    Looks cool, but my Kindle is pretty new, and I don't use it for anything other than reading.

    Good price, but I think the 7" screen size seems really small compared to other tablets.

    Re: Pre Order $199 Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet

    To be honest, it takes away a lot of what is good about android. No android market, no google apps (amazon proprietary email), on android 2.x. Plus it has a smaller screen.

    I may be interested once the devs root it and get honecomb\ice cream sandwich on it though.

    Meh, its display is 2 inches shorter than the ipad2's and it weighs almost a 1/2 lb less...and it's over $400 cheaper.

    It's already on the wife's christmas list.

    Re: Pre Order $199 Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet

    They had these on sale for $70 earlier this week. I bought one figuring I couldn't really go wrong (and missed out on the HP Touchpad deal). So, probably not interested in the Kindle Fire.
