Since the tablet craze kicked off, and eReaders gained popularity, the Kindle has established itself as one of the front-running eReaders of choice. Plenty of tablet-toting readers still own devices like the Nook, KOBO, Sony Reader, BeBook and beyond, but updates to the Kindle continue to take the stage.
On September 28, Amazon.com announced the release of the Kindle Fire tablet — Amazon’s true competitive product to the Apple iPad. According to Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, the device will begin shipping November 21, 2011. In addition to the announcement of the Kindle Fire ($199), Bezos announced a Kindle Touch ($99), as well as a non-touch Kindle for $79.
