Default HTC Flyer VS Kindle Fire

It's an extra 100 bucks for the flyer 16gb wifi version, and I'm not sure if it'd be worth it.

I would mostly use it for web browsing, reading stuff on the kindle app, netflix/hulu plus, and mostly just replace a lot of the stuff I use my phone for with something that has a screen I don't have to squint as much for but can still take places.

I originally thought the kindle fire would serve my needs just fine but then I saw that this tablet was out and only 100 more, which fits my $300 budget. I already don't want a nook tablet mostly because I just don't like the way it looks.

I like the look of the flyer and that it isn't so amazon-centric but hear that you can just slap Go Launcher or something onto it and it'll give you a more tablet-like homescreen instead of a kindle bookshelf.

The fire also has a dual-core 1ghz and the flyer a 1.5ghz single core. I'm not sure if the performance is about the same or if one tops the other.

The main reasons I'm leaning to the flyer is the camera (which I hope can run skype or other video chat stuff) and the possibility of a honeycomb update in the future.

Anyone have any experience with the flyer that could recommend it over the kindle fire or anyone who owns a fire that thinks the flyer would just be a waste of money for me?
