    1. I'm most excited for the new Browser app. Seems to be an incredible improvement over the stock Android Browser.

    2. Touchscreen page turns are awesome. Looking forward to that.

    (1) What app, game, magazine, newspaper, or other activity are you MOST looking forward to using on the Kindle Fire? I'm most looking forward to Amazon's vast library of available books, even those on loan from my local library.

    (2) What feature of the Kindle Fire excites you the most? The easily portable size. It's big enough so I don't have to squint to read, without being so big that I feel like I'm carrying a laptop around.

    Ability to use my Amazon Prime account with such ease

    I'm excited to finally be able to read my books/e-mail/news sites all from 1 device. Sure I can do some of that from my phone but there's no comparison when doing it from a 7" piece of sexy technology like this ;)

    Looking most forward to Netflix--I canceled streaming because I wasn't using it enough for quality content. If I could use a tablet (I don't own one) then I'd be interested in picking streaming back up.

    The feature? Simply using it as a Kindle reader. I don't own a Kindle either, and a <5-inch phone screen doesn't work as a good reader, for me.

    (1) Most definitely looking forward to using Netflix on the Kindle Fire.

    (2) I hope that the Amazon integration of the app store and kindle apps works as well as it does on my smartphone.

    (1) Mostly Kindle books but the browser is going to be great!

    (2) As far as features go.. it's pretty much a tablet for the price of a reader. Very excited to see.

    1. I'm playing Orbital on my phone a bunch lately, so I"m going to go with that.

    2. The value for the money is by far it's best feature. Of course, winning one would make that value that much greater!

    What I am looking forward to most is trying LogMeIn or other remote software. As an IT consultant.. to have a tiny thing to carry around yet large enough to take remote (unlike the phone)... is stellar.

    I do love the integration with Amazon services.. with that it's probably the first true competitor to Apple... things can only get better

    1. I am looking forward to the reading abilities of the kindle fire, especially since they finally allowed borrowing from libraries. It's going to be hard now with the distractions of angry birds, cut the rope, etc. all on the same electronic device. Must resist playing games and use it for reading mainly.

    2. Videos that I can watch for free using my amazon prime account and my family's netflix account.

    I am looking forward to see how the Kindle Fire works with eBooks like Dr. Seuss, and other interactive books for kids. I am also looking forward to a few apps like "Sound Hound" and "Twitter".
