"Great Tablet!"5.0 starson by microdots5050
Pros: The multimedia is great on this tablet. I like the hdmi port as well. The ease of access to the almighty amazon store is a plus. After using it for awhile, you kind of forget that it's a kindle, because it goes far beyond just reading books.
Cons: My only real gripe is the Silk browser. After hours of use, it can start to error out on you, or crash. This can be very frustrating. To get past this, I just use a different browser, like Dolphin.
Summary: Besides the Silk browser, I really love my Kindle. Netflix looks great on it, and music sounds ace as well. The battery lasts a good 7 hours for me, multitasking the whole time. Ofcourse reading books is top notch on the Kindle, along with the Premium Amazon option. This is coming from an Ipad 3, and Samsung Galaxy 1 tab owner. Sure it may not have the total smoothness of an Ipad, but it is a workhorse with beauty for half of the Ipad cost.
