    Struggle with the kindle fire proposition. Nexus is better offering at these prices.. with tab3 and nexus 7 (refresh) around the corner surely now is not the time to be buying this?

    The Kindle Fire HD's are fine for what they are. I don't think the SGT3 or Nexus 7 are going to get any closer to closing the gap on the advantages that the Kindle Fire has. I wouldn't have one personally, but for my mum it's fine (she isn't particularly worried that it's some restricted skinned version of Android). It still comes with a pretty good app marketplace (plenty of apps and well priced). It has a better screen than the Nexus 7, and I would be surprised if the new one was any better. It's not just about the resolution, the screen on the Kindle Fire HD is a thing of beauty. The speaker placement on the Kindle Fire HD is also pretty much perfect, something that so many tablets just get wrong (like my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0). I think these are plenty quick, with a decent amount of storage and fantastic screen and speakers. I am not sure there is anything better just around the corner if you value the features that make the Kindle Fire HD what it is... a brilliant media consumption/web browsing device, probably the closest thing the Android world has to a Playbook in this regard.

    I disagree on almost every point you make, my father has one of these and spends most of the time I visit him pestering me for a shot of my Nexus 7 (32Gb/3G) The only thing that I really think it has over the N7 is the HMDI port, the rest is fairly meaningless to most people and the restrictive marketplace + iffy GUI don't really do the hardware any favours. I still don't know why they haven't implemented multiple users on the Kindle Fire, I use it on my Nexus 7 and it works fine, I'm not saying it's perfect by any means but it's very handy, especially when my wife and father are forever running off with it.

    N7 is a vastly more flexible beast than a Kindle Fire, if you need basics yes by all means jump on the KF, but if you actually want to get the most bang for your buck then N7 beats it hands down every time.
