Amazon Kindle is prominently popular for book reading. But, it is surprising that the aforesaid feature is nowhere mentioned in the specifications.
Castillo, 04 Apr 2012is inposible!! the aplications need gbit says 8 GB for storage, or were you refering to 512 mb ram? its not the storage size but the cpu's memory capacitY

Bought to slovakia for 260 euros. Rooted, sporting now CM9. Satisfied for this price.
I bought it in the beginning of December. Root it, enjoy all the android OS could bring us. Amazing tablet with god-like price :D (I bought it for 270USD in Vietnam)
Actually Amazon was right removing GPS, Camera, 3G. I rarely use them (I use it with my HTC Aria). But no SD-card is really an issue !
-you need to root to really enjoy Android OS
-no expanding memory slot
After reading the specs and review, I can safely conclude this is a gadget for home use only and just to obtain infos. No wonder it's called kindle, it's for kindergarten.. a dual core is wasted in this device.
Any China made Android device is cheaper and can do more, at least with a 3G SIM card slot.
Looks like this is just a tablet for online Amazon purchase catalog. It should be given away FOC then!!
yeah 130 euros in europe and usa but about 650 Turkish liras (300 euros) in Turkey, wow that's fantastic :( and considering Amazon is not supported here, that is a very ridiculous price :( and unfortunetely Android Market isn't open either..But as a device, it's really good, the screen, chipset and other specifications are just quiet impressive but the price really fcked up everything..I mean u can buy a Samsung tablet (doesn't matter which one is) for that price! :(
Bought this back in Nov on a trip to US, great little thing. Nice to see books in the bookshelf and recipe books have colour pictures which is great. WiFi synchronisation is seemless, updates even without requesting.
Only a few bug bears like screen glare (bought 2 crappy anti glares so far that don't even stick), limited accessories (i.e screen covers) and no access to apps yet but i'm sure once its released in the UK those issues will resolve.
The web browser is a bit glitchy, crashes quite frequently, the pages flick around in size but if i'm at home i'll be using my laptop anyway so just don't bother with the browser.
would definately recommend this!
Currently using this one. Worthy buying for an assured quality product
