If you're in a wi-fi hotspot, I guess you could email someone or update Facebook/Twitter or something, but the Fire is not a phone, so not really.

You think that a tablet should also act as your phone?

I think that would raise the price a couple hundred $.

Maybe my shoe should act as a phone like Maxwell Smart had.

Maybe it should be able to plug into your car and instruct your car how to drive you to the nearest emergency room.

Kindle. Kindle Fire. E-book reader/tablet of sorts.

Why would you think it could substitute as a phone?

"...If there's not, there should be!! just saying... "

Because everything should do everything? Because anything with a battery in it that fits in your purse should be a phone? Because Amazon should protect you from bad luck and trouble?

WHO was it exactly that forgot her phone on the table?

My flashlight has a battery and it fits in my purse!

IT SHOULD TOTALLY BE A PHONE!!!

;)

Sigh. It should be there because the OP waaaaaaaants it. And doesn't want to have to remember her cell phone. *rolls eyes*

This is really funny...

"Hey, my phone is dead! Can you call 911 with your coffee maker please? Thanks?"

Hmm.. my cell phone is one of the old nokia 1100's and it has a led flashlight in the top of it...

Well, uh, you could randomly chunk it at someone's head repeatedly until someone calls the cops o you.

I know other things that have batteries and fit in a purse (not that I carry mine in my purse)....but I sure don't want that item dialing 911...just saying.

I've been thinking that a tablet is sort of digital age disaster preparedness kit. I live in California and we are expecting "The Big One." So yes, I think about these things! I don't have a smart phone so I would have no way of connecting to the internet or paying bills after we do have the big quake. I can't exactly run out of the house carrying my desktop! I could easily grab a tablet though. Then just find a hot spot; even if I do have to find my way to Nevada to do it. Then I could update everyone via email, FB and twitter. I could even pay bills via Bill Pay.

If I was trapped under my house and my neighbor had an unsecured network, I could email a friend..."I'm trapped, send rescue"! So in a disaster, a tablet might be a good thing to have in this digital age. :)

hmmm, maybe something about a voice activated safeword.

I think it would be really great if th KF could used as an emergency signal device. However, without phone capability or GPS, it would have to use
1. Smoke signals
2. Signal rockets (you know, like in titanic)
3. Tornado siren
4. Church bells.
Perhaps different models would have a different signal, so we here would know what kind of Kindle the person has! Also, think of all thenew threads we could respond to:
"I accidentally triggered my kindle alarm in church last week and the signal rockets set fire to the roof and burned down the church and now the pastor won't let me come back! Should I call customer service?"

Just a thought...

Added bonus - you could play Angry Birds Space while waiting to be rescued...
