8.9" won't fit a pocketbook

The KFHD8.9-32 won't fit in a woman's pocketbook. Thus, you need a separate case to carry it.

That is why the 7" variety is so good. As long as I go with my wife, I have no problem taking it everywhere.

I agree with everything you say except the battery life. I think the battery runs down way to fast and it should come with a charger. It only comes with the usb cord and it takes "forever" to charge even from my phone charger using the usb. If I try charging from my computer I can count on not being able to read or do anything else all day until it gets the full charge. I love the Kindle Fire HD very much with those exceptions. I was shocked that it did not come with a charger. My Nook Color came with its very own charger and it lasts me several days even if I surf the web. It also charges in about 3 hrs. Although I love reading from my Nook Color I also love reading from my Kindle Fire HD.. Both are excellent products but to me the big thing is not coming with a charger. That is just wrong. To have to buy one separate is not fair. But I would recommend the Kindle Fire HD to anyone who is considering a Kindle product. It does lots of things and I love that no matter what way I hold it the screen will rotate in that direction. The Nook Color rotates but to wide screen or Portrait only, not all the way around from ever single side. lol I do love them both because my hubby got them for me as anniversary gifts. Last year the Nook Color and this year the Kindle Fire HD.. Both are wonderful. I am still getting use to the Kindle and it should come with a manual that explains everything. Not just a short booklet like that only explains the very basic of basics. Got lucky and did find a free copy of a help manual a few weeks or about a month ago that helps a lot.

I am still disappointed in the battery life of the Kindle Fire HD though . I sure thought it would last longer and I wish it had a place to add a micro card like the Nook Color has. That would make it more awesome. Then you could add as much space as you need..
