Fire is lit, hand the torch to android tablet
Strengths: clean, clear picture and responsive screen, plenty of apps, nice touch. free Prime for a month. worth the price, not much more. 16g might be more useful. online and phone customer support is decent.
Weakness: poor disclosure of incompatible books!!! 1st book I purchased I cannot use on the Fire. limited action to xfer between desktop and Fire instead of just the cloud. Definitely a Reader not a Tablet.
The Kindle Fire is a vast improvement upon earlier Kindle readers. It is certainly worth the $200, quick ship and reader download options. I'm pleased with my purchase and plan to buy others as gifts for friends. It is very limited though to the Amazon's merchant profile. I would rather have interface options with my desktop material, more tabletesque. Good intro tech product for young...

The Kindle Fire is a vast improvement upon earlier Kindle readers. It is certainly worth the $200, quick ship and reader download options. I'm pleased with my purchase and plan to buy others as gifts for friends. It is very limited though to the Amazon's merchant profile. I would rather have interface options with my desktop material, more tabletesque. Good intro tech product for young and old.

Strengths: Crisp display, Amazon Kindle store at your fingertips, does a few things and does them well
Weakness: A little on the heavy side, limited apps from what I can tell, no major problems with it though.
My first e-reader. I am convinced that this piece of technology will change the way I read and consume media for years to come. At $200 its a good value. I didn't want all the bells and whistles of a tablet. This is an e-reader first, and a tablet second, but still gives me the ability to do simple web-based tasks.

Strengths: Kindle got rid of all those anoying buttons at the bottom of the reader.
Weakness: Battery life. Cheap looking construction.
Glorified e-reader. Not fast enough or sharp enough to be called a tablet.

Strengths: Beautiful, smooth, easy to use, intuitive.
Weakness: None that I have discovered.
I've had my Kindle Fire for two weeks and I love it. I had no trouble getting started with it and it does everything I had hoped it would do. It's a pleasure to read on and it also makes it easy to check e-mail and facebook.

Strengths: You can't judge a book by its cover! The Kindle Fire looked great....but
Weakness: After several hours online w/Amazon tech, the Kindle would not recognize my wi-fi connection.
I am now in process of returning it to Amazon. I had purchased a cable to connect via the computer, however, the return charges for shipping out weigh the cost of the cable so I will keep and donate to the local library that has a Kindle for loan.
