: Why did I pick the Kindle Fire? It's simple, really. A $200 7" tablet computer that will take up much less space in my travel knapsack than my 10" iPad or Motorola XOOM, and gives me access to all my Kindle books and other Amazon content, not to mention many thousands of Android applications -- likely rivaling Google's own Android market by the middle of 2012. And with Amazon's curated Appstore for Android, you can be assured that all the software submitted to their own version of a "Walled Garden" will run perfectly on the device. There's no doubt in my mind this is going to be the hottest stocking stuffer for 2011.
Note: Although the Kindle Fire won't be available until the second week in November, Amazon.com is taking prep-orders now - from U.S. customers only.
