From the OP link:

Quote:
Its supposed to have 8 hours of battery life before a recharge.
Supposed to have? Isn't Consumer Reports supposed to test to see if vendor claims are true?

Perhaps they feel under pressure from criticism that their reviews are out of date. I would rather they take the time to be thorough.

Quote:
Consumer Reports tested the 7-inch Fire HD, which is the same size as the current Kindle Fire and is scheduled to ship on Friday.
Then where did they get the unit from?

If from Amazon, it's a hand-picked unit and the review is tainted. The current example of how hand-picked units make a difference is the Kindle Paperwhite, which is getting rave reviews from tech journalists despite many here finding their units have uneven lighting.
