My son just got me a Fire 7" as a surprise. I'm surprise at all that it does, I would not have purchased one myself, but I'm loving it. I've only had it a day and I've loaded all sorts of stuff and only used about $20.00 for downloads and they even have sample of books you can look at. The 7" seems large enough to me I wouldn't want to carry around anything larger. The Audio could be better but it will work. I was surprised it even had audio. This is the e-mail I sent my son last night.
Kindle Fire is pretty cool.
I have 3 games including MINECRAFT SKIN, PLANTS VS ZOMBIES, ASPHALT RACE GAME (this game is sweet, you turn the Kindle for driving and turbo is right tap and brake/draft is left tap) AND A FREE CHESS GAME.
One book Stephen Kings “Mile 81” and a bunch of Sample books (mostly about Computers I already own most of them but it would be nice to look at them on here)
TV.COM
NETFLIX
PANDORA
Maximum PC (for some reason had to pay for it, but not bad 12.00 a year)
I need to start the e-mail and facebook apps. This is pretty wild, I didn’t know it could do all this.
This will keep me busy, when I have to go on the run somewhere.
Well enough playing for now, I have to charge it up. Haha

Another thought the 9" would be better for larger reading and movie play, but It would be a bit large to care around to like a doctor appointment or something. And I find the 7" almost hard to hold in my hands, I have small hands for even a lady.

That's cool, but you know how they can make the 9-inch Kindle REALLY awesome? Have a HARDWARE BUTTON! It's so annoying to have to keep tapping that stupid bar on the screen just to access the menu. Hell, give it a 5-way button and it would utterly destroy all its competitors.

IF they don't increase the storage and add a memory storage slot, I don't think it will bring in the "tablet" crowd any more than the 7".

Possibly interested but I would have to get one in hand and give it a run thru first.
My younger sister has the smaller version and tells us (her siblings) that she likes it.

I'm waiting for the Kindle Fire 9" version, as I think 7 is just too small for watching anything. But the main thing would be the price, how much would be appropriate for those extra 2"? I don't care about camera so hopefully they won't make it too much more expensive by adding extra stuff I don't care about. Guess time will tell.

I chose the Nook Tablet over the Kindle Fire, but they are the same size. Honestly, I think the 7 inch is just the right size. I have used Ipads before and I just felt they were too large to be convenient to carry around. 7 inches is book-like size which is perfect. So no, I won't be getting the larger version.
