The Kindle Fire has already made a slight dent in the iPad sales, but it is in more direct competition with the NookColor. It undercuts both of them in price, especially the iPad. So far the reviews have been positive overall with a few suggestions for future updates.
There is a Kindle for everyone regardless of age or preferences. The Kindle Fire will appeal to non readers since it has other purposes besides reading. The best predictions for deals on Black Friday are sales on games and accessories. Amazon has offered a lightning deal on previous generation Kindles before, so that is a possibility as well.
Black Friday is just days away, and there is a vast selection of new gadgets out there waiting to be snatched up. The Kindle Touch and Kindle Fire were released on November 14, and are showing very favorable reviews overall.

Amazon introduced a basic version of the Kindle that is simply named Kindle. This model starts at $79. The Kindle Touch starts at $99, and like the Kindle Keyboard, it comes with four different choices depending on whether you want 3G, Wi-Fi, or special offers. Lastly, the Kindle Fire is a tablet most comparable to the NookColor, and is $199.
There is a Kindle for all ages. The Kindle makes a great stocking stuffer or first Kindle for children. The Kindle Touch is the most bang for the buck with its new touch screen and features. The Kindle Fire reaches out to those who want a multipurpose device. The Kindle Keyboard remains for those who prefer a physical keyboard.
