Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Fire HD 7", Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 16 GB - Includes Special Offers [Previous Generation] (Electronics)
I ordered the Kindle Fire HD on Monday following an e-mail from Amazon who had just that day reduced the price from £159 to £119 a real bargain, guess a new version is coming out and also Tesco are launching their Hudl. Both turned out to be correct.I had been thinking for a long time to buy a Kindle Paperwhite as my wife had already purchased one and is highly delighted with it. I feel it is more portable than my Apple iPad. I was advised that the Kindle would arrive on Fri. or the following Mon. as I chose the no postage option and it actually arrived yesterday - Wed absolutely brilliant.
It was straight forward to set up with Google e-mail instant although Sky via Yahoo took a bit longer until I worked out what was required to download. Some Android apps work although Amazon have a slightly different system so don't bet on all of them working or even being found.
Books previously purchased and downloaded to iPad were in an instant copied and synchronized with it Some previous cd's of music were downloaded from Amazon automatically although not all. However trying to synchronize music from Desktop PC appeared on PC to be OK but couldn't be accessed on Kindle so more work to to to work out how to change format of music.
It comes with 1 month of free Amazon Prime, have just borrowed 1 book (max for month), time will tell to see if I go on to subscribe for year for £49 , would I get value for money?
Tried out camera, photos seem good although camera only use is really for Skype or taking self shots!
The colours on the screen are excellent and all in all a very easy product to set up and use.
All in all, on only 2nd day of owning the Kindle am well pleased with purchase.
