Amazon Fire TV is the game console Jeff Bezos has been working on

After news about the arrival of the Amazon console, in the end it has finally arrived, and looks similar to the design from Tim Cook and its Apple TV in that it connects to our TV and will allow users to enjoy the many files that Jeff Bezos has at our disposal: movies, series ( especially U.S. ) and especially games. Its name is, Amazon Fire TV.

The new device will work with the operating system that Amazon uses for its Kindle Fire tablet, the Fire OS, as you know, it has its own compilation based on Android and is 100 % focused on the buying of digital content through its online store with many limitations if we want to open the system up. What does this mean? Well we can not reproduce content that is not allowed only those that can be received through the platform, in the style of Apple TV.

The Amazon Fire TV hardware has a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 8064 with a 1.7 GHz processor, Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 8 internal storage and can play video in streaming full HD 1,920 × 1,080 pixels resolution without problems.
