Amazon has added Hulu Plus and ESPN to its already impressive list of applications which already includes Netflix, Rhapsody, Pandora, Facebook and Twitter. The Amazon Kindle Fire also ships with a 30-day trial of Amazon's movie and TV streaming service, and access to popular games from Zynga, EA, Gameloft, PopCap and Rovio. If that's not enough, there are also Comics by comiXology, and 18 million movies, TV shows, songs, magazines, and books to choose from.
A recent survey conducted by Retrevo revealed that 44% of new tablet buyers are considering buying the Kindle Fire this holiday season. Retrevo believes people are choosing the Fire over the aging iPad 2 because of its low cost and size. Amazon is expected to move around 3 to 5 million tablets in Q4 of this year.
