Well let me jump in with a few questions even though this is an old thread:
1) Wife wants a Kindle which model is recommended these days, is the Fire the one to go with, I also seen some 6" as Olbriar mentioned.
2) Has anyone rooted theirs, and if yes what are the advantages.
3) I don't have to get the eBooks from Amazon, I can load any eBook correct ??
4) Anything else I should know before I go out and buy her one, she doesn't care for a keyboard, but I definitely would want one with WiFi, any other input or recommendations.
5) If you are using WiFi, does it allow you to surf the net also ??
