Finally, and I pretty much knew this as well but nonetheless it's frustrating, there is no native app for YouTube.
I don't know what to say, I was hoping this would be worth the money but it has obtuse setting controls, doesn't have any apps that are more than a step above kids toys and has been even made even less useable for anything but lite use in the recent childish changes to the Amazon cloud.
Really my Windows Nokia phone is more robust than this thing.
Save your money get a Windows Surface.
Now, I was aware some (key) services such as the Amazon Cloud Player and Prime Videos are not available to Canadians, however, what I didn't expect was the poor integration with Amazon Cloud Drive. The docs tab shows documents and the photos tab shows photos from your cloud drive and that is it. There is no holistic view of your cloud drive where you can browse all your files. The videos tab does not let you see videos on your cloud drive as one would expect, only pics (and in that sense is not any different from the photos tab).
There are no surprises with Kindle Books. They look beautiful on the screen with the exception of a glowing blue light against white pages around the inside edges of the device (apparently this is not a defect but by design). Although the super high resolution of the screen renders the text sharply, the surrounding glow (similar to an x-ray viewing machine in your doctor's office) is distracting. But I don't expect anyone buying this device for the sole purpose of reading. For occasional reading it is ok. The integration with goodreads (after the recent update) is very minimal but I am guessing that will get better with time.
The app situation is not as bad as I expected, as you can sideload or download any android apk and it should work as long as it is not tied to Google services.Read more ›
The HDX is an Amazon ecosystem powerhouse. It's actually pretty great, according to reviews. One problem though, there is no Amazon ecosystem in Canada! Canadians don't have access to Prime Instant Video so you can forget about all that screen sharing stuff and cool IMDB integration you may have heard about. There is no Amazon MP3, you can't even store your music in the cloud. Even our Kindle e-book ecosystem is incomplete in that we can't borrow books nor do we have access to Kindle FreeTime. Oh, and let's not forget that this year's marquee feature, Mayday, isn't available to Canadians.
Those are just some of the features unavailable to Canadians. And yet, somehow, they feel justified selling this fairly useless item for more than they charge in the US. Wow. Amazon is a big company, they have the capability to make deals with media companies but they don't care. Don't reward them.
If you are looking for an inexpensive tablet, the Google Nexus 7 starts at about $249. If you want a productivity and media powerhouse take a look at an iPad.
As a etailer to Canadians Amazon is fails on the tablet front.

This was a disappointment, it turned out to be more convenient for Amazon than for me. Didn't like how little control I had over interface. Can't upgrade memory. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Kismet
Love this Fire Tablet. I have an older, basic, kindle, for reading books, but it doesn't have TTS, (text to speech). Because I read a lot of books, I wanted TTS. Read morePublished 1 month ago by VMLM
