Kindle Fire HD 4g as a Phone

Is this possible? Fun?

Now that I have decided on a Kindle Fire HD 8.9" 32G w/special offers, the only decision remaining is whether or not to spring for 4g.

What do you all think of the 4g option? What do you use it for?

Just for a grin I downloaded the magic jack app to my fire and nexus. I have a account with them and I wanted to see if my tablets could use my account with out a dongle.

I can say for a fact with wifi I can make calls with my FireHd and nexus with no problem except that I need to be in a wifi hot spot.

I would guess with 3g-4g you should be able to do the same. Magic Jack works but I am not sure what other voip systems would work.

Magic Jack does with wifi.

Good luck,

I wanted the 4G but wen with the non-4G instead. I can get a hotspot cheaper if I need it.

Well, it's $100 cheaper now. So that makes it more tempting, in my opinion.

I think that makes it $399.

I doubt it's usable as a phone easily. I have a non 3G Fire HD 8.9" and it's massive. It's much bigger than the screen because it has a huge bezel around it. So it's even less usable as a phone than most Tablets.
