Good evening.

I've zero interest in the Fire - it's not targeted at me and above all, I'm old fashioned, locally stored high quality vid is my choice - but I can certainly see it succeeding.

The only thing I struggle to get my head around is the combo of low storage capacity and wifi only. Streaming/cloud is a big part of Amazon's strategy but doesn't the lack of 3G seriously hamper this functionality? I can understand the reasons of it being omitted - hardware cost and perhaps people's unwillingness to get tied into another data plan - but there being no option of the upsell surprises me. 3G option to come later mayhaps?

Just wondering: do we really need a separate forum for this? We could just have tags to indicate the genre of thread topic, assuming we could come up with a reasonable set of them (K1, K2, K3, K4, KTouch, KFire). Topics of general Kindle interest of course would not need a tag. This seems to work ok on the Nook and Apple forums, and I like not having to scan 2 or more forums when 1 will do..

Just a thought, belated though it may be.

You say you can understand, but I think you're not taking the numbers into account. A standard 1080p, ONE-HOUR tv show runs roughly 1.2gb. The same tv show in 720p is still 400mb. Never mind movies. With typical data plans running what...2-5gb / mo?

You're not going to see anything like that until there's true, unlimited, cellular (or other 'anywhere' tech) plans available.

The Kindle fire really doesn't seem to have an awful lot in common with the eInk Kindles though. It seems much closer to a Nook Color, Galaxy Tab, etc... An LCD tablet running a Kindle app. The Nook Color does now have a separate sub-forum.

If it were me, I'd place the Kindle Fire and Nook Color in the Android Forum.

As the OP says we did consider that... but felt more main stream users would just look for it in the Kindle and/or Nook sections.

It's all good. People will find the right section no matter where they're placed.
