5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I bought a Kindle Fire!!!, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Fire 7", LCD Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB - With Special Offers [Previous Generation] (Electronics)
I have been thinking about buying a tablet for ages, and was struggling to decide between a nexus 7 or a samsug tab 2. I never looked at the kindle as I already had one (the one with the keyboard) and didnt think it would be worth owning two.
However, I then got to have a go on one! It is smooth, quick and idiot proof for a technophobe like me. I bought one at the weekend and am so glad i did.
It is really easy to set up, I switched it on and my books were all on there, even the one i am reading right now was set to the right page. Games are fast and clear, I have had to wrestle if from my husband as he loves plying angry birds!
The only downside is that it is not supplied with a charger. Not a massive problem as I have my old kindle charger, but if I didnt I would not have been able to charge it as we do not have a computer.
Have read some reviews about it being impossible to read the kindle fire outdoors. This is not a problem for me. I have used it outside and the screen seemed fine (much better than my samsung phone). I think that it is great, as I can now stay up and read in the dark without disturbing my husband. This was one major drawback of my old kindle, as the small readling lights that you can buy really limit your field of vision.
All in all, a fab device! I have even convinced my sister to buy one!

Thank you,as my husband has an old kindle and has to use a light to read on a night,I want to buy him a fire HD and was hoping it would be easier for him to see on a night without the use of a light as I agree they're not much use..

Can you access the Google Play Store to access the apps you've bought there previously?

Is the product new?

This is the Kindle Fire Tablet [Previous Generation] 7" LCD Display, Wi-Fi, 8GB.

It is new in so much as it is a 'new', unused product. But there is a more recent model available.
