    It's cheap. There is absolutely nothing special about it, nothing at all. Hardware wise, it is pretty much exactly the same as B&N's Color Nook, which has been on the market for a year. There are literally hundreds of no-name Android tablets that are also almost exactly the same as the Kindle Fire, for the same price even. The only thing the Kindle Fire has going for it is the Amazon name.

    Huh? The CPU's aren't even the same.

    Name 10 tablets that have a dual core CPU, run Android and are $199... ready, go!

    the fire is superior to the nook color and 20% cheaper.

    It is a neutered RIM Playbook. Nothing special to here, move on.
