    Default Amazon Fire Tablet

    Hi everyone, I know I should have waited, but for 199.99 this new Amazon Fire was too much to resist. Its in full color, full 1080p , and has free cloud technology, and for another 39.00 a year ( with .edu e-mail addy)you can download over 10 million movies, TV shows, (all Fox series like 24, and such) and its free wifi and wireless n capabilities made it too much to say no to. I was going to buy an Apple Tablet but this is almost 300.00 dollars cheaper and I can lay in bed and browse the internet and post on my favorite forum ( PureOC) , I am really looking forward to sharing this devices and its capabilities with all of you. I believe and its only my personal opinion that this device will sell like hotcake thru the holidays and put a real dent in IPAD 2 and 3 sales. Whats your opinion?

    I think that their sales will be significant, if only because of that stellar price point. It's a nifty little device with a lot of content available for it.
    What's not to like?
    Enjoy that thing.

    I also got free Amazon Prime for 6 months because my son is in College and has a .edu address, and after the free 6 months all I have to pay is 39.99 for free downloads of all content ( Cloud stored) for free. Its like a dream.

Plus anything you buy from Amazon, anything has 2 day free shipping that you can upgrade to overnight for 3.99. This deal cannot be beat, Apple is going to have do something about the Ipad 2 and 3 quickly to keep up.

    I've been waiting following this product in some tech news forums for quite sometime. I was disappointed when the finer details of this unit was leaked a couple weeks ago.
    For me, I was hoping for more. I wanted more bells & whistles (at least 16 or 32gb, card slot, HDMI, etc.) but for the price point and with Amazon's Cloud system it will do well.
    The rumors are that sometime during 1st Qtr. 2012 a 10" model will come available with maybe more extras on it.

    Yep, the old waiting game. I know what you're sayin', but for me a 10" is a must.
