Have had the Kindle Fire since Wednesday but not a lot of free time to do much until now. I'm on the wifi at home. Page load time is acceptible. Living out in the country I don't really have options for lightening fast speeds from the phone company & cable is not an option. Book reading has been what I expected, I have a reg e-ink Kindle but wanted to access the web & email too. Trying to catch up on posts with my smart phone is hard my eyes are letting me know I really am 50! it's nice not lugging the lap top out to do mail and on line stuff in bed while hubby sleeps. So far so good.
