I have one client that’s pondering the choice between the Amazon Kindle fire and the Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet. After giving him the details for both I was surprised to see him side with the Nook Tablet because of it’s better hardware specs. Last month we were told that details like “dual-core” and X.XGHZ speeds don’t count anymore. They said what counts is the attractive envirnment that comes with the devices.
Well I guess this person missed all of that since they opted to begin purchasing something that performs better than the Kindle Fire. How should Amazon respond? With better software of course. In about two weeks the Amazon Kindle Fire is slated to get an Over-The-Air software update that promises to fix the complaints we hear in the forums.
Do you own the Fire? Are you mad that there isn’t an external volume button? Sadly that can’t be easily fixed but what can be fixed is the audio enhancement. We haven’t heard what will come in this second update but believe me, they have been listening to you. If you have further software complaints, let us know in the comments and later we’ll compare together what Amazon got right and what they still missed the boat on.
Few details were offered, but the Times said the improvements will affect overall performance and multitouch capabilities. Also, users will be able to edit a list of recent actions, including Web sites visited, the newspaper said.
