Comixology On The Amazon Fire

As pointed out by The Beat – The new Amazon Tablet has been unveiled today and the biggie that sprang out was a Comixology app!

This morning, as we all expected, Amazon has announced a new tablet to compete with the iPad, the $199 Kindle Fire, a 7-inch tablet with:

instant access to Amazon’s massive selection of digital content, a vibrant color IPS touchscreen with extra-wide viewing angle, a 14.6 ounce design that’s easy to hold with one hand, a state-of-the-art dual core processor, free storage in the Amazon Cloud, and an ultra-fast mobile browser – Amazon Silk – available exclusively on Kindle Fire.


They also made the regular Kindle even cheaper at $79 and a Kindle Touch at $99 — $149 for 3G.

And comics are definitely part of the equation. ComiXology’s logo can be seen in the lower right of the debut graphic, and comiXology tweeted a confirmation:

Yes, that was our logo in the app screen on the Kindle Fire.

Other graphics released by Amazon make it clear that comics are a big part of the equation.

What was it we just said the other day? “The iPad is currently an expensive gadget for upscale households, but the iPod was once the same thing. Now it’s a has-been.” Cheap tablets are going to make everything happen faster.

Oh yeah, one more screenshot:
