Amazon Reveals The Kindle Fire: A $199 Dagger Aimed Right At The Heart Of Tablet Market

Update: Jeff Bezos just introduced the Amazon Fire, a full color tablet which will radically disrupt the tablet market.
It's priced at $199, and it works with all of Amazon's media services. Any tablet not named iPad, should be worried, even though the Fire is just seven inches large.
(We're about to go play with one, so we'll have a full report on the acual device. The demo looked impressive.)
In addition to the Fire, Amazon lowered the price of the regular Kindle and introduced a Kindle Touch. Read below for our live notes from the event.
