Nice screen, perfect weight, and good for what it does.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD
Advantages: Lightweight, great screen and sound
Disadvantages: You don't get a proper wall charger
I decided to buy a kindle instead of a Samsung Galaxy tab, mainly due to the price (£229????) and haven't been very disappointed.
Firstly the price at the moment is good, there are plenty of offers on, and I got mine from a supermarket.
The HD screen is beautiful, if you watch films etc on it, you will not be disappointed! The speakers are good for such a small device, and the balance from the sound is surprisingly good. There are quite a few good apps you can download, and the web browser is rather good.
Now one of my main bugbears with this device is that is doesn't run flash. Now I know flash is being made obselete, but that still makes accessing sites that use flash a pain. I play browser games, and you cant do it without the latest flash. I have read internet instructions on how to get flash installed, but it is not the current version.
The camera is ok, not the best in the planet, but I didn't expect it to be, and I wont even really be using it.
Its responsive, sounds great, looks great and holds a charge for ages! One small thing to note...you dont get a wall charger with it...you get a mini usb to usb cable which your'e supposed to buy a kindle power acessory seperately. Luckily I have a plug you can plug usb into to convert to mains so I dont need it.
Summary: Good for general use, reading, browsing, and music.
