Kindle Fire 2 Thoughts

What are my personal five favorite things about the Kindle Fire 2?

  1. Price. $159 is really good.
  2. Double the RAM and 40% faster performance is good.
  3. 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.

Kindle Fire 2 is available at Amazon for $159.

  1. Any word if Kindle Collections (from the Kindle 3) will be integral to the Kindle Fire 2? It’s a sticking point for me, as I want a reader first and a tablet second

    • They only showed the carousel and did not mention Folders or Collections. I doubt they will add Folders – they want us buying and consuming, not organizing.
