What I really would like is a versatile reading machine with a larger but reasonably portable screen. With the right software, that could be the Fire. Lacking that, it's not what I want.
I'm beginning to have second thoughts about my own purchase.
Basing your decisions on what a CS person says is rather naive. Most CS folks cannot find themselves in the dark, much less have much knowledge of a device still over a month away from release. Based on how many Kindle apps do have Collections, I highly suspect that CS person was dead wrong.
