I'm keeping my hopes low. Maybe it will exceed my expectations. But flooding the market with different variations of the same thing can get boring very quickly.

Well, as far as I know, it runs a customized operating system, named FirefoxOS. At this stage, I haven't collected much more, but I am going to investigate in ;-)

Interesting. I wonder if it'll run Android?

Did you hear about the new comer in the sector ? Mozilla is launching Firefox Smartphone and maybe this is another actor to play against for Windows.

Apps more than anything since I feel like anyone NOT buying the iPad upfront is okay with the different UI.

But both the Amazon Kindle and the Kindle Fire have been successful products. The are aimed at different targets but just by the amount of units sold, there's no question about it.

When you compare a Kindle Fire with an iPad, besides the obvious size difference, there are a ton of other features that are missing but for that price, who will complain?

Regarding MSFT, they are trying to compete directly with the iPad, similar price, same size... the apps and UX should be the key factors.

I agree. But you have to start somewhere.

And they've pumped a ton of marketing $$$ into their efforts so anything is possible.

User experience is really the best for Apple products. Most are just catching up. its a long shot for Windows to replace either Andriod or iOS to capture no 2 spot.

Adding all the iPad-like features helped out a ton. I saw the Kindle and thought it would not last too long. But then the Fire changed the game a little.

They need to sell you an experience, that using that product will make you look cooler, better. But that's not the silver bullet... Amazon's Kindle Fire simply offered a good-enough product at a "rock bottom" price... people who didn't know what to do with an iPad bought the Fire in order to get a sense of what they are meant for.
