I didn’t like the iPad as I didn’t think you get a good return on your dollar. Yes, I took one home and used it for a day, but wasn’t happy with it.
I did see a Kindle Fire in the store and liked it. Told husband to get it to me for birthday/Christmas and he gave it to me for my birthday.
First, it gives me a chance to see what the Android phone is all about without having to own the phone. I have an iPod Touch for the same reason.
Second, it just reads well, especially magazines, and not just Kindle Magazines. I am able to read my Clean Run magazines, as well as the Kindle ones.
It’s a good size, had a good interface. I understand it sort of sucked before the update, but I got the update before I realized that.
Web works well, and I’ve even been able to load non-Amazon marketplace apps (kmEye for my surveillance cameras.
