Concept shows how cool the new Amazon Kindle Fire could be
But Amazon’s tablet remains the one with most content available. The Amazon ecosystem is a great asset for those hungry to consume media on their slates, but while that’s good, there is something about the Fire that’s not all that good. If you thought about its design, you’re right - the generic plastic case just isn’t something that would lure you into buying the Kindle Fire.
Now, with the second generation tablet allegedly coming soon, rumors have started spreading that it will be crafted more carefully, with more attention to details and more solid materials used to build it. Germans from t3n imagine that it could look like what you see in the pictures below - a futuristic mixture of metal casing and slightly curved lines. Now, that’s only a concept that has nothing to do with Amazon itself, but it definitely paints a picture of what we’d like to see in the next Kindle. How do you feel about that design mockup?

Why on earth you want a Windows Phone tablet while you can run full Windows 8 or Windows RT on tablets?

i don't know... i'm not really hyped with the Kindle Fire. I don't like the way they messed with the OS.

Uhh... I saw an Alltel ad right now. Thumbs up if you miss Alltel. :) I hate, yet love Verizon.

It's an appliance, not an artwork. I want something that's easy to use and easy to hold. Forget the shiny metal look, give me a rubberized back and a glare resistant screen.

But they Amazon Kindles....... have no play store and does not behave how an android tablet should be... That is not cool!
Wouldn't it be great if it has all the normal android functions, and google play, but also with the amazon kindle UI?

Or, even a BIG update to Kindle UI with tons more apps than before.

I own the current Kindle Fire and I see nothing "cheap" or bad about it's build. The only thing I might change is something around the front of it so you can hold it without getting fingerprints on the glass. Aside from that, I love the rubberized backing and the solid feel to it. I think my main complaint and something which really needs to be addressed is memory. Considering everything it can do, this device either needs more internal memory or an SD slot. Seems I'm constantly fighting the battle for more memory. I have way to much available for apps and next to nothing available for actual data (music, videos, books, audio books). C'Mon Amazon

People, please try and remember this is NOT supposed to be your typical Android tablet. It's an eReader! In this case, it was deisgned for media consumption - books, music, video, etc. If you're expecting a "normal" Android tablet, you need to go somewhere else. As an eReader, it's just fine, thank you very much,
