    Well i purchased some books on amazon and to my surprise they are not available on my iphone or on my surface. I currently dont have a home computer so the only way i could read was going to the library.

    So i went to best buy looking to buy a kindle e reader and ended up with a Kindle Fire HD.
    Wow the experience is very nice and i just totally like it. Its the 7 inch model and the size is perfect. It has the apps i need. I like jt so much that ill be giving it to my gf and getting a 7 inch hdx myself just for the cameras.

    Anyone have a kindle tablet? Your opinions on it?

    Some features that really save me time are the notes that you can while reading the book. No more writing stuff down. Also the x ray feature is great.

    Of they're not on your device. First you need to download the Kindle app then sync your phone iOS or Android to your Amazon account then you'll be able to view them on your device. There's NO need to purchase a Kindle unless you want to.

    Is your phone linked to your Amazon account? If so you could try contacting Kindle support.

    To answer your original question, yes I have a 1st gen Kindle Fire HD and they are pretty sweet for reading. I love the different settings for reading. My favorite is black with white text followed by Sepia.

    I had the original. I gave it to my dad when I got the iPad Mini. It was nice, but it also had only 8GB of usable space.

    I have a 7" Fire HDX as well as a 2013 Nexus 7 and an iPad 4, the Fire gets the most use as it is very fast and since I'm a Prime member has the movies as well as music included. As a consumption device I think it's really a fine tablet and has all the apps that I use on the Nexus and iPad. If I had to pick the very best user experience though the iPad wins but for price vs. performance vs. features the Fire HDX is very good and is my choice as a travel companion!!
