    To me the Kindle is for Amazon Prime Members only. Which I am one but I don't own this device for several reasons. 7-inch and 8.9-inch where is the 10.1-inch. They need to release one. I am not paying almost $400 on 8.9-inch no way. Then it's all proprietary tablet it's not the standard Jelly bean. So your stuck using whatever they have to offer for it. All made to use Amazon Prime Instant Videos, Amazon Cloud, Amazon App Store, Amazon MP3, Amazon Kindle Reader an etc.

    It's basically a tablet design to make them more profit and the prices for this item is so low because if you read the fine print it says the adverts from other vendors can be displayed on your screen savers. I don't need more ads in my face. Of course you can opt out and pay more for these tablets which is the trade off. Knocking 15% off them already outrageous pricing method just not going to fly with me.
