"What do you think, besides that these are "not a deal"?"
I think it's good to be the king, anybody else would have been crucified posting this ;-)
I also think there are too many 7" tablets out it's giving me a headache, and I'm sick of waiting. Waiting for Target to clearance the old Fires, waiting for a Google Nexus or Tab sale, waiting for the iPad mini. I bought an iPod Touch last July, and though no one ever calls it a tablet I've been really using it alot and would like a bigger 7" screen, I think 9" or 10" would to too big. So the Kindle Fire HD 7 is close to being purchased right now. Not the revamped Fire though, no way, no how. I'm a CAG, but the revamped Kindle Fire (shoudln't they have at least called it "The New Kindle Fire" or KF2?) just doesn't look compelling for saving $40 over the HD: better screen - 1024 x 600 vs. 1280 x 800, longer battery - 11 vs. 9.5 hrs, storage - 8GB vs. 16GB, plus a camera, better processor, sound and Wi-Fi. That's a lot of extra stuff for only $40 more. Heck most companies charge you an extra $50 for only the extra 8GB.
I would like the Nexus's GPS and the Tab's IR port, so nothing is perfect, or a $250 7" New iPod Touch since I've purchased so many apps I'ld lose switching from iOS, but looks like I'll be buying the 7" HD.
Thanks for posting CheapyD, I'm sure somebody will talk me out of buying one.
