A version of the Amazon Kindle that has tablet-like capabilities such as full-color internet (wi-fi,) apps like Netflix, hulu, pandora, twitter, and temple run, you can upload music or buy it via amazonMP3, and cloud storage. Pretty cheap at $200, it's great for reading and okay for a tablet. But, it's awkward (which for a kindle is disappointing) and not very user-friendly. If you're looking for a tablet, skip it and get an iPad. You can read on that little shit too.
Just finished The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo on my kindle fire, gonna put on some beatles and check my facebook with my neighbors un-password-protected wifi.
A device with a striped down version of Android that is only useful if you install a different launcher and root its settings to your liking.
Its basicly a $200 Tablet with no camera or microphone, and with the layout amazon wants locked in. It also has about 2% of the apps that you could get from google play availible on its own appstore (you can't get anything from the google play website).
If you like having all the latest apps and being able to get updates at all, this is not the device for you!
Noob: Hey! I just got a kindle fire! And I'm gonna install minecraft pocket edition, skype, and the urban dictionary app!
Previous buyer: Do you know how to sideload or root?
Noob: what's that?
Previous buyer: well than good luck getting those apps!
