However, I soon became frustrated on the first day I had the Kindle out of the box as I couldn't find "Audiobooks" on the Home Menu. I also couldn't download the Audible app, which was supposed to be pre-loaded. I searched online for solutions but nothing mentioned worked. So I phoned Amazon support and spent the next hour and forty minutes being passed to 9 different reps from Amazon, Kindle, Audible, a Kindle "specialist", and no one had an answer. They were all baffled. The reps were all very nice and tried to be helpful but apparently none of them had been informed that this feature is not set up on the Kindle Fire HD in Canada. It is a U.S. feature only, which is very strange because I have downloaded the Audible app on my computer, laptop, iPhone, and iPad and they all work fine. And to top it off, when I search in the Kindle Settings and look at Apps Installed, it says that Audible is installed!!! But somehow it has been blocked by Kindle.
So in the end, I have a little tablet that will download e-books and search the web, and not really anything else that's special or remarkable. Too bad because the Whisper Sync and Immersion Reading sound fantastic. Come on Amazon, you're a huge company with lots of resources - surely you can figure this out.
My favourite games were all in view along with hundreds of others, but once I tried to buy, it would begin the process only to stop & advise me it wasnt available in my area (ad lib,)...even FREE ones! All these features, which make the KINDLEFIRE HD new model, bigger & better, was in fact, bigger.
A handful of apps are adding to the few that were given such as weather, heartbeat, others leading to merchandise...
A Cdn friend told me, when I was still on the USA acct & group in FL, when I highly recommended she get a kindle (we both are bedridden w Lyme disease) that Amazon's pricing for e-books were often higher than buying the book, or just too expensive period. And sadly, it is true. As with specials, daily & monthly, Canadians are the poorer relative.
It took a long time for the kindlefire to be sold in Canada. Finally, it arrives, but without the features that put Canada in the Amazon family, which should be without question if they are selling the upscale tablet. Someone told me I could download a game thru Google aps. Why? I'm happy to pay the $1.99 plus X exchange & tax....but I can't.
As a tablet for graphics, colours, efficiency, all that ...it ranks well.Read more ›

This product seemed OK until it was 14 months old - just 2 months out of warranty when it simply packed up without any warning and wouldn't go beyond the boot screen. Read morePublished 9 months ago by swazijohn
