I am getting a tablet and am holding the iPad rMini and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9"(latest model) up as my two options at this point. I know everything about the rMini. For the HDX, I have been on Amazon this morning checking the features/specs/reviews of the device. Wow, everything looks great! EXCELLENT Reviews! 2GB RAM for great multitasking. 2GHZ processor for excellent fluid performance, etc, etc. I am a BIG Apple user/fan. I am actually leaning toward a non-Apple tablet!! The Android App Store is growing too. Call me a looser if you feel the need to.
