Here are my first impressions on the Amazon Kindle Fire. It is great for consuming Amazon video and music. The rest of the device is a complex web of expectations and past experience. If you’ve never owned a tablet or Android device before, have a lot of Amazon content, and want a tablet form factor for less than $200, the Fire may be for you. Everyone else has some tough decisions to make.
If you can point to letters and spell, the SlideIT swipe style keyboard for Android OS devices may be for you. It’s particularly great for one-handed text input.
