Joshua Topolsky from the Verge gives a detailed run down of the Kindle Fire; launching on the 15th of November here in the States. Based on his review which can be read here I’m happy with my decision to get the Kindle Fire. For me it’s a nice little wedge between my desktop and iPad. Yes, I said iPad – my laptop replacement device for now. It was because of the 7 inch form factor and $199 price point that swayed my decision to get the Kindle Fire. The iPad in many situations is good for a lean back experience however it was terrible for in reading in bed and carrying it around in my ScottyVest jacket. Although it only has WiFi which 99% of the time I’m at least near some sort of hotspot (and I do have a 4G MiFi card that goes whereever I go).
As soon as I have my hands on the Kindle Fire, I’ll post my first impressions. Until then check out Josh’s review.
