Amazon Kindle Fire screen tablets


xternally, the 2012 Kindle Fire is absolutely identical to last year’s model. It’s the same black rectangle with rounded edges and a slightly grippy, soft-touch back, with the same 1,024-by-600 LCD. At 7.5 by 4.7 by .45 inches (HWD) and 14.1 ounces, it’s the same size and weight as the previous Kindle Fire and a little smaller than the new $199 Kindle Fire HD. The Power button is still awkwardly placed on the bottom panel, and hardware volume controls are still missing, both of which Amazon corrected on the Kindle Fire HD.
