Jeff Bezos launches the new Amazon Kindle Fire tablet computer

Amazon has unveiled a colour tablet computer called the Kindle Fire.

The $199 (£130) device will run a modified version of Google's Android operating system.

Until now, the company has limited itself to making black and white e-readers, designed for reading books and magazines.
