4.0 out of 5 stars Not for Kindle HD, 16 Nov 2012
This review is from: Asimov's Science Fiction (Kindle Edition)
I was most disappointed to find that I could not transfer my long standing subscription to this magazine and Analog from my Kindle keyboard to my new Kindle Fire HD.
It appears that the UK versions are not compatible with the FIRE whereas the US version is. But Amazon US refers me back to UK when I try to set up a subscription through the US site. It's probably a matter of VAT - but it is sad that once again we lag behind the US.

Come on AMAZON - sort it out please!

This seems utterly insane to me! I was about to buy a subscription for my new Kindle Fire but find that I am prohibited from doing so! This is a ludicrous restriction that puts barriers in front of the customer and loses the publisher (and Amazon) a lot of money. Really ... what are these people thinking? We're in the midst of the worst global recession in human history and here are businesses that are actively trying to stop customers from buying their products!!! It's almost beyond belief. Almost.

Grrrrr I thought I had had an ingenious idea for Dad's Christmas present, but find you can't get this on a Fire?! Are Amazon are punishing those of us who were kind enough to purchase their latest product? Ridiculous.

Amazon just placed the following on the Analog Sci Fi page:-"The color Kindle edition of Analog Science Fiction and Fact is now available on the Kindle Reading App for your Android device. Download issues at no extra cost".
So now you have to sell your Fire and buy an Android device in order to get Analog in colour - what a mess.

Come on Amazon sort it out PLEASE!

Hello! Is anybody there? Perhaps they are all aliens!
