Peter, Exeter, Devon, UK Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great value tablet whose main point is the ereader - but the additional features make it a great addition to home technology. Nice design - good screen and very adaptable touch screen
Bad points:
It is a pity the battery is not longer lasting if you are working on the internet and also a pity that it does not come with a case or at the least a screen cover. These all need to bebought separately.

Jacquie, Brighton Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Lovely visuals, easy to use, compact for carrying and great value if you don't want to pay the cost of an ipad.
Bad points:
Many of the features that you want to access here cloud player, daily fre apps for example are only available through Amazon.com which means you have to have an American address. There are ways around this but it is a nonsense that UK Amazon does not yet support Kindle Fire. Sure Apple are laughing all the way to the bank!
