I got my Kindle 4 last Christmas, I got my Kindle Fire HD this Christmas, so I have both However, I use them completely differently because each has its own advantages for specific functions.

What I Use My Kindle 4 For
  • Reading Amazon books
  • Side-loading non-Amazon books
  • Reviewing ARCs
  • Sending personal documents to read (fanfic, papers, articles, etc)

Advantages Over Kindle Fire HD
  • Longer battery life
  • Ability to use collections (I have so many books, and from so many different sources, that I need them in different collections to keep track)
  • Focused purpose

What I Use My Kindle Fire HD For
  • Reading comics (Color! Wonderful!)
  • Media consumption (Movies, music, apps, quick time-fillers)
  • Reading the borrowed Prime novel of the month (my free month is ending on Sunday and I won't renew, but it's easier to read those novels on my Fire)

Advantages Over Kindle 4
  • Color, color, color
  • Quick ability to cross-check something online that I run across when reading
  • Easier to buy books on the device

So, I enjoy both of my devices and the functionality both provide me. It's been great expanding my Kindle family. My life changed when I got my Kindle and it's changed again since I got my Fire HD
