I LOVE my Kindle Fire!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kindle Fire (Previous Generation - 1st) (Electronics)
Okay, it's not perfect, but this first version of the Kindle Fire suits me just fine. It's my very first kindle, though I have kindle apps on both my laptop and android phone. I have a few wishes for any further versions, but as a gift to myself on an upcoming significant birthday, the K-fire makes me very happy.
Once I learned how to navigate through it, I had my ever growing e-library aboard, along with my photos and music. I am really enjoying all the apps (oh...so hate my addiction to hungry birds! :-) and I like that Amazon gives out a free app every day.
I have decided to join or keep Amazon Prime and make more use of the cloud and the readers lending library.
Watching videos on the screen is great, and I like the free Prime selections, and I WILL learn how to view my own uploaded movies (no luck there so far; not sure if it's the format or source that's preventing the viewing; did download two media viewers, but need to find the one I use on my HTC EVO Aneroid phone).
I found the one thing thing lacking, a micro usb link to my computer, found if cheap at WallyWorld. It works with my computer just fine.
For someone who lives in a very rural area with sometimes ify wi-fi coverage, the Kindle-Fire has lived up to my expectations. I will probably hand this one down when an updated version comes along, but for now, I an just contented and blissfully happy. Between my Android phone & and the kindle fire, I have all my online/offline computing needs (portable that is) right at my fingertips.
No computer, smartphone, tablet, or kindle is or will be perfect; but while I wait for the chance for that, I sure am having lots of productive fun!
