Kindle Fire HDX 16g,
This review is from: Kindle Fire HDX 7" (Electronics)
Like the majority of people leaving reviews I am very disappointed in the way Amazon advertise and sell this product. It is very misleading to sell the product without telling buyers that they can only download and install apps that they purchase from Amazon. The majority of customers like myself would prefer to install apps on their own kindle of their own choosing and on the basis of free trade, not on the basis of now you own it you cannot use it unless you give us more money. Its like buying a car and then having to buy wheels and an ignition key. So all in all it is not the product I thought I was buying and very disappointing . I would not advise anyone to purchase one.

Amazon made the Kindle range to sell 'product' , havent you worked that out, same with the Tesco ' Hudl ' tablet, and of course Nexus sell Google stuff and not forgetting Apple with their Itunes Store...its all geared to sell and promote their wares. With a name like Amazon what did you expect from their tablet ?.

both the tablets you mention are allowed, and capable of downloading and installing apps from various stores and not just the one where the tablet was purchased from. With a name like Amazon I would expect a fair sales and not a monopoly stratergy

The Amazon app store has apps designed for the Kindle Fire. See it has Quality not Quantity although there are 75000 to choose from. Or lean how to side-load apps from the Play Store. I tried it and very easy. If your only requirement is loading apps willy nilly then agree the Kindle Fire may not be the device for you.

If you sideload 1 mobile which is very easy to do instructions on youtube you can download many android products. If you research your product (youtube has many tech reviewers) you would know what you are buying. I don't think you can blame amazon for your lack of research it is not difficult
