3 Other reasons to consider the Amazon Kindle Fire

Released Over Four Years Ago

This tablet computer has been on the market for over four years.

Average Screen Size

The Kindle Fire has a relatively standard screen size (7 inches) compared to most of the other tablets of this spec and age.

Tablet computers with a larger screen size that might also be worth considering include the Ematic EGD078[plb_2479190_price] (7.9"), or the bq Curie 2[plb_2165331_price] (8") which also has a higher rating.

Average Internal Storage Capacity

At 8 gigabytes, the Kindle Fire has a pretty typical internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared all the other 8GB internal storage capacity tablets to this tablet and we think the Huawei MediaPad[plb_1498227_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a tablet computer with a larger internal storage capacity then you might want to look at the LG V500[plb_2625050_price] (16GB) which is also higher rated.
