Like literally millions of others, I received a Kindle Fire for Christmas and after a few days of use I thought I would give my first impressions. I’ve read a number of Kindle Fire reviews that complain it’s not an Ipad killer or not an high end Android phone. Their right. It’s not meant to be. But what it is is a great 7 inch Android tablet and ebook reader and the form factor is perfect for my needs.
The Silk browser tends to be a bit quirky and occasionally non-responsive. Also, the touch interface isn’t stellar but I’ve gotten very good at tapping out emails in just a few hours. For very small links on webpages, it can be tricky to use but I find a lighter touch often helps.
For $199, the Kindle is an amazing bargain. Thanks Amazon.
