Jakob poohpoohed all 7" tablets which is going too far I think. He should try the zoom function to avoid inadvertant presses.
No volume controls on the Fire is bad though I wish my Vox also had a pause/play button like my Playbook. It is annoying that I need to bring the Vox out of sleep, unlock it and press pause to stop it from playing. The Playbook also stops playing when you unplug headphones; any player do that on the Vox?
