    Interesting, hadn't heard much about it until I went to Amazon's page this evening.

    8.9" wi-fi only version for $299

    Its interesting... but personally i prefer the standard android interface and having google's set of apps, so if i get a tablet it'll be something like a nexus 7.

    Yes, nexus 7 is pretty sweet, can't argue with the price for performance. However, the top end kindle with the $49 YEARLY 4G data is tempting. Data must be getting cheap with all the shared programs, $10 to add a tablet and whatnot.

    I was somewhat disappointed with the original fire I bought my dad. Works for him, but if I bought if for myself, I probably would have sold or returned it.

    Be careful with that 4g... its only like.. 250mb a month. You can blow through that pretty quickly.

    I'd prefer base google as well, not having the play store drives people to their store but hurts some sales I'd imagine. People completely plugged into the amazon ecosystem will probably look at it, but as far as books you can read those on anything.

    Does Google plan on releasing a 10" tablet? If there were a hypothetical Nexus 9 or 10, I'd strongly consider it. I just don't think the 7" is a big enough jump up from my phone.
