Whatever works for you. I'm just saying 3G Kindle does have its uses, especially seeing as how it works practically worldwide, for free.

Google Sky is cool. Do you have the JSUNnet app? It's for the Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, & Neptune Interplanetary Library System. They have a huge ebook collection (about 79 trillion titles) with any title instantly available in the language of your choice. And they reciprocate with all OverDrive libraries.

That only works if you have a 3G subscription and access to a 3G network. Because I doubt Amazon will supply a tablet, with 3G, in the same way they have a 3G Kindle...

Let's hope it has at least a dual core. Anything less is completely inadequate for 2011.

Ya'know, I almost went ahead and told that joke just to get it out of the way.

Well, they have kinda. The Fire does have Whispernet so you can do all the book related activities. You can also stream video using it. Whether you can browse is unclear.

I wish I could trade my Kindle 3 for a Kindle touch. Since my main use for the Kindle is as a free global browser. I really would love the touch screen. Since navigating with the keyboard is a hassle.

The Fire has Whispersync, which allows for syncing across devices and the cloud. It does not have Whispernet, which is 3G.

I won't be getting one, and not just because most of them won't be sold outside of the US for a while. I'm still happy for them to keep the competition on their feet.
