Looks like the OP has abandoned the thread. I wonder if she just meant that she wants to garner support for asking Amazon to continue to offer the occasional upgrades to the original Fire. Even the K3 still gets an occasional upgrade. If she wants the original to get the upgrades of the Fire HD then no way that will happen, but occasional bug fixes and minor enhancements might happen as long as Amazon keeps selling them.
