I love my original kindle and amazons customer service is amazing. My daughter spilled water on it turned the entire screen green. After a 5 min conversation with customer service they sent me out a new one and it was there in 2 days.
Interested to see what this deal is especially if its on the HD.
To my knowledge, neither the Kindles or the Nexus 7/10 include SD card slots of any variety (standard-size, mini, or micro).
You are correct. As far as stores go, FireHD CAN be rooted and or slightly modded to use Google Play store. One thing the FireHD has over the Nexus 7 is (micro)HDMI output to hook it up to a TV / monitor / projector. If you're a pure hardware spec person, the Nexus 7 is more powerful, but specs aren't everything.
I meant the reading kindles, not the fire or HD's.
My 2 kids have those too, got them on a $49 deal.
They prefer them when just reading, easy to put in a backpack, battery lasts forever, and the place in the book stays in sync with the fire.
If just the categories would sync!
The kindle app on the Fire HD is way better than the regular Android app though. It allows you to change the font, it shows time left in current chapter, the neat Xray feature, and you can follow along with audio books.
Also, you can't watch Amazon Prime Instant Video on Android tablets but you can on the fire.
Yeah, the Kindle for Amazon app isn't very full featured. I have it on three Android tablets and use it a lot, but it isn't the same. The other benefit to owning an actual Kindle is the lending library, 1 free book a month.
Having said all that, I don't own a Kindle tablet and probably never will. But the latest Kindle Fire is a big improvement over the older model.
off topic, but I played with a new B&N Nook HD tablet yesterday and it was pretty sweet. Too many options, and nothing does it all just right. I'll stick with my older tablets until something finally does everything I want for under $250
