My wife broke down and gave me my Christmas present early the other day. I ended up getting a Kindle Fire from Amazon. It really is a neat device and does almost everything I really would use a tablet for.
But here is the best thing:
It does online gambling, and it does it very well!
I was playing at High Noon Casino via the Flash interface and found the device to perform very well. I was impressed with the speed, reaction the buttons had with the screen and overall experience. Video slots performed flawlessly and card games were speedy and easy to wager chips with. (I zoomed in on the screen a bit, but it worked well!)
So if anyone is looking for a cheap tablet, you may want to check out the Kindle Fire. It does a lot of things that you would expect from a more expensive tablet, and really is quite neat. I will share more when I get more time in with it!
Any casinos you guys want me to try out and show how it works?
Check out my Casino Listings user blog!
Aww what a good wife! And now you can get another present at xmas time.
Sounds like you made the right decision in the end vs the ipad, especially if you can gamble on it!
Never mind the casinos, how does Casino Listings and the games we have here look?
Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

I'm not going to lie, the site looks freaking outstanding. Flash loads up on it and everything I have seen loads quickly and easily. I guess this silk browser is going to keep speeding up as Amazon's servers learn more and more about the sites you visit (the browser offloads some of the processing of websites to Amazon servers). It is quick.
The keyboard is easy to type on and I would say it is equal with the iPad in that aspect. I haven't played CL games yet, but will give it a try tonight.
I really am digging the Kindle. It does a lot of what I would want a tablet to do and is surprisingly versatile. Of course, I don't expect what I would from an iPad, but I have a laptop to handle anything I can't do on the Kindle.
Oh, and I just got my iPhone 4s via Fedex today! So I have that to play with now too.
I ended up reading a review of the Fire where the reviewer sounded a little disappointed. Maybe their expectations were too high. They said its great though if you have an Amazon account to rent shows and movies (no go where I live).
I got me a 4S a few weeks ago. I even managed to sell my old 3gs for over $300 on ebay which was a nice surprise.
Tell Siri to "open the pod bay doors". And keep telling her to do it.
I told her "I love you" and she says "oh I bet you say that to all your Apple products"
But on a serious note the voice recognition is much better than I expected. I find I am using it more and more to set reminders for stuff. I just tell it to "remind me to buy milk tomorrow" etc and it sets it all up for me.
oh, congratulations! I'm so jealous of you
but I haven't decided which Kindle to buy, fire or with inkpad, so that it would not hurt my eyes
Ed, the you are right: You cannot expect the Kindle Fire to do everything an iPad does, but for less than half the price of an iPad, can you really expect it to?
I am a media consumption junkie. I have to have news fed to me at all times. Videos and music must be available, and God knows I need Flash or HTML5 on websites that I visit. I have found my Kindle to do great with all of these features, which is probably part of the reason I am so happy with it.
Another neat thing: the way magazines and books can be delivered electronically is freaking sick! I read Wired Magazine, and the digital format is incredible. Stories regularly include interactive pictures and videos as well as audio footnotes, which is really quite neat.
Being in the US, you can get Amazon prime which provides a Netflix type streaming as well as 2 day free shipping on stuff you order from Amazon. You also get to rent a book for free each month from their lending library. There are plenty of recent books that you can borrow for free too, which is very cool.
Oh, and the Casino Listings games DO work, but the NetEnt games are kinda sluggish. I want to see if I can get those to work better as they are my favorites.
Salivan_genius: I find it easy to read for hours on my Kindle Fire if I lower the screen brightness. If I left it up like I do for everything else it would strain my eyes. However, if I lower the brightness by half, I find it just as easy to read as e-ink.
1 member gave thanks for this useful post: CL-Ed
oh, thanks for telling me about the screen. really helpful, I will consider it while choosing Kindle
i recently got my kindle touch, if you have a lot to read and your eyes hurt, i really recommend e-ink display
I've read many recommendations and reviews about Kindle Fire and in my region many apllications and benefits aren't available :9 so I think I'll by the traditional one
same with me in my region i can't get much of fire opportunities, apart from that i have to read too much and i got the new kindle touch
Yes, me too, that's why I would save money and don't buy Kindle Fire and buy the traditional" one
the only problem is that you can't rotate pdf files in kindle you have to use a program to rotate pdf files and then transfer to kindle it doesn't bother so i love my kindle
Oh, it;s just nothing I would not be so demanding \, just want a good quality of visuals to read and don't irritate my eyes.
Thanks for advices
amazon was really generous when i downloaded kindle software for PC they gave me 3 books as a gift and they have landing library which is a great thing you get books to read without paying anything
I've read that the cost of production of Kindle Fire was 190-210 dollars, so they are just altruists )
I hope you are getting your wife something special. That was very nice of her to give you a present early.
I wish my husband ever gave me Kindle Although I do not have one yet (neither husband, nor Kindle)
but you have CL chips :D
Well I wish you get whatever you need. I thought I was replying, quoting barbadosslim93 but apparently was quoting no one. lol
