Somewhat similar to iCloud from Apple, where you automatically get 5GB of free storage, the Amazon Kindle Fire offers unlimited free cloud storage for anything you buy through the device, so filling up its 8GB of built-in storage isn’t a concern at all. And now that Amazon is fully committed to the digital content arena, that means any books, movies, music, and apps you buy on the Kindle Fire will be stored in the cloud and available for streaming or downloading over wifi. Amazon’s cloud will both provide you a safety net should you lose your stored media, and free up your on-board storage for more good stuff.
With iCloud, your purchased music, apps, books, and TV shows, as well as your Photo Stream, don’t count against your free storage. Since your mail, documents, Camera Roll, account information, settings, and other app data don’t use as much space, you’ll find that 5GB goes a long way.
