Kindle Fire 2 Thoughts
What are my personal five favorite things about the Kindle Fire 2?
- Price. $159 is really good.
- Double the RAM and 40% faster performance is good.
- Not that many improvements.
What are the things I don’t like?
Still looks too boxy. They should have redesigned it. Perhaps that’s asking too much.
Inclusion of Ads sucks.
Will update this post as more information comes out.
