  • Fullspecs? Where? You are missing Weight, Resolution, CPU, and Memory. Change the name of the article.

  • will this device be able to connect via cable to HDTV screen to view movies, magazines, etc..???

  • Have a couple of questions. Would it play DIVX/XVID (MPEG-4 part 2) or does it only do MPEG-4 part 12 (MP4)? Having never used anything “smart” before, a naive question perhaps: would it be possible to install applications that user wishes or is it going to be locked into whatever Amazon decides to provide?


  • What about GPS? It’s critical to many aps you might want on this thing.

    • Doubt it

  • will future versions have the capability of expandable memory?

  • What is the system memory? 256 or 512?

  • It does not have Bluetooth

  • You don’t need a Kindle to read Amazon Kindle eBooks. You can download the free Kindle Ereader for Windows to your netbook or laptop or desktop and do everything. So why bother with a limited device mainly for eBooks? No reason that I can see!!

    • Looks like it would be good for kids and a score for education in general. We’re talking 200 bucks here people don’t expect a Ferrari when you’re paying for a Pinto!

  • Not really impressed…Gingerbread? Ug. 8 gigs of storage, 512 megs of ram is really small amount especially with no expansion. The only thing I can see this doing is improving android tablet market share which I suppose is good for those of us who own other tablets. Was really hoping for something bit beefier from amazon but guess cant argue with the price.

  • If it doesn’t have HDMI output, USB Port to connect USB 3G, MicroSD Slot and it’s CPU is not at least 1ghz armv7 Cortex then I am sticking to my Meiying M11 (1024*768 IPS, HDMI, MicroSD, 1.2Ghz A8 Cortex CPU, Android 2.3 and fluent 1080p h264 streaming), Zenithink C91 & Aishuo A816 Capacitive. Their cost is also up to $200.
