Yesterday I was glad I hadn't yet purchased a Nexus 7, because the Kindle HD 8.9 looked even better. Now once again the Nexus 7 is looking better. A commercial in the middle of a TV show is one thing, but I don't expect ads in the middle of reading a book.
Of course, I imagine it won't be long before someone figures out how to root the new Kindles and installs ICS or JB.

Actually according to Amazon customer service it comes with android 4.0 ICS.

I would rather have the 7inch KINDLE or N7 as it fits in my hands.

Based on my understading. The ads will now come up while you're reading. There are only ads on the lock screen, that's all.

I guess I won't be buying one then. Google should thank Amazon for helping to sell Nexus 7's.

root it....unlock the bootloader and flash custom rom. done

Yep, that will take care of most ads. I dislike AMAZON appstore, only because they are slow at updating an app, but sometimes I get one that is free that would normally cost money on GOOGLE PLAY.

they want to make money and it is an open OS.
