Tablets, specs and prices

For the first year of the iPad's existence the cry from the Android crowd was that better specs would kill the iPad – first it was USB ports, then cameras, more storage or Flash.

Yet today I didn't hear anyone even talk about the lack of cameras on the Kindle Fire (it doesn't have any), or whether it supports Flash (it does I hear, though I don't think it was mentioned in the presentation). No, all anyone could talk about was its price.

Of course, sites that will talk about how the Kindle Fire will kill off Apple, but I think those sites have been exposed for their lack of credibility and link bait tactics long ago.

Note: Daring Fireball is pointing to this story that appeared two days ago about the origins of the Kindle Fire – very interesting reading.
