New to KIndle Fire.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Fire HDX 7", HDX Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB - Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation - 3rd) (Electronics)
Have had Kindle book reader for a couple of years and thought that I'd upgrade this year to The Kindle Fire HDX from Amazon.co.uk. I went for the 32GB version as there is no way of adding extra memory. I thought long and hard about buying the Kindle Fire,the alternatives were either the Nexus 7 or the Galaxy 3,7" but after using comparison sites, on which the Kindle Fire HDX seemed to come out tops on the sites,I used so I bought a Kindle FireHDX. It arrived very quick, so no shortage of kindles. Set up was extremely easy as I am not a computer whiz kid and I had no trouble loading books from my old Kindle to the new one. I was dismayed that Skygo and itunes could'nt load and eventually found out from SKY that I could'nt download SKY-GO which in my case would've been ideal as a customer of SKY. No apps from Google are able to be downloaded which again was a bit of a disappointment as there is a lot of content in Google that I would've like to use. I had some trouble finding several operational routes but on using the MAYDAY I was able to find how to access and solve any issues that I had. Access to the internet is usually quick and the resulting screen resolutions are very good. Not having access to several sites that I would have liked to use was disappointing. It would've been nice if I had known this before hand about restrictive access and to the sites to which this applied. Despite all this overall I am pleased with this my first tablet.Maybe the future will bring us closer to the perfect tablet with all bells ringing.

I'm not sure why you expected to be able to use itunes with it when that's an apple system, but I agree that it's disappointing not to be able to use the google play store or sky-go. That was a deal-breaker for me as my connection really isn't fast enough for streaming movies (I do have broadband, but live in a really slow rural area), and with the UK kindle it seems that streaming is all you can do frustratingly

I am myself looking for a tablet and thinking to go for the kindle fire. The use would be most of the time for playing games and maybe browsing the internet when require, do you have to pay a fee to use it?
