My Kindle Fire

I acquired the Kindle Fire last month, and I am enjoying this new Amazon Android device! There is much to like, including its price. Access to music is important to me, and I can get to my library through the cloud.

I'm not a heavy reader, but the color graphics and video display beautifully on the Fire. Though the Gallery app is fine, I would like to be able to view my image library on the cloud. Apps for accessing online photo services are available.

Instant access to Amazon Video library via WiFi was surprisingly fast and easy. Accessing the same videos on my WiFi-connected TV is amazing as well, a plus for our family viewing.

There are a few glitches in the user interfaces of a number of Fire apps. A hard reset was needed after the tablet became unresposive, but it's an easy fix. I can understand that in a first launch device. I do expect improvements in a software update soon.

Overall I am pleased with the Kindle Fire, and would recommend this for many of you who are casual consumers of music, video, and like shopping at I am enjoying the Fire!
