8 GB internal ( approximately 6 GB for user content). That’s enough for about 80 apps, plus 10 movies or 800 songs or 6,000 books.
Free Cloud Storage for all Amazon content.
Up to 8 hours of continuous reading or 7.5 hours of video playback, with wireless off. Battery life will vary based on wireless usage, such as web browsing and downloading content.
Connections and Storage
On the bottom of the Kindle Fire is a headphone port ( which will accept external speakers ), micro USB ( for changing file transfer ) and the power button. The Fire doesn’t come with an SD card or card slot as Amazon wants you to get content directly from them. It also reduces the production costs. You can transfer your own content to the device through the USB connection from you own computer. The Kindle Fire comes with 8GB of storage for which can hold up to about 8 downloaded movies, 80 apps, 800 songs or about 6,000 books. You can really become adept to managing your content through Cloud. Books don’t take up as much room, but magazines and movies are a little under 1 GB. Free videos are available through Amazon Prime, but cannot be downloaded only streamed. So unless you buy a movie through Amazon or transfer one of your own, you must be connected through a wi-fi connection in order to watch your movie.
If you have never tried Amazon Cloud you will be very surprised. You get a larger amount of storage at your fingertips, which amounts to 5GB ( which they will probably increase in the near future) of free online storage to store anything that you want, and can access it from anywhere. The Cloud also gives you option of upgrading to a larger storage if you need to. They charge $1.00 for extra gigabyte per year. You can upload a playlist and listen to it on your home computer and then when you get to work you are able to get the work from Fire and continue listening where you left off. Any songs that Amazon Mp3 are automatically stored on the Cloud and don’t contribute to the 5GB of storage space.
Revolutionary Cloud Accelerated ” Split Browser “
Amazon Silk is different in a radical new way. With Silk you can without thinking about it or doing anything explicit, you’re calling on the computing speed and the power of the Amazon Web Services cloud. We have refactored and rebuilt the browser software stack to push pieces of the computation into the AWS cloud. This let Silk do more work more quickly, and all at once. We call this a “split browser” architecture.
Silk browser software resides on both the Kindle Fire and the massive server fleet that comprises the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud ( Amazon EC2) . With each page request Silk dynamically determines a division of labor between the mobile hardware and Amazon EC2( ie which browser sub components run where) that takes into account factors like network conditions,page complexity and the location of any cache content.
Shorter Transit Times
The Amazon EC2 is always connected to the backbone of the internet where round trip latency is 5 milliseconds or less to most web sites rather than the 100 milliseconds that’s typical over the wireless connections. AWS also has relationships with major internet service providers, and many of the sites are hosted on EC2. That means that many web requests will never leave the extended infrastructure of AWS, reducing transit times to only a few milliseconds.
Computing Power in the Cloud
EC2 servers have massive computational power. On EC2, available CPU, storage and available memory can be orders of the magnitudes larger than on mobile devices. Silk uses the power and speed of the EC2 server fleet to retrieve all of the components of a website simultaneously and delivers them to the Kindle Fire in a single fast stream. Transferring computing intensive tasks to EC2 help to conserve your Kindle Fire battery life.
A typical web request begins with the resolving of the domain names associated with the server and establishing a TCP connection to issue the http request. Establishing TCP connections for each request consumes time and resources that slow down traditional browsers. Silk keeps a persistent connection open to the backend server on the AWS cloud so that there is always a connections at the ready to start loading the next page . In addition the Silk backend server keeps persistent connections open to the top sites on the web. The approach further reduces latency that would otherwise result from constantly establishing connections. Further the connection between Silk and the backend infrastructure uses a pipelined,multiplexing protocol that can send all of the content over a single connection.
Traditional browsers must wait to recieve the HTML file in order to begin downloading the other pages assets. Silk is different because it learns these page characteristics automatically by aggregating the results of millions of page loads and maintaining this knowledge on EC2. While other browsers might still be setting up a connection with host server, Silk has already pushed content that it knows is associated with the page to Kindle Fire before it’s site has even instructed the browser where to find it.
Finally, Silk leverages the collaborative filtering techniques and machine learning algorithms Amazon has built over the last 15 years to power features such as ” customers who bought this also bought” . As Silk serves up millions of page views every day, it learns more about the individual sites it render and where users go next. By observing the aggregate traffic patterns on various web sites, it refines it heuristics, allowing the accurate predictions of the next page request. For example Silk might observe that 85 percent of the visitors to a leading new site next click on that site’s top headline. With that knowledge EC2 and Silk together make intelligent decisions about pre-pushing content on the Kindle Fire. As a result the next page that a Kindle Fire customer is likely to visit is already available locally in the device cache enabling instant rendering to the screen.
