the kindle fire has a color screen as well and the user interface is a bit more like a tablet pc. and for me .. if i wanted to read on that kind of screen i'd read on my phone (which has my kindle books on it) or my computer. I like the Kindle because of the mat screen, doesn't feel like you're reading on your computer - mine does have 3G/ internet as well.

mine:

Thank you i am so super unintelligent when it comes to tech stuff. i really think i want to get him the fire b/c he is hard to impress (he is a tech guy) and he probably wants all the color and lights LOL but then i hear on GMA today that there will be newer and better out in the spring. So annoying nothing can stop getting better for at least year haha.

My mom is an ME (mech. engineer) and my brother (physicist) recommended the Fire when I told him we should go in and get her a tablet kind of thing. She doesn't need ALL the bells and whistles that may be on an iPad sort of thing, but this does everything she needs, so that's what we got her.

I didn't try it out though. It's still in the box, but it has outstanding reviews!

Random question, Alethia, can you annotate with the Kindle? I like the concept, but I always annotate the margins of my books.
