been available since September 2011. But it doesn't always get the kind of attention it deserves.

But the Kindle Fire is still one of the best tablets on the market. From its low-end, 7-inch model to the high-end high-definition version that comes equipped with 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) services and an 8.9-inch display, the Kindle Fire is the kind of tablet with the features and price that appeal to many customers. The Kindle Fire might not be the most popular or most glamorous tablet on the market, but it's designed to perform a well-designed set of tasks and it performs them well. This eWEEK slide show examines the Kindle Fire and why it has won over a lot of tablet buyers in the face of a lot of intense competition. The tablet might not be an iPad, but in some ways, it's even better than Apple's slate. Take a look at the following slides to find out what it is about the Kindle Fire that a lot of users love.
