Amazon’s exciting new Kindle Fire Android tablet based eBook reader was released on Tuesday 15 November. Some people were lucky enough to get their pre-ordered units a day early, on Monday.
Alas, although I ordered mine literally within a few minutes of the units going on sale, it didn’t arrive until 6.55pm on Wednesday – a very disappointing result from a company that prides itself on its competency managing its mail order business.
So was the Fire worth the long wait? Should you buy one too? Or would an iPad or perhaps even a Nook Tablet be a better choice? I have already half answered that question in an earlier three part series on the new range of Amazon Kindle eBook readers, and now supplement the earlier theoretical analysis with further observations based on hands on experience during the last 24 hours.
Please now visit our review of the Kindle Fire to get answers to these important questions, although – as always – the real answer depends as much on you and what you’d use it for as it does on the device itself.
