"I will not, however, replace my Fire with a Nexus. For my needs, it's an incremental improvement over a device I am very pleased with"
For me it always been about the apps
themselves not the platform
My KF is running every Android App that interests me via sideloading
I Dont particularly care wether its on
"gingerbread" "ICS" or "jellyBean"
"I wonder if the author of that article will be trading in his Nexus for something else?"
Probably, some people **Need* to have what ever is new & hyped
