Review For: Amazon Kindle Fire 8GB, Wi-Fi, 7in - Black (New Edition)
Kindle Fire is great for reading ebooks. Everything else might not meet your expectations.

Display is too small for reading magazines; Silk browser is very slow; no Flash; MP3 player is not good even if you install a third-party one - there are no hardware volume buttons. And you have access only to Amazon video. No way to use KF for other videos or use any other video player - none of them work properly.

CONS: Heavy as a brick. There is no microphone, no Bluetooth, and no camera. No direct access to built-in keyboard in other languages. Internal memory very limited. No external memory. Comes with no accessories at all.

PROS: It could be handy for those who are familiar with Android apps and know what they need. Email is convenient, you can use Skype (for messaging only) and you can still use your Fire for a number of home applications even without rooting.

However, in a couple of months other manufacturers will be offering similar products at competitive prices with better hardware and more functions, and Kindle Fire will be collecting dust...

Review For: Amazon Kindle Fire 8GB, Wi-Fi, 7in - Black (New Edition)
Stunning Color Touchscreen

Movies, magazines and children's books come alive on a 7" vibrant color touchscreen that delivers 16 million colors in high resolution. Kindle Fire uses IPS (in-plane switching) technology - similar technology to that used on the iPad - for an extra-wide viewing angle, perfect for sharing your screen with others.

Beautifully Simple and Easy to Use

Designed from the ground up, Kindle Fire's simple, intuitive interface puts the content you love at your fingertips - spin effortlessly through your recent titles and websites straight from the home screen. Whether you are in the mood to watch, read, listen, play or browse, you can get to all your favorite content with a single touch. It's that simple.

Fast Dual-Core Processor

Kindle Fire features a state-of-the-art dual-core processor for fast, powerful performance. Stream music while browsing the web or read books while downloading videos.

Ultra-fast web browsing - Amazon Silk

Amazon Silk is a revolutionary, cloud-accelerated browser that uses a "split browser" architecture to leverage the computing speed and power of the Amazon Web Services cloud. Supports Adobe® Flash® Player.

Overall

An amazing tablet that compares similar features to the Apple iPad. At a more affordable price, this tablet lets users do almost anything imaginable as its very interactive. This creative tablet sync's in with Amazon's store which gives you access for millions of apps.

GelosterInc sells them here on eBay at the best price!

Review For: Amazon Kindle Fire 8GB, Wi-Fi, 7in - Black (New Edition)
The Kindle Fire is an excellent Amazon media device. The smaller size makes it way more portable than my Transformer Prime tablet. I commute by train/trolley here in San Diego, and this little guy is a great companion! It won't replace my "real" tablet, but since it weighs about the same as paperback book, it is in my purse every time I leave the house! I also have a mobile broadband router, which makes the Kindle even more fun!
I recommend purchasing the KF on eBay and NOT Amazon, who ships the device with a full battery and linked to your Amazon account- no password needed for digital purchases!

Review For: Amazon Kindle Fire 8GB, Wi-Fi, 7in - Black (New Edition)
Very good product by Amazon. I use it in UK but purchased it on here eBay from USA. There are no restrictions related to use of internet. Obviously, since the product was produced for US market at the moment all downloads of Android applications can be done legally from 3rd party Companies.I use Skype (messaging), Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Netflix, Drop-box and many others apps. I can use Amazon cloud space,5Gb is free,upload and download documents,mp3 files, pictures, etc. Also, it is possible to purchase e-books from Amazon UK.
I very much hope in the near future Amazon will open all its services also in UK and Europe(wonder why this is not done already),quite big markets I think.
I don't agree with some comments related to use of video applications since I watch Netflix films, BBC programmes, etc. and video quality if just fine (depends on internet speed).
For me it is a good product and I've got what I wanted. An excellent value for money.
