Kindle Fire: With Android Market, with 1-click root and video against iPad 2

He Kindle Fire he has the honor or rather and I venture to say, that he will have the honor of undoing the ipad and be the fashion tablet of the moment, especially this Christmas, and it will be for many reasons:

By number of sales they are making, which is breaking all records and forcing Amazon to accelerate its production, by price, which discards competitors, by business model too, because it offers exclusivities and a closed content model on an open system how is Android and precisely because of Android and that Amazon allows certain flexibilities for people to do what they want with their device, so much so that it can be rooted, you can download the source code of the version of the system you have done Amazon and you can also install the Android Market to enjoy not only the apps from the Amazon App Store, that is, a powerful hardware, virtually unlimited in software for a competitive price. Without a doubt, a bombshell.
