Amazon Kindle Fires And Paperwhite e-book Reader Launched to Challenge iPads, Nexus 7 And B

 

Not to be outdone, CNET report states that “The Amazon Kindle Fire HD will bump up against the iPad Retina in the very exclusive ultra-high-resolution tablet club.”

According to the report, the newly launched Kindle Fire HD with a 1920 x 1200 resolution, giving it a PPI of 254, almost matches with the Retina Display of Apple New iPad which boasts a 9.7-inch display along with a 2048 x 1536 pixel density and 264 pixels per inch (PPI).

The new Fire HD's display includes additional goodies too like a "laminated" touch sensor that "makes it thinner and improves the responsiveness of touch," added the report. Hence, Amazon new Kindle Fire HDs might prove to become a good substitute to Apple iPads.

At the same time, the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD would directly compete with the Nexus 7, and the newly launched Paperwhite e-reader with a lighted screen has been obiviously launched by Amazon to match the likes of the innovation introduced by Barnes & Noble’s new Nooks lately.

Hence, with three Kindle Fire tablets released, the big giants in the tablet market may have a tough challenge in 2012. At the same time, consumers may have a hard time choosing from the tablet storm hitting the market this year. So does Google and B&N actually have something to worry about now, specially Apple as far as its dominance in the tablet market is concerned?
