That's a pretty krazy price. I use my Nexus 7 all of the time, and don't "need" a $49 Fire, but that's hard to pass up. If nothing else, you could keep it next to the toilet for grunt surfing (<< new Powernoodle word). Its not an Android device, which is a bit of a downer (for me).
lol@grunt surfingI work at the big blue electronics store and there is gonna be a massive push on tablets and Amazon tablets this holiday season. I'm busy as hell overhauling Amazons table and inline sections for that 50 buck tablet and the peripheral items that you'll need for it . Got some nice cases and keyboards for it. i'm ready for that surface pro 4 to drop as everyone suddenly realized the Microsoft Surface Tablet is a mean machine and are trying to copy it. I think my sp3 is the best money i ever spent on an electronic device. < end of thread derailment>
