Actually, when I tried to purchase something, Amazon would not complete the purchase until I authorized the purchase on the device (which I did not do). Amazon sent me an email notification. I really appreciate the security. I will de-register it from my account.

I am considering buying one for myself when I return home to the US in a few weeks - and was very curious about the screen quality, and how useful the device would be while I am in Europe (which is often) - so I was happy to assist my friend. BTW - the device worked exactly as advertised, apps & books download and work fine; no movies, mags, or music available. Love the overall feeling of quality and the screen/speakers! Great value for the money IMHO. Not certain the 7" size works for my uses, may go for the larger model. Haven't side-loaded anything yet.

When I de-register my account Amazon deletes media/apps downloaded from my account (as I understand you). Stupid me that I didn't realize this would happen. But will it leave in media/apps that I side-loaded? Anyone know this? Couldn't find info at Amazon Help. Maybe I'll just try and see.

Unfortunately, no quick wall-charger. I hear it takes a loooong time to charge from a PC.

Thanks for the heads-up.
