I've heard about "rooting" devices but I'm not certain why I'd want to do this -- I'm a bit nervous about fiddling the software. What do you miss out on if you don't root it? Isn't there still plenty you can do with it as is?
I haven't rooted mine cuz I dont need it xD
But I know its very easy, several guides on google.
I rooted my phone cuz I wanted free hot spot
It depends, if you are happy with the apps in the amazon store, then you wont need rooting at all. I just use mine for using the web browser and reading books I download from torrents, lol.
Does this have a slot for SD/microSD card? If so, can we run Android off that storage (like Nook)?
No, there is no card slot, just the basic tablet.
As for those talking about rooting it, depends what your needs are. There are far more apps nowadays than there were when I first got mine (day it came out).
Are there other choices out there, you bet. My 6 yr old niece has been using mine since I got it and found it intuitive. Great for kids and there are ways to lock things down, although I haven't had to do that (yet).
Did a bit of research, noticed that this kindle does NOT have any hardware volume keys. It is going be about $100 after tax anyways, and i got two HP touchpad running andriod. I will wait for a better tablet. Thanks OP
