Pros Battery, size, Apps
Cons Button placement
Summary I have been an iPad owner and Apple supporter since day 1. I purchased the iPad 3 4 months ago, only to find out that it was obsolete now. I can't see spending the $530 for a 32GB Mini with half the processor and resolution. Out of spite, I decided to purchase the Kindle and utilize my prime membership. I can tell you I can't put this thing down, I love it! The only downside that I can see is the buttons (on/off and volume), but I think I am just used to the iPad. If it helps I am an IT engineer and I chose this product.
Pros Nice screen, sound and HDMI port is a good feature. Music player is also solid and skyping is easy.
Cons This device does not support Adobe Flash and as a result youtube videos are unplayable ... major fail
Summary I don't like too many devices and was hoping this would prove to be a mainstay for travel, etc. It's just OK
Pros Amazing sound and great screen!
Amazon keeps throwing credits at me and the Prime thing is great.
Cons 15.00 to cancel ads.
I hated not seeing what I want on the screen saver.
Pros Awesome sound and video. Many apps to choose from
Cons the power and volume are somewhat hard to work with.
