Today Amazon announced their new $199 Kindle Fire tablet along with the new Kindle for only $79 and the new Kindle Touch for either $99 or $149 (depending on 3G connectivity).

The Kindle Fire is a 7″ tablet powered by a highly modified version of Android that seems more like a Kindle with extra features and a slick UI than an actual Android tablet. Kindle Fire Users will be able to access the Amazon App Store, Prime Instant video, Amazon MP3, the Kindle Bookstore and Amazon’s cloud storage.

Here’s the Kindle Fire TV commercial:

Instead of describing all of the Kindle Fire’s features, I decided to embed a screenshot taken from Amazon’s site (you might need to zoom in, if so, use control and + for PC or command and + for Mac):

The Kindle Fire will be released on November 15th, stay tuned for more news related to Amazon’s upcoming tablet!
