I have followed this forum for several weeks hoping I might receive a Fire HD 8.9 from Santa. Well, I did! It is everything I had thought and hoped it to be. I am interested in content and was not looking to make my Fire a laptop replacement. I can hardly wait for summer so I can get out on my balcony with this thing. In the meantime, as it snows, I will be playing with this tablet and customizing it to my needs. Keep up the great work with this forum as I'm sure I'll have questions in the future.
