This is a discussion on Amazon Kindle Fire Spec Sheet - Updated as we know more... within the Amazon Kindle Fire General Discussions forums, part of the Amazon Kindle Fire Forum category; Originally Posted by JobsiteFish I think the device is fine as it is. Many people only need the features the kindle fire offers. Having said ...
I have Kindle apps for my PC (loaded onto my Asus netbook), my HTC Thunderbolt (& previously my OG Droid), have a 3G/WiFi/Kindle Keyboard, & pre-ordered a Kindle Touch & Fire. I've got an Audible.com & Amazon Prime account. Why wouldn't I want a Fire? Yep - Amazon is sucking me in. - But at <$200, I can play with it & then decide whether I need a more powerful tablet that will not load Amazon & Audible content.
Its not for everyone but hey, Asus isnt so bad.
Looks like the op needs to do some updating.
And compared to the NC my daughter has, Amazon has so much great varieties of books that is FREE. Each day there's always something new. And I'm glad they partnered with Android OS.
B & N doesn't have the variety like Amazon. Thats IMO
