Amazon has today unveiled the Kindle Fire, its long-awaited touchscreen computer which experts believe could challenge Apple’s dominance.
And if you look at the images they’ve put out for their launch, you can see that they’re featuring The Hunger Games and Catching Fire!
The Kindle Fire runs on Google’s Android software and costs only $US199 – the cheapest iPads retail at $US499 – and will let users download books, magazines, newspapers, videos and music.
It will have access to apps through Amazon’s Android store and, unlike the iPad, doesn’t need to be backed up on a PC. Instead, it backs up its contents wirelessly on Amazon’s servers.
Amazon also showed off a new line of Kindle e-readers: the Kindle Touch has a black-and-white screen and will cost $US99; the non-touchscreen Kindle will cost $79.
All models, including the Kindle Fire, will go on sale in November but users outside America will have to wait.
