Amazon’s second-generation Kindle has a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and looks a lot like the first-generation model Amazon first released in 2011. But the Kindle Fire 2 has a faster 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and runs newer software, based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

While Amazon normally charges $159 and up for the Kindle Fire 2, today you can pick up a refurbished model from All4Cellular for just $100. The retailer is offering an even lower price for first-generation Kindle Fire tablets.

  1. The BB PlayBook has this resolution too (1024×600 @ 170 ppi) and it’s just fine to browse the web…some people must get paid to complain…

  2. ” Kindle has a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display”

    According to the reader of the prior post, “you can’t even browse the Web comfortably” with that resolution.

    I guess there are a lot of uncomfortable people out there.

    1. I have a 1st gen Fire, and I agree that it’s not terribly comfortable for web browsing. Nearly everything has to be viewed in landscape mode, otherwise the text is so small that it’s too pixelated to read without zooming. Even in landscape, some websites are just fine, some are usable but annoying, and some require so much zooming and panning that it’s just not worth the trouble. When I tried a friend’s Nexus 7, the bump in resolution was just enough to alleviate most of these issues, and I could even view a lot of sites in portrait mode, which was really nice. I’m talking about the non-mobile version of websites here, though. The mobile versions are all fine in portrait mode, but that’s not my definition of “web-browsing”.

      1. Yeah, I am thankful for being able to reflow text from webpages using my Opera browser on my 5 inch Samsung Galaxy player.. Also, I use an RSS reader that formats the text for me using the instapaper service, so I don´t need to visit too many websites.
