Amazon Kindle Fire or Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet.
First off, I do own an iPad. However, I do not find reading enjoyable on the device and would highly prefer to have something exclusively for reading. Originally, I was going to choose the Kindle. This was mostly because of the price. However, the new Nook Tablet is marketed at the same price. I also prefer the…
Kindleeeeee!!!!!!!! I’m on it as i type. Its a great device, the book quality is just, i love it. There is night mode and everything. Its smaller then the nook but they both have the same screen size. If your an amazon prime member (which i am) you can get some books for free! You can get apps for free and you can also get magazines and such. T.v and apps. Its comfortable to hold when reading and has audio books as well. Long batery life too. And i don’t understand why people complain about the 8gb of memory. I have about 30 gaming apps on my kindle with pictures video and at least 20 books along with a bunch of songs. I’m not even a quarter of the way through my memory yet.I’m going to be honest, it depends ob your personality of what you like. I *** going to go with the nook but then i saw the fire…. and i just fell in love. Try going to target and they should have them.on display, that’s how i chose.
So, I’m pretty certain I’m going to get a Kindle Fire…but I have a few questions. I’m only 20, but I’m a bit lost when it comes to all the phones and iPods…and other gadgets. So…How much is Kindle Prime?And to make sure…you can buy books without Prime? and borrow via local library?Can…
– You have to pay just about 79 bucks/Year- Yes you can read books without prime- Yes you can watch movies via netflix- Just like any other app store or book store… Both kind of apps are available, some are for free while some would cost you.- If your music is not DRM protected then you can… (iTunes songs would need conversion)Here I found some interesting info on Kindle fire:http://budurl.com/KindleFireReview

Kindle fire questions.
How do you get books or magazines onto a kindle fire. Also which is better a nook color or a kindle fire? Thanks 🙂
Waiting, waiting, waiting for the UnTruth troll to show up. Must be busy making up new “facts” to use. lolBooks and magazines are easy to get. Just click on Books or Newstand at the top, and then go to the Store. You’ll find you can get many books for free, and you’ll almost always get a free sample chapter to help you decide. As a new Kindle Fire owner (lucky you), you get 90 days free for some magazines, as well as a free book per month, with the Amazon Prime membership. That’s free the first month and $79 per year, if you choose to continue.With Prime, you’ll also have unlimited access to Amazon Prime videos. Videos, Music, & Apps are available from Amazon’s Video, Music, & App Stores, something that Barnes & Nobles can’t match yet. As a matter of fact, Barnes & Nobles is considering selling off the Nook division, as the company is in serious financial trouble. Not the star I’d wish to hitch my wagon to.http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2012/01/05/b…http://www.businessweek.com/ap/financial…By the way, any books you get on your Kindle fire will also be readable on your smartphone or computer with Amazon’s free Kindle App.
Kindle fire HD and watching tv.
I’m going to get a kindle fire HD soon, and I was wondering how the tv viewing portion works. Is it free? I’ve heard about some annual fee for more content, but I’m not sure if the tv stuff falls in to the category.
To watch video on the Kindle Fire HD, you will need to find a source of video. That could be Amazon itself, Netflix, Hulu Plus, etc. Pretty much all the content choices cost money, either in rental fees or subscription fees.Amazon itself offers a yearly subscription called Amazon Prime for $79. It includes making thousands of movies and TV shows free to you, plus borrowing 1 free book a month from a limited selection, plus free 2 day shipping on any product sold by Amazon (not it’s affiliate merchants).The Kindle Fire HD also can be used as a way to stream video to your TV via an HDMI cable.
Kindle fire … how versatile.
My sister doesn’t use her kindle fire much anymore and has been talking about giving it to me. Of course, I would be quite happy to accept, but I would also like to think I might actually use it.Do you have familiarity with the equipment? Can you download things onto it that don’t come through …
I still have my Kindle Fire although I don’t use them much since I got my Nexus 7 which I highly recommend.Yes you can install third-party apps on the Fire. You do have to go into Settings>Device and Allow Installation of Applications From Unknown Sources.Perhaps you might also find an app called SnapPea very useful.
Amazon Prime with Kindle fire vs Nook Tablet.
I really like the interface of the Kindle Fire and the design for the Nook Tablet. But I’m still boggled on which one I should get. My main concerns are selection of books, features, and price for its selections.- Amazon has more eligible to read for free books during the duration of Amazon’s prime…
I received a Kindle Fire for my birthday in December. At first I absolutely loved it. It’s a perfect size and weight for reading and downloading books is super easy. I’m not quite sure how the Amazon membership works though as I have just been downloading the books as I go. Why I say “at first I loved it” is because we bought our kids Vizio tablets for Christmas and now I find myself feeling a tad jealous. We got them on sale at Costco for $189, $10 cheaper then the Fire. I don’t think they run that cheap normally though. The Vizio has an 8″ screen which is just a tad bigger then the Fire but weighs and feels about the same. My daughter is an avid reader and is still able to download any books she wants. My biggest complaint is the tablets come with the Android Market and my Fire does not. I find that I am using my Fire more and more for daily internet needs but it is not as user friendly as my kids’ tablets. They can find just about any app they need as well as download books. Where as I am limited to using the Amazon App Store which has by far way less apps compared to Android Market. Their tablets have almost replaced their laptops with the exception of typing up reports and homework. A laptop keyboard is much easier. Also the Vizio comes with the in-fared so they control almost anything by remote. My son has his whole room set up to where he can sit on his bed and control his TV, his PC, his stereo, etc. and not have to switch remotes. I don’t know much about the Nook but as far as wanting an E-reader/tablet, I would suggest looking into true tablets. Hope this helps and good luck!
Alternative to Amazon Prime.
Please read before answering.For the life of me I cannot find any other monthly or yearly membership sites for Kindle compatible books. We bought my mother an e-ink Kindle for Christmas. Amazon’s $80/yr Prime membership only offers one “free” rental a month. That breaks down to $6.67 per book…
if your lucky your local library has an ebook lending program likely using OverDrive.http://www.overdrive.com/if she likes indie authors you could buy through smashwords and like Amazon does have some freehttps://www.smashwords.com/sorry, I don’t think a monthly ebook subscription exists yet no matter how may avid reads (unlike me) have begged for one.
Some help please: How do I connect my Kindle Paperwhite to my Amazon account and sign up for Kindle Unlimited (if necessary to read ebooks).
I am an Amazon Prime member, do I still have to pay in order to read ebooks on my device?
1. You need a Wifi (wireless internet) connection to register your Paperwhite. Ask your home internet provider if you have Wifi. If yes, find out the network name and WEP (password) for your Wifi network. If you don’t, then ask how much it will cost to get Wifi. OR if you have wired internet, you can buy a Wifi router and connect it to your wired internet and set it up to create your Wifi network and choose your own network name and WEP/WPA2 password for it.if there is no way for you to get Wifi in your home, then to register your Paperwhite you’ll have to go somewhere that has free Wifi for you to use, like a Starbucks, a friend’s house or maybe a public library. And for downloading (or returning borrowed) Kindle ebooks, you will need to go there again (though it is possible to download your Kindle ebook purchases to a computer and install them on the Paperwhite using a USB cable).Then to connect to Wifi, you turn off Airplane mode on the Paperwhite (in the top bar toolbar you can access by touching the top inch of the screen). When presented with a list of networks, choose YOUR Wifi network and carefully (case-sensitive) enter the WEP/WPA2 password.2. Once connected to Wifi, you can register the Kindle to your Amazon account. The Kindle will then download a list or cover pictures of all of the ebooks your Amazon account owns. To access them choose “My Library” on the home page, pick “All”, touch books to download them over Wifi. Then Choose “Downloaded” to view what is ON your device and ready to read. Note that the new style front page of the Paperwhite is pretty useless – so always press “My Library” to get to YOUR ebooks. You can read any Downloaded ebook by touching it.3. Prime members get ONE free borrow out of the eligible Prime ebooks (a subset of Amazon ebooks). Kindle Unlimited subscribers can borrow from the million Kindle Unlimited eligible ebooks, up to 10 at a time.Borrowed ebooks can be returned two ways -a. While connected to Wifi, from Home page on Paperwhite: Kindle Store.. Kindle Unlimited… Go To My Library – there you can see your borrows and return them.b. From the Manage Your Content & Devices page at the Amazon website, view Borrows only, pick […] next to one, pick Return.——Any other Kindle ebooks must be purchased (though some have a Kindle Price of $0). Even free Kindle ebooks require a credit or debit card in your Amazon account.
How Does Amazon Prime Work.
I want to watch the current season of How I Met Your Mother (It’s almost over) and I couldn’t find it on Hulu Plus…So if I purchased a subscription for Amazon Prime would I be able to see the season on 1 flat fee, or would I still have to pay for episodes?
Amazon prime is a yearly servicefor $99, formerly $79, you get free 2-day shipping at no extra cost, unless the item is by a personal seller.And you also get prime instant video. Prime instant video works like Netflix.You can watch titles That are prime Eligible at no extra cost because they are included with primebut because Amazon Instant video is also a pay-to-download service like iTunes, you can also puchase titles to watch.You have to pay for the episodes…… if they are not prime eligible titles. if they are streaming with Amazon prime, They’re free with paid prime membershipsAmazon prime also streams eBooks for kindle devices. Like Prime instant video, The they have Ebooks that stream and eBooks that do not. It all depends what’s a licensed prime title and what isn’tAmazon prime can be shared with 4 people.. However those 4 people are only entitled to the free shipping benefits. The streaming video and streaming books are only available to the person paying for amazon prime.How I Met Your Mother season 1 is streaming on Amazon prime. So therefore, with a prime membership, you will not have to pay for the episodes
