For those who have recently purchased the brand new Kindle Fire, you may have noticed a lack of proper hardware and software features on the tablet. While the price is dramatically lower than most Android powered tablets or the iPad, it is being criticized by techies as a second-rate piece of equipment. While most non-technical users will find their Kindle Fire to be an excellent distraction, they may be carrying the stigma of a novelty gift more than an actual tool capable of performing powerful functions.
According to CNN, Amazon is hoping to release an operating system upgrade that will fix some of the major issues facing the Kindle Fire. The update will fix some of the problems related to the responsiveness and speed of the touchscreen, as well as give users greater control over the interface. Because the tablet doesn’t feature many external buttons, this upgrade needs to come as soon as possible.
