Tablet of seven or 10 inches - which is best?

If employees scream for tablet PCs, and the company's budget is already under pressure, is it is tempting for the CIO to look at the new low-cost tablets hitting the market at the moment.
This applies especially to Amazon's Kindle Fire (and if it doesn’t work it is advisable to call Kindle technical support), which with a price of 199 US dollars (plus   respective customs and tax) cost half of the iPad.

But while Kindle Fire according to the first reviews are a perfectly sensible product considering the price, can a CIO quickly get headaches of trying to implement it in the company.

Missing several core technologies
Among others may be mentioned that the battery life is several hours worse than, for example, the iPad and Samsung's Galaxy Tab, which is not unimportant for business purposes where the whole idea of a tablet is that employees must be mobile.

It also means that it can be problematic, it does not have 3G connectivity or a camera - two things that are a must in many work situations.

Amazon's Silk browser can also pose a challenge. It provides faster load times when surfing because it utilizes the company's cloud-computing power. But this feature has some expressed concern because it raises privacy questions that Amazon has fingers in everything you do.

Amazon, however, even stated that it is possible that this acceleration feature can be disabled.

Tight integration and hard to adapt
eWEEK that has fingers in Kindle Fire, has suggested that the very tight integration with Amazon's services can pose a challenge.

Kindle Fire has just eight gigabytes of memory, part of which goes to the operating system, so it is primarily intended that you have to stream music and movies from Amazon's data center.

But how easy is it to access content when, for example sitting in a flight where no network connection is?

EWeek also writes that the Kindle Fire is not easy to adapt to specific needs.

Kindle Fire can indeed be used both for mail and documents - and it is also possible to download additional apps from Amazon's own app store, such as QuickOffice, but the supply of business apps are not overwhelming, as it is not the regular Android Market, you accesses, but Amazon's own store.

Overall, there is thus a part missing in the Kindle Fire, which makes it - despite the low price - hardly suitable for business use in all companies.
