    How annoying...the previous sales were better.

    I'll wait....I might wait til they do a refurb sale on the HD 7" tablet. That's how I got my first Fire.

    The discount got me.  I did it.  :o  ???  Had little desire for another tablet.  Got good health news today so celebrated by buying Fire HD 8.9 WiFi 16 GB with S/O.  :)

    LOL! I just read my post.  I was so tempted yesterday & still am, that my post on the limited price drop was a little too short & sweet. My plan is to save up my Chase credits to get the 8.9. The only thing is that it might take a year at this rate. I have the 7" HD, so I am thinking that I should wait to get an 8.9 next year, when Amazon upgrades the 8.9. I just want it now, to see, to touch, to test out with some image heavy books, like concept maps. The price drop just makes it harder to resist.

    LOL! Too excited to think straight, I wanted to use Harvey's link here, but instead of clicking on the Kindle Fire, I clicked on my usual KindleDailyDeal link here. Anyway, I did it. I can't believe I ordered it. I ordered the 8.9 wifi 32 GB.

    I ordered the 8.9 wifi 32 GB.

    Congratulations!  With or without S/O?

    I got only 16 GB.  I have a Fire 1.  Certainly not a lot of apps.  I am addicted to game Free Cell.  Addicted.  Don't keep a lot of books on it.  And will use to stream free Prime videos.  16 GB should be enough, yes?

    I would think so.  I got the 4G so got 32 (not 64).

    And you may (or not) be surprised at how great books look on the 8.9.. I had a Fire 1 as well (still do actually).

    Congrats on health news, again, too.

    And Toby, excited for you!

    Thanks! Yes, I am so excited!!! The Fire comes tomorrow! I can't wait, I can't wait. I had been going to the Fire's 8.9 page everyday to read the reviews. I couldn't stop thinking about it, as I am a curious type of person. Sandpiper, I got the SO's. They don't bother me. 16 GB's should be okay. I got the 32 GB's to be safe, because I like t have most of my music & Apps & Audio Books on it, & they take up lots of room.

    Mine comes tomorrow too. I bought new MacBook Pro today. Old and new MBPs are at Apple Store (data being transferred). I got out my iPad 1 that I haven't touched in months. It works!  Not bad.

    I got it! It's beautiful! It's thinner than the iPad, & feels a lot lighter than I thought that it would feel. I had to wait until now to play with it. I put in my wifi, so I am officially registered, but it's now downloading new software. It said to plug it in & it could take awhile. I'm going to check it out now. Will be back to report.

    RamThe Hammer - congrates! Let us know how you like it.

    I'm back! I'm using my 8.9 now. I downloaded some books, 1 album (I can't seem to type m p 3 normally.), an audiobook, & some apps. Books look great. I like the double page. That's all I have checked out. Typing is bad. My words change or double.

    My fire was waiting when I got home tonight. Charged it up and tried viewing "Hunger Games" (HD version) Looks and sounds GREAT! Viewed some old TV series (HD version of Star Trek season 1) and it too was very good. I tried setting up my e-mail but not having much luck. I'll try and get it working in the morning.


    So far very pleased with this device.

    Thanks Ann for your help. I went into settings & changed it, but have not tried it out yet.

    I read a book on the 8.9 while lying in bed last night. It was awesome! I like reading on it better than on my PW (cough, cough) & the 7" Fire. Having the larger, taller tablet made me strain my neck less trying to read. I don't have a cover yet, but holding it was also easier. I rest it on my coyle cushion & it also seems to balance better than the smaller size. Also, sepia, with the brightness set on the auto settings was incredible. Was not too bright for my eyes in a dark room.

    If anyone is on the fence on getting an 8.9, I would tell them to get it now, especially with the limited time discount on Amazon, before it goes back to the regular price.

    I am very happy with it too. I have Fire 1 and iPad 1. Never used either a whole bunch.  ???  I'm between computers for a few days, so am using Fire HD and iPad 1 for a lot of what I'd do on computer. Very good. I'll continue to use them more. I like typing on iPad 1 though cuz on-screen keys are bigger. Can almost type like on a keyboard!
