Conan O'Brien did a bit on the Kindle Fire HD earlier this week, taking a jab at how Amazon is willing to lose out on device profits in order to undercut the iPad. To that end, he mocked up an ad for the Amazon Wendell, who's some dude who will read you e-books and tell you how well you're doing in Angry Birds for a fiver.
We were generally pretty impressed with the devices in our hands-on experiences with the new Amazon devices, pricetags notwithstanding. Conan raises a point though: how low is too low, and what are you willing to sacrifice for affordability? This isn't the first time Conan has made fun of the Kindle Fire, though; do you think he's got a particular bias against Amazon?
If you're thinking of picking one up, a few of the new Kindle Fires went on sale today.
