Just because I didn’t buy my Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 from Amazon does not, in anyway or shape, mean that I do not buy stuff from Amazon on a frequent (and I really don’t want to claim ‘daily’) basis. So, when I saw the new Kindle Fire, at the low-ball advertised price, I was tempted. Not for me. I am a 10″ guy. But Deanna had been angling for a pad and this seemed like a good deal.

Well, the advertised price is a ‘starter’. Once you add an option or two and get a case you are at $90 — BUT that is still NOT bad, ALBEIT this is not a bona fide Android Pad. So there is NO Chrome browser. Instead there is Amazon’s Silk browser. But it was worth a try.

I pre-ordered it and Amazon to its credit had it delivered by UPS on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 — as promised. So we had one on Day 1 of availability. Neat. Actually that was also the case with our first Google Nexus 7 in July 2012. I had pre-ordered that too and it came on Day 1 — as Google had promised. 

So far so good. It is cute. Nice nice. Sharp, crisp display — as they claim. Seems fast too. Amazon Cloud Storage included.

So not a bad buy.

They are offering a 6-pack — BUY 5 get one FREE, for a total of 6. Was I tempted? Aaaahhhhh! Maybe come Black Friday (or thereabouts). Maybe I will get a DOZEN! It would be FUN to give some to deserving kids (and have ONE in the car, dedicated to GPS). SMILE.

I haven’t had time to use it. Just did the above for this post.
But, I can appreciate its merits.
