But still carries a laptop too. For me the Fire is no-sale since my android tab has a camera which I can Skype on as well as a camera for picts and video.
I love Kindle Fire and here is a piece of tip to make you consider this tablet.
For those who are willing to root, flash or side load consider Kindle.
Though it lacks features, it has a fast dual core CPU and IPS screen.
If you are not concern with a tab without GPS, with just 8gb memory and any other feature usually for a high end tablet.. Then you can consider Kindle Fire.
