I’m not really interested in this device but I was able to see it in Staples. Unfortunately, it was locked down in Demo Mode and there was no WiFi.
It’s said Amazon used the template for the Blackberry Playbook for this. There was also a Playbook nearby. The Fire felt better in my hand.
I still don’t know what to make of this device. The lack of card expansion irritates me, especially for a device based on Android (of course, webOS lacks card expansion too, so maybe there’s a clue to the future there?). Overall, it’s not the kind of tablet I envisioned Amazon releasing.
I suppose buying this is a safe choice for people or just irresistible to all those Amazon Prime members. I just have no desire for it or interest in it.
