Kindle Fire ships early – adds Hulu Plus & ESPN apps

Folks looking forward to the new Kindle Fire tablet will be happy to know Hulu Plus and ESPN ScoreCenter have been added to the Fire’s features. And, those who ordered the Kindle Fire will also be happy to know the tablet is shipping today, a day earlier than scheduled. Amazon’s other new Kindle models — The Kindle Touch and Kindle Touch 3G — will ship tomorrow, six days earlier than was scheduled.  Maybe Amazon is looking to get a leg up on Barnes & Noble’s Nook Tablet, which is expected to hit stores this Thursday.

Hulu Plus costs $7.99 per month for access to TV shows and movies with limited advertising. ESPN ScoreCenter is a free downloadable app.

The Kindle Fire provides an affordable entry into the tablet world. The $199 device boasts many of the features more expensive tablets provide, such as checking email, browsing, social integration, watching streaming movies, and running apps.

Apple’s iPad, while first to pioneer the tablet market, still comes in pricey at $499 for their base model. Toshiba’s Thrive starts at $379. Samsung’s 7″ Galaxy Tab starts at $199. Barne’s & Noble’s Nook Tablet is competitive with the Fire with an MSRP of $249.

I told him I know, but you can do anything you dream of My son’s reply I know mama, and I know I’m not alone. . Your book choked me up as a mom because I see his struggle, but his response left me thinking he will rise above this and he will do great. He also left me blubbering! Thank you for this book and how the story is told he heard he could do this thing called life and come out on top.
