Topic for 10/30/11 #storyappchat: The Kindle Fire!

Kindle FireAmazon releases the Kindle Fire on November 15–and will most likely disrupt the iPad’s dominance in the tablet computer category.

For creators of children’s interactive ebooks and apps, this promises to be an important new platform. Built on Kindle Format 8 (which replaces Mobi 7) and including HTML5 support, this platform will allow content creators fixed layouts, embedded fonts, scalable vector graphics and many other CSS3 commands (full list available here).

Here’s a related article from The Future Book, a British blog about ebooks and the future of reading.

Let’s discuss what this may mean for those of us who create storybook apps and ebooks during this week’s #storyappchat: TOMORROW night (10/30/11) at 9:00 p.m. ET. Are you as pumped up as I am?
