    I'm thinking of buying a Nexus 7 table to replace my Kindle. Can it read all books that a Kindle can read? Thanks

    I use my Nexus 7 to read books. I use the Amazon Kindle app. I haven't run into any problems as far as format goes.

    Keep in mind that battery like on a tablet wont be anything near what a regular kindle is.

    From what I understand, the only books you can't read on the kindle app are books from Amazon's lending library (available to Amazon Prime members). All other books are available...

    I'm completely baffled as to why someone would ever by a Kindle Fire.

    Before the Nexus 7 (about a 6-month window) the Fire made sense. Only $200. Android apps. Tablet with access easy access to all things Amazon.

    Now, I would agree with you.

    I read my Kindle books on my Atrix 4G using the kindle app. It sync's everything according to your amazon kindle acct.

    Yes, that is a concern. My Kindle Keyboard (not the Fire) goes forever without a recharge.
