This morning I pre-ordered Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet (scheduled to start shipping on November 15th). I already own an ASUS TF101 Eee Pad Transformer which I love; with the Transformer’s keyboard/dock I have both a tablet and a replacement for my netbook. Since I’m very happy with my Transformer, you may be wondering why I ordered the Kindle Fire. I’m sure my wife will be wondering the same thing so here’s my story. Instead of a Webkit browser the Kindle Fire will use “Silk“, an all-new Web browser powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). As a developer, it is important that I have the ability to check my sites using this new browser. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
