I've had a first generation Kindle Fire and love it. I ordered the new 8.9" HD as soon as they posted it, but just recently noticed that it is now a "With Special Offers" and costs an extra $15 bucks to eliminate those.

If I remember right, that was not listed when I originally placed the order? Does anyone else who ordered early remember if special offers was part of the original pricing?

Yes the original pricing included special offers, they did not give you a choice to get it without speical offers. Lot of customers complained about it and Amazon relented and offered to remove the special offers for $15 and they added the option to the order page.

It was not discussed during the announcement presentation and was buried in the fine print, so its not surprising that you didn't realize the special offers were included on your tablet since a lot of people who ordered it didn't notice either (including myself).

Well, it definitely is making me rethink this one and consider a Google Nexus instead. The $15 to remove the special offers means it's only $85 in difference and the 10" versus the 8.9" screen just might be worth it. Plus I can get it now and I would think all my current Fire apps/books will work on it.

Or, as a doctor many of us know around here likes to say... "first world problems." :)

Definitely a first world problem! Also worth considering with the Nexus is I can use any app available for android and not just the amazon ones.

Do any of the kindles have a jack for headphones?

I think they all have a headphone jack. That's the only external connector on the original Fire.
