    Critical Review from Wired: Is This Really the Tablet Everyone’s Talking About?

    "The Fire’s processor appears ill-prepared to quickly redraw visually intense digital magazine pages. Swiping from page to page occurs in disorienting stutter-steps, making any semblance of ‘reading’ a chore."

    Ouch...

    Well I'll know if I can live with it or not on the 16th.
    Because I don't plan on rooting I need it to come out of the box working as smooth as possible.
    On 11/16 I'll know.

    Thanks for posting the video review, Hidef1080. That's the second complaint in a review I've seen about lack of a physical volume control (or home button). However, as long as volume controls are easily accessed from every app & screen, it may not be as much of a problem as I feared when I first heard about this.

    It's not an iPad but is is what I was looking for. I think I'll be a happy camper this week.

    It seems to be more of a "this isn't what I'm used to!" complaint.

    There was a good review posted last night on Engadget and they are Apple fanboys. They were particularly impressed with the solid build.

    You can't expect the same hardware for $200 that Apple sells for $450. However, we can expect a more user friendly device made with a more open ecosystem. That's all I want.
