Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Fire HD 7", Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi [Previous Generation] (Electronics)
I've owned a Kindle Keyboard for a couple of years and love it. I also have the new iPad which is great but I've been waiting for the Kindle Fire to come out in the UK for ages. I recently went to New York and saw them for sale but held off because of the issues of buying content for it without a US billing address. I held off and am so glad I did.
Ordered the 16 gb Kindle Fire HD ON Saturday and with the free P&P was expecting delivery on Friday but it came today! I was a bit worried I would find setting it up difficult as I'm used to the iOS way of doing things but it was notroblem at all. My book and document library was all there waiting for me and I was streaming movies from LoveFilm within an hour or so. Importing music I'd already transferred to the Amazon cloud was as simple as anything, together with photos I'd already uploaded.
Have been able to charge the device using the USB plug that came with the KK and its already for use tomorrow.
I was a bit concerned at some of the reviews I've read here but I shouldn't have been. The App Store has had a bit of bad press but there's plenty here to keep me busy.
The Kindle Fire has re-confirmed my belief that Amazon is an amazing company and rivals Apple anyday. Am going to make full use of the free month's trail of Prime when ordering Christmas presents and might even borrow a book from the kindle lending library.
If your having any doubts about getting one - don't.
