The device's specs is very scarce but you can go to the same link above where you will be able to pre-order the device for Amazon's list of it's technical specs. But of course, I will be mentioning some of it here.

The Kindle Fire is running on Android. Seriously, it does run on Android but Amazon has heavily customized the OS that it ultimately looked like it does not run on Android. It also sports a 7" IPS (1024x600) touchscreen display, 8GB of internal storage, WiFi, 3.5mm headset jack, and a microUSB 2.0 port are just the specs disclosed by Amazon.
