Know anyone who has a tablet computer? A new study finds the average tablet user spends more time online and more money online too.

Right now only 9-percent of online shoppers own tablets, but more are signing on every day.

That has not gone unnoticed at Amazon. Wednesday the online retailer offered up its new tablet computer the Kindle Fire. It is priced way cheap, just $199.

The Kindle Fire is about half the size of the Apple iPad. Orders are being taken now, but it won't be shipped until November 15.
