14. Amazon Kindle Fire

No one knew what to expect from the Amazon tablet. Some thought it would go head-to-head with Apple's iPad while others thought it would simply be a trumped up Kindle. Both parties were right. While not as powerful as other tablets on the market, it's also not as expensive. But the Fire works in providing users with more content than they could hope to consume. Once you're locked into the Amazon eco-system, the Fire is a beautiful experience, allowing you to read, watch, and listen to nearly anything available on the popular website. It has dreaming of what the Fire 2 will bring.
