If you visit Amazon today you’ll see this on the front page:
I’ve had the 7″ Kindle Fire HD for a few weeks now and I’m in love with it, so I’ll have to agree with Amazon, the Fire HD is the better buy. Don’t believe me? Just check the specs Amazon points out. Sure for $130 more you’ll have a wider range of apps to choose from (the smaller selection of apps available for the Fire is its only downfall in my eyes), but just look at what you’ll be missing out on. The Fire HD’s screen is stunning. Don’t believe me? Just play with one in a store. Watch a movie, view pictures, read a magazine. It’s a downright amazing screen. The speakers on the Fire HD are even better. The sound quality is great, and it can actually get pretty loud which is a nice improvement over the original Fire.
Don’t think I’m just hating on Apple. I use (and love) a MacBook Pro and iPhone 4. I just think Amazon makes the best tablet for me.
Hey, you gotta use the device that works best for you. I don’t have any problems with any of Apple’s products, but I’ll probably still end up with a WP8 phone over an iPhone simply because it’ll end up being better integrated with the Xbox Infinity when it launches next year. So for me, the lack of apps and other functions that make an iPhone awesome won’t bother me as I’ll be using more Xbox functions on my phone anyways.
