Product Description
She found a watch. A monster found a plaything.

Looking for love is the last thing on single mother Phoebe Jackson's mind. She's desperate to find a way to make enough money to help her sick child and will do anything to save her. Finding an expensive bejeweled watch is just the lucky break she needs, and her need to save her child overwhelms her ethics and she decides to take it.

Unbeknownst to her, the watch belongs to the mobster Michael "Fingertips" Contini. Within days Contini discovers she took the watch and confronts her, and soon Phoebe's lured into his world of wealth and power, and finds much much more than she was looking for...

Former cop Brent Greer, Phoebe's ex-husband's best friend, knows Contini's history all too well and knows that Phoebe is blind to how much danger she's really in. Her problems may be none of his business, but he can't stand by and watch her fall ...

Does such a keyboard exist anywhere for the 1st generation Kindle Fire (not HD) in which you can plug into the device's mini-USB port? I've seen so many USB keyboards on Amazon for other android tablets, but they are either:

a) not compatible with any of the Kindle Fires at all or
b) only compatible for the Kindle Fire HD versions

I love my 1st-gen Fire and really want to turn it into a multi-purpose device in which I can use for both reading Kindle books and writing my own books, because it's more portable and convenient than a laptop.

So does anyone know if a keyboard exists anywhere in the world that's compatible with the 1st generation Kindle Fire? Thanks! :D

No, sorry, RM.

The USB port on the original Fire was designed for the Fire to be connected to a computer, not for connecting devices to it.  The lack of ability to connect a keyboard either via bluetooth or USB was one of the major complaints about the original Fire.  It certainly was my major issue.

You may wish to upgrade to the Fire HD.  Amazon will take original Fires in as trade-in.

Well, AMAZON, will pay you as a trade in. . . .you get an Amazon gift card, as I recall when you return it.  On the site search for electronic trade ins, or something of that sort.

Here at KindleBoards, we have a section where people are looking to sell older items or buy second devices, etc.  It's under the heading "KindleBoards Market Place". :D
