  2. George, thanks for the in-depth look at the Kindle Fire. I’ve yet to purchase a previous Kindle, a smart phone, or an iPad. Sometimes I’m a late adopter, but there’s also a part of me that wants to spend significant time disconnected from electronic devices and the Internet.

    However, my girlfriend is very interested in the Kindle Fire, so I’ll send her here to read your review. And who knows, maybe I’ll be converted.

    I have been using Amazon Prime for over a year and I love that service. I live in a rural area, so I use it to order many items besides books.

    • John! So nice to see you here. I love Amazon and use it to order everything from gun sights to Christmas presents for the whole family.

      And, thus far I am so liking the Fire!


    • Hi Carrie,

      Yeah, you can still use it although it may be a bit inconvenient in terms of the streaming videos and such. You would just need to be at a coffee shop or somewhere else with wireless whenever you wanted to download something. I have to say, I’ve read a few books over the last week and I really enjoy the Fire as an e-reader.


  3. Can you get Office type apps for Kindle Fire and have you tried any of them? Stuff like text or Word docs?

    I was thinking it’d be more convenient than lugging a laptop on trips, but still be able to do some writing.

    Does it have a qwerty keypad like the iPhone or Droid? I guess that’s the first thing I should have asked. LOL

      It appears that there are lots of apps for the thing. In a lot of ways it is like a mini-tablet. It does have a qwerty ala ipbone. I don’t plan on using mine in that capacity so I’m not certain how well it would work as a writing medium. If you end up doing something like that I’d be interested in hearing how it goes!
