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.

Welcome, Balconyrat. Sounds like Santa checked out your Web history hehe

I received my 7 inch a few weeks ago and am still enamored. Is this your first tablet?

Thanks Betsy for the feedback! Yes, the screen is wonderful on the Fire. I can just imagine that the 8.9 size is even better. :)
For the new, happy owners, there are lots of free apps. I also get a kick out of immersion reading - buy audiobook & ebook. Open up the book, press the arrow, & watch the words highlighted while the narrator reads. You have to have the black lettering on the white background to see it. Music sounds wonderful as well.

That thing is the size of a freaking iPad.
Which is what interested me; I'm looking for a viable alternative to my iPad.

Well its a bit smaller than the ipad, and lighter.  ;D. The width is smaller that is. Hubby likes the size of my fire better than his ipad 4 or whatever the number is now.
And for me, I am now having a ball playing all the fun games that were just a bit frustrating for me on the original 7 inch fire.
I am amazed at all the things I can see now in the hidden object games. Even games I already played. Oh look, there is a cat, I never saw that one before.  :D

I am baffled how people can play these on a phone.  :eek:

Now if someone could just invent a battery that charges itself, like whenever.  :D

I keep having the plug it in all all the time because I use it so much.  :p
