Best gadgets of 2012 – Amazon Kindle Fire
Amazon may not have given the official nod, but its first stab at the crowded Android tablet game could be winging its way to the UK in January… if the rumours are to be believed.

As long as you don't mind living your life in the cloud and compromising a little with Gingerbread 2.1, Amazon's colour tablet may very well be worth waiting for – especially if it's still half the cost of the iPad when it launches. There are high hopes for a January release. We're waiting with bated breath – in the mean time, check out our review of the Kindle Fire.
