Now if you are an “Apple lover”, stop reading right now. The review I am about to give may cause you to scream, cry, dry heave, shake a baby, question your sexuality, or vote for Obama. But lets face it…if you are an Apple lover you are probably too busy sitting at Starbucks jerking off to the sound of Siri reading the audiobook version of Steve Jobs' Biography. I have no intention of comparing the Kindle to the iPad…as far as I am concerned they are two completely different products and price ranges.
I really, really like the Kindle Fire as a low cost tablet. It has been great for my wife. She uses it every day for reading, surfing the internet, listening to music, preparing her church lessons, entertaining kids, and taking notes. We have had it now for 9 months, and it still works great. As a reader, it has proven worth its weight in Gold. My wife has read dozens of books on it already. The 7 inch screen is big enough to see just about every URL while still being compact enough to fit in a small purse or suit jacket pocket. We have watched full length Netflix movies on it without any problems. Every
once and a while the screen freezes and it has to be restarted, but these instances are few and far between. She has even loaded the CD of cooking recipes!
For a $200 dollar tablet, the Kindle Fire is a great buy. I would buy it again in a heartbeat…in fact; I am probably buying one for my daughter this coming Christmas. 4 stars!
