Kindle Fire Development Essentials

The Kindle Fire is the latest addition to Amazon.com’s Kindle family of devices. Unlike previous Kindle models, however, the Kindle Fire is the first device from Amazon to move beyond ebook reading and provide a full tablet experience with a multitouch color screen and the ability to watch movies, read books and magazines, play music and install applications from the Amazon App Store. Whilst the rest of this book will cover the development of applications for the Kindle Fire, this chapter will take some time to look at both the history and technical specifications of this device.
