Kindle Fire or other tablet?

Recommended Posts

The Fires run a forked version of Android. Amazon will release bug fixes, but has chosen not to do major OS upgrades, preferring to release a more recent version only with the next model.


Check out the Google Nexus 7. Overall its hardware is better than the Kindle HD'so, and Google will keep updating the OS as long as the tablet will handle it. With the Nexus, you won't be tied into one ecosystem (there are Kindle and Nook apps), not even for apps.

Just to let you know if you are thinking of a Kindle Fire Amazon has them on sale today only for $129. If you are interested I can pm you the link and promo code...and I swear this isn't spam :)



Thanks! I saw it when I got on this morning, and am now trying to decide between it and the Vizio which I also found on Amazon. I love my Vizio and KNOW how to keep up with his internet usage on it. I am unsure about the Fire, but like the price.
