Anyone just catch the announcement about the new Kindle Fires? Unless Microsoft actually does screw their partners, I think the Surface just unfortunately got killed!
If you missed the specs:
Kindle Fire HD
- 8.9-inch 1920x1200
- OMAP 4470
- Dual WiFi with MIMO
- crazy screen tech for use in light and glare reduction
- gimmicky stuff for voice and all that
4G LTE Kindle Fire HD - Same as above, except:
- $49.99 ANNUAL access charge with 250MB/month through AT&T (which won't last long, but hey, it's $50/year, and it should cover basic email and web as long as you use WiFi wisely)
I still want a Surface, but can MS cannibalize its partner relations?
