Dana Sciandra reviewing the new Kindle Fire by Amazon

Many of you may have already read my comprehensive breakdown and first impressions of the Kindle Fire when it was first announced back in September. Well, the day has finally arrived and I now have the shiny new device in my hands!

I’ve spent the last week with the Kindle Fire – primarily enjoying my new toy – but also prepping for a video review that I plan to do on the device in the next week or so for the benefit of the listeners. As a result, I have become quite familiar with the Fire and thought I would share many of my thoughts, initial impressions and helpful tips that I have discovered along the way.

Is it an “iPad killer?” Does it perform as advertised? What are its advantages and limitations? Is it a tablet or an e-reader on steroids? How do I work this damn thing?! All of these questions and more are answered in this 1.5 hour segment!

I tried to cover a little of everything, for the benefit of those who already have the Fire and for those who are contemplating whether or not to purchase it. As I mentioned previously, I will be doing a video review soon, as I assume that many of you would rather see it in action (versus hear me talk about it). Hopefully this segment will help to abate your curiosity – for the time being – in addition to answer many of the questions that you might have.
