Amazon Kindle Fire HD Review

0. phoneArena posted on 17 Sep 2012, 05:26

It’s funny how things go sometimes, especially in the case for Amazon, who for one, didn’t have any piece of the tablet market a year ago. Since the release of the Kindle Fire, they’ve proven to everyone in the industry that they’re a force to be reckoned with – even more when the Kindle Fire currently occupies the number two spot right behind the iPad in terms of market share. Well people, they’re back with an even better model with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD...

Amazon did fire it up, but the advertising bit is unattractive!!

Huge improvement but agreed it needs the Google Play Store.

Amazon is trying to break away from Google, hence no Play Store or any built in Google Apps. Looks like Amazon might be courting danger here since they are running the Kindle on Google's Android 4.0, calling it their own might be a big issue. Guess Google doesn't care as they sent the Nexus 7 out to hunt down those Kindle's. If you are going to have a front only shooter, at least make it 2.0mpx sheesh and have it with all the options, i hate half assed front shooting cameras, why bother if the end result is garbage?

I was on the fence between the Kindle Fire HD and the Nexus 7. I'll probable go for the Kindle since Amazon has a better movie and music selection.
