I’m actually very impressed by this new browser, I guess they are trying to compete with all the tablets out there. I don’t know how user friendly it is, but the price is very interesting!

Personally, I own the kindle 3G with keyboard and I like it, but the new Kindle Fire is down right amazing, has any of you seen it? Bought it?

I’d really like to know what you think!

  1. None of the others tempted me b/c I really love my current kindle with the keyboard. I mean I really actually use the keyboard and I'm not to into the touch screen stuff especially for an ebook.

    But the Kindle Fire I like. I've wanted a tablet for a while, I've been waiting for Amazon to make a tablet. I wanted a 10in. but ARRRGHHH! Only selling 7 in. now. BUt I can't contain my excitment and wait for the 10 in. Preordered the Fire already! =DDDDD

  7. Anything that makes ereaders more commercially viable is okay by me! I'll probably be sticking with my Sony ereader and iPad, but I have lots of friends who love their Kindles.

  9. I don't have a kindle..yet. But I couldn't resist the Fire. I like the idea of a small tablet. It might be a limited as far as tablets go but it would be prefect for my needs, especially if I can figure out how get my google reader on it for my blogs. And you can't beat the price
