I’ve been eying up either a Kobo Glo or a Kindle Paperweight as a gift for my girlfriend this Christmas. I own a Paperweight myself and think its brilliant for what I want it for. Normally I wouldn’t have given the Kindle Fire much of a look in, as I am really looking for an eReader right now. But my girlfriend could also do with a tablet, because, quite frankly, she uses my smart phone way too much, and it’s gotten to the point where I want to get her a device just so she will leave mine alone–I’m sure I’m not alone on this.
So this is essentially what the Kindle Fire HD does, it’s an eReader and a tablet. While I think it’s slightly inferior to the iPad mini and again not as good an eReader as say a Paperweight (mostly due to the backlight issue and e-ink being easier on the eye) it does cross off both of the items on her wish list in one foul swoop. Of course I wouldn’t even be considering this option if it weren’t for the amazing offer Amazon ($50 off) is giving away today, making the 7″ version remarkably more affordable. So if you’re in the market for a tablet this winter season for yourself or as a gift then this might be right up your street.
Will you be getting one on Cyber Monday? Have any Feedback?
