Tablet PCs have become the must-have holiday gift; here's a rundown of the hottest options for your holiday shopping
Amazon Kindle Fire
Amazon's Kindle Fire is sure to grab lots of attention this holiday season. First and foremost, the Kindle Fire is an e-reader, but it's also a full-fledged tablet computer powered by a customized version of Google's Android mobile OS. Its direct link into Amazon's media library, with tons of music, movies, TV shows, books and more, makes it an entertainment powerhouse. And it's reasonably priced. (Unfortunately, you don't get access to Google's Android Market app store.)
Tech Specs: Dual-core processor; unique, Amazon version of Android 2.3 OS with Amazon Silk Web browser; 7", 1024x600 display; 7.5 to 8 hours of battery life, depending on usage; and free online "cloud" storage for all Amazon content.
Price: Wi-Fi only: 8GB, $199.00.
