I will rather wait till the folks in xda do something about the android market in this device...if not, there's always Nook Color around...

The Fire will make it crazy-easy to order from Amazon in addition to being an e-reader, video watcher, music playback tool...

Definitely interesting.

i read the specs on gizmodo... apparently, Fire stores all ur books/mags on the Amazon cloud servers. which means i would need a constant wifi access to read? but, it will run into the problem of Amazon blocking my IP address since (i think) i cannot hide behind a VPN, like my current Kindle3 when buying books. Kindle3 allows me to download the book and read offline.

sigh... i was really happy to see Fire cos it finally allows me to read magazines in full colour. but darn... looks like i have to stick to my kindle 3... :bheart:

isn't kindle3 too small for reading magazine? they cut of the price of kindle down to $79, but kindle DX still $379 :bheart:

No, it backs it up to the cloud, but you can still store locally. If you delete locally, you still have your copy in the cloud.
