They'll see an increase in orders. Many who were interested in the NOOK because of Netflix will have another reason to consider Amazon. Unless they're die hard .epub only folks or rooters.

Ah, I don't own an Android device, and I don't have a "Buy now with 1-click" button for any apps. Instead, app product pages on my computer have a "Get this app" button with a box to enter a mobile number or email address.

It'd be nice to be able to see all the apps that are available for Fire before purchasing the device. There's a Some of Our Favorite Kindle Fire Apps page at Amazon, but that doesn't show many.

I sent Amazon an email back in September regarding the lack of good comic readers in the Amazon Appstore (Perfect Viewier, in particular) and how they should reach out to developers to submit their apps to Amazon. Less than a month later, Perfect Viewer (albeit costs $3) was available.
Yes, but I don't think that every app on the Amazon Appstore will be available for the Kindle Fire. For example, apps that use the camera(s) and GPS probably won't be.

I'm a big fan of Aldiko, and I would like to see it on the Kindle Fire. My wife is leaning towards getting a KF for Christmas

Not unless they bump up the storage and add a card reader. Streaming is nice, but requires wifi.

For obvious reasons, apps requiring hardware not present on the Fire probably won't work but aside from those, Amazon has already said in an earlier press release that apps available on the Amazon Appstore should work fine on the Fire.

Possibly for a handful of folks within that target market who are spec driven. But if it's a basic choice between Amazon's stuff and B&N's stuff, there's no match up.

This gives me hope! Mantano is my reading app. I just need Mantano, Dropbox and ES File Explorer to work. Sideloading apps would be a plus!

Could you check ES File Explorer and see if it has a check by it?

Yes, they should work fine. But, they haven't confirmed that they would all be available!

Tell her congrats. I will order mine as soon as hubby gets the rest of the money on my card. I am hoping this weekend so I will have it when it comes out.

It's funny to me that you keep predicting failure for the Fire.

Hundreds of thousands of pre-orders -- a number that will easily surpass 7 digits over the holiday season -- say, you're in the minority.

I really look for ward to trying this out next to my iPad. I love the amazon ecosystem as much as I love apple ecosystem. So I look forward to the best of both worlds. But I'm more curious about trying out the smaller device. Not that I don't like the iPad size, I love it, but just so I get a better sense of what something different feels like.

Did you warn her about the lack of SD card slot and 8Gb of storage?

I love my Ipad, but holding with one hand is difficult (and I've weight trained for 30 years). I think the smaller size will be ideal. I actually would like to have both a smaller tablet and a larger one than the ipad, but perhaps the 2012 Ipad HD will serve that purpose (seeking something better for full size magazines and comic books).
