The Kindle Fire isn’t any old eReader, it’s the first color tablet device from Amazon’s Kindle line, with a multi-touch interface and the ability with watch movies, TV shows, play games, and of course read newspapers, books, magazines and more!
So let’s take a look at what’s in the newest eReader. While it’s not out yet, this is what we do know.
- It uses a USB 2.0 micro-B connector cable, much like our 5 pin micro B connectors.
- The sounds comes from top-mounted stereo speakers, and you can hook in headphones using a 3.5 mm stereo audio jack.
