I LOVE my Kindle Fire! The size is great for putting in a purse or bag. It's not too big to hold comfortably, either, but the screen is large enough to watch videos. I have tons of books on it, and also like to use it for reading documents and articles that I've downloaded off of the net, which brings me to my next point. My only complaint about it, if you can call it that, is that I wish it had 3G/4G capability. It's not a deal breaker, but would be a nice feature. If there were more apps for it that would be great, but that's not what I bought the tablet for, so it isn't a concern for me. However, what I really love about my Kindle, is the screen sharpness and the sound on it is phenomenal! I've used it almost daily for years now and so far, it's held up well. There was only one point recently, were there was a short while were it seemed that the on/off switch wasn't working properly. If I remember correctly, I worked around that by powering the unit off and then turning it on again. Overall, I'm really pleased with my purchase, so much so, that I recently wanted to buy one for a friend. Needless to say, I was quite peeved to find out that they're not available to ship to Canada anymore!

I have been hearing about how wonderful Kindles are for several years and decided to buy the latest Kindle Fire HD to use in my classroom. The price point was great, much more affordable than an iPad, and I was very keen to utilize the Immersion Reading which syncs a Kindle e-book with excellent audio book recordings available from Audible. I have purchased probably close to 40 Audible books in the past few years and they are fantastic.

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.

The tablet works fine, etc., but I am quite dissapointed that the features I thought I'd be getting are not available to me as I am Canadian.

Im sure this Kindle is great - if you live in the States. Many of the functions that we wanted to use this product for were not available to us in Canada, so we returned it.

No stars and worse. How can Amazon be so good at so many things and NOT ADVISE CANADIAN CUSTOMERS THAT THE AUDIBLE BOOKS WILL NOT WORK ON THEIR KINDLE FIRE. PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, PERHAPS ADVICE AND PERHAPS A SOLUTION????

I had the American version of kindlefire, a gift from a sister in Fl who put family in both countries in the allotted # for a group, which must be on one account. I left that account, as my other sister in BC w me, gave me the bigger Kindlefire HD model for Xmas. When I went to check out movies, videos, games, music, apps...I couldn't access or purchase because I was in Canada. I also found out, the books were much more expensive...I started w a kindle reader when they came out, in the USA so i know, I read 154 books that yr.

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.
