I have a rooted Nook Color, running Android, so it is very much like the Fire. The Fire has goodies that no one, sorry iPad, can top. With the Fire you get a month free of Amazon Prime which gives you the Kindle Lending Library. Every month for free you can download a book and take as long as you’d like to read it. Think of it like Netflix. Think of it as your local library but you don’t have to go there and you don’t get chastised for returning the thing late. With Amazon Prime, you also get streaming video and Amazon offers a ton of movies and TV shows. You also get free 2 day shipping on anything from Amazon.
If I didn’t have the Nook, I would get a Fire. And reading on one of these instead of a paper book is great. I don’t understand about the book smell people complain that’s missing. There are probably close to 100 books on my Nook and it takes up very little space, I don’t care about the missing book smell.
This is the future. Provided after we still have electricity if the nitwit is reelected.
I have installed an RV roof mounted solar panel to 4 golf cart batteries, they sell very compact solar panels that should in theory recharge a tablet, or charge a battery that will hold the charge to then recharge a tablet.
I doubt that will be an issue for a device that draws very few watts, now something bigger like a full sized PC and monitor or even a small LCD TV is different. Just depends if a person has some basic deep cycle battery equipment in an RV, boat or camper. Or even just a modern power tool.
But a topic like this doesn’t belong here. I’m just curious to what point this Kindle Fire can be utilized, could a person access FR and post comments?
