Today as I was going through my facebook feed, I found that Amazon.ca had posted an update with a link to this:
I've been intrigued by the idea of owning a Kindle Fire from the moment they first released, but was obviously deterred by the fact that they are not directly available here. Sure I could have bought one while in the states, but I'm one of those paranoid people who would worry about whether it will work--at all--when I got it home.
To me this seems like pretty exciting news, so I figured I'd start a thread to see what thoughts others could add.
-- Does anyone outside the US have experience with Kindle Fire coming to your country? Is it worth getting if you're not from the states?
-- My logic in getting a Fire would be to use it as a tablet. (And, of course, to read. Though I'm sure I'll still keep my regular kindle around as well--longer battery life + e-ink). Has anyone else used the Fire in this manner? How does it stack up? What advantages or limitations does it have next to a 'regular' tablet? Next to an iPad?
-- If you own a Fire in general (anywhere in the world) are you happy with it? How do you use it / what has it improved for you?
-- Does anyone have advice on which model is the best choice? Which accessories are must haves? Which bluetooth keyboard(s) work with this device? Which apps are the most handy / interesting?
-- My fellow Canadians: Are any of you excited about the release of the Kindle Fire here, too? What are your hopes? Concerns?
Anyway, I hope there are others who are interested in this too and I figured it was worth a try. Thanks so much for taking the time to read. Have a great day!
