Can you add memory to Kindle Fire?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 27, 2011 9:14:56 PM PST
No! There is no provision for a SD card.

why would anyone make a tablet without extra memory capabilities?

Thanks why you have the USB cable adapter, if you need extra storage use it...

Skip, because Amazon provides free Cloud storage AND the Fire is priced at under 200-bucks. If you spend 400 you can get an SD card.

...or buy another brand's $200 tablet that has.

Amazon could easily have installed a Micro SD card slot in this cheap tablet!

You don't need more memory. Use the cloud.

Some people like to be in charge of their OWN memory!

LOL

Pete,
>>Amazon could easily have installed a Micro SD card slot in this cheap tablet!

And you bought a Fire instead -- because?
Please don't tell me you didn't read the specs before purchase? Actually is the Fire available "down under?"

Amazon WANT you to be using the cloud, that's why a tablet with this many features is at half the price of a more fully featured tablets.

I for one, am super happy with mine just as it is. The internal 6G of memory can store 1500-plus books or 5+ movies. Just how much do you want?

Cloud storage is free only up to a 5 gig limit. After that you pay Amazon for more storage. I have a Fire and mostly like the device, however, an SD memory slot would have been nice as I have about 90 gigs of music and video.

In a e-book reader that would be fine but this is primarily a small computer and 6GB doesn't cut it.

Hell! My phone holds 32GB!

But - Pete, do you own a Fire?

And, I think you will find the Fire is being marketed as an e-reader. I can't find mention of it being claimed to be anything but, e-reader with email and browser. Maybe get yourself a Nook if you want to spend 50-bucks more for the SD card and no Cloud storage at all.

...and your phone cost how much? :)
Hmm, lemme see, 2-year contract $59.99/month, $1,439.76 plus the price of the phone, yeah, good deal.

Hey Cotton, you keep telling yourself you got a good deal and that is fine but reality is that it is not primarily an e-book reader in the true sense and not a complete Android tablet.

My phone deal here in Oz is $17.99 a month for $550 worth of calls anywhere and unlimited free calls to others with the same company. Plus 1.5GB of internet on it per month. Owned the phone already.

Pays to know what is about and to shop around.

Enjoy your half hearted reader and tablet!

Condiments of the Seasoning. :)

Have not dodged that question at all as I thought it would be plainly clear that I didn't have from my posts.

Not to mention that Amazon don't sell the Fire outside of the States.

BTW: I would not want a Fire! I do have a 10 Android tablet that cost a little less than the Fire, It has 8GB memory, expandable to 32GB, a camera and a microphone.

The Kindle app runs well on it but still prefer the e-ink Kindle for reading.

Thanks for the info and lively discussion. I am going to purchase a Kindle Fire. It is perfect for what I want and I can afford it without going into debt.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 1, 2012 8:01:58 AM PST
You mean like Apple? $500 iPad - No SD provision. No USB port. What do you want for $200?

cloud would be a wonderful asset to have no good though if you are an out of U S A ie Canadian user . Amazon does not provide cloud out of America although they sell Fire worldwide .You can not even access it as an American traveler so it comes up short with low memory in a lot of cases That being said as a reader and small seach tool it is amazing & is a great tool for me

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 6, 2012 2:03:44 PM PST
Actually Amazon do not sell the Fire worldwide.

It is only in the USA at the present time.

Strangely enough today I received an email from Amazon saying the Kindle Touch is now available here in Australia.

I do agree the Fire lacks any other form of storage and that is a big mistake. IMHO

I love mine and agree about the cloud. I have 5000 songs and 700 books so far. It's great to have the music all in an off site storage, although it did take 5 days to download it. Now I add as I go and I don't have to worry about losing it if my computer dies.

Actually, its unlimited if you get your content from amazon. And if you pay for 20gb of storage, all music is free, no matter where its from.
