Anyone got any views on the new Amazon Kindle Fire.. smile

I'm after a tablet but want a good one.

The Kindle Fire HD looks to be about the best of the range @ 159.

Father Christmas can't stretch to a ipad this year unfortunatly.. smile

Kindle fire hd looks good from reviews, but there is allegedly a mini ipad being announced next week for around 200

Microsoft will soon be bringing out a tablet to rival the iPad and what I've heard will be very competatively priced!

The Amazon Kindle Fire HD is in my opinion a well specced tablet. ( 7 inch screen, Dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP4 4460 CPU, 1GHz). It's a fully fledged tablet device using a customised version Android OS, rather than just an e-book reader like the original kindles.

Drawback with kindles are they can only access apps on the Amazon app store which there is about 60,000 apps, compared to approx 600,000 on the Google playstore.

As an alternative I would suggest looking at the Google Nexus 7, the 8GB version can be got for 159.

It's out, it's crap, it won't run Windows applications, it is way overpriced once you add the (needed) keyboard. Avoid.

I bought a Kindle at the beginning of the year, the first one. I use it solely for reading and am wearing it out! I love it.

I must admit the ipad is the must have tablet and if there is a new mini version coming out which more reasonably priced, I may just hang on a bit.. smile

It's always the way.. I recently upgraded my mobile and the next week the new iphone5 came out..

My Son & I have both got a Barnes & Noble 'Nook Color' 7" tablet [8GB]. It has excellent graffics & a sensitive touch screen.
Have inserted a rooted 32GB micro SD card so you can download any apps or games from Google Store [or 4Share] etc.
You get a colour Ereader [backlit],internet browser, mp3 player, video player & gaming device for less than the price of a Kindle 3G. Have a look on Ebay.

The Google Nexus 7 does look a very good option.. smile

The main reasons for me wanting a tablet pc is to surf the net and check my emails on the move, ideally using a onboard programs. Open and view documents and photo's aswell.

How compatable is the Apple with Windows files?
