Paul Stamatiou on the Kindle Fire:
The original Kindle was purpose-built: create an amazing digital reading experience. The Kindle Fire’s MO seems to be create an okay experience for apps, the web, books, movies, music and of course Angry Birds.
It’s an interesting question that I don’t think any one short of MG Siegler can answer right now: did Amazon integrate the “content consumption” experience well enough to allow consumers to forgive the assumed hit that one takes to readability of the non e-ink screen?
Secondarily, and more to Stamatiou’s point, does the broader focus of the ‘Fire’ make the device poor?
