After a bit of dithering earlier I had come to the conclusion that I would buy an 8.9 inch, but Amazon have scuppered my plans there and I will have to settle for the smaller screen.

I like shiny new things Smile



Looks like they come with adverts too, bah!!

I've got a Paperwhite on order from the US. Will cancel if the UK one releases before.

I'm not sure if I'll get one just yet especially with Apple due to announce something next week, but a couple of 7" iPads or Kindle Fire's might creep onto my christmas shopping lists this year.

Pre-ordered here too. B'day is a week before they are released and I had £100 in vouchers, WooHoo, how could I not Smile

Those covers a bit fugly though, tan! bleurgh, honey yellow, not for me, Black goes with nearly everything, very sensible and sobre, where's the fun in that?.

Apple couldn't stand a chance. They lost me as a customer when I got my ipod shuffle and I then found out how restricting they are (no drag and drop! PFF!)

The only other thing I had considered was a Nexus7.

32gb HD Ordered! I feel it will do the things I want it for in a style I had not really expected would be the case- music, films, magazines and web. I think I may find the app selection a bit restricting but if it is popular enough I am sure things should come on stream. The quality of picture and sound seem to be trend-setting and sold it to me.
That is a good book which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.

RE: Pre-Order Kindle Fire HD UK

Cancelled! A night's sleep has helped me realise that the 'cobbled' version of Android in the Kindle Fire is a definite downer. It restricts the apps available to just a few and there is no Sky Go or IPlayer for example. I have gone for the Nexus instead. I love the quality of the hardware but the software makes it too inflexible for me.

iPlayer definitely works on the older Kindle Fire, haven't tried Sky Go though.
