Electronic Theatre is today pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Ladbrokes to give one of our lucky readers the chance to win a brand new Kindle Fire. In celebration of their brilliant online poker games, which can be found here, Ladbrokes want you to be one of the first to own this brand new gadget, which is already reporting record sales, and see for yourself whether it lives up to the hype.
With the release of the iPad Mini in the near future, as well as competition from the Google Nexus 7, Amazon has stepped up their game for the new Kindle Fire. The original Kindles were fairly simple gadgets designed to fill a particular niche, and although there was no denying that they were popular with book lovers, their appeal was often eclipsed by other devices with a variety of capabilities. The new Kindle Fire, however, is a multimedia tablet which offers ultra-fast web browsing and email as well as integrated support for Facebook, Twitter and Gmail. There’s also the opportunity to watch movies and TV shows, listen to music and enjoy tens of thousands of apps and videogames.
Although the Kindle Fire marks Amazon’s move towards tablet computers, they haven’t completely abandoned their roots as the creators of the perfect e-reader. The new 7 inch colour screen allows users to enjoy glossy, full-colour layouts of their favourite newspapers and magazines, as well as offering them an impressive range of books to download. Those of you with an Amazon Prime membership will also benefit from the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library, where you can borrow books for free.
