    When you came late into the tablet war at least tried to offer something refreshing. That wasted space could have been adapted with extra screen space. The only refreshing about this device is the price.

    With the recent Microsoft, Google Cloud services outage. Cloud rendering? Hmm...

    I love my kindle but the new one makes mine look dated!

    Amazon are going to release a 10" tablet early next year. If they keep the price low, add a camera and expandable memory it will rape the ipad. I will definitely get one.

    The problem with the ipad is there is no competition so this is sorely needed.

    Bought my Mrs. a kindle when it first came out and she uses it every day. I am very tempted to upgrade her to the new fire as it looks very nice.

    Kindle Touch?

    Surprised assholes at Apple haven't launched a lawsuit yet for using the word Touch.

    Anneon that's hardly an upgrade. They're totally different devices. For use as an e-reader it would be a serious downgrade.

    Don't worry, they will eventually, but like all good patent trolls they are giving the other company some time to make millions with the device first so they can then inflate the numbers more when they go to cry in Court.

    The fire isn't an upgrade to a normal kindle. It us the normal backlit display so isn't meant for use as a ereader.

    If she wants a device for web browsing and TV watching on the move then it looks very good owever it not designed tobe used for reading books.
