What's your opinion? Kindle Fire versus Acer Iconia
I have 3 kindle fires that I picked up for xmas for me and the 2 kids. So that is 600 shipped. Now they have the Acer Iconia 8gb 10.1 for $243 (with taxes).
I like the smaller form factor of the amazon, and I would imagine it is much more stable. On the other hand the Iconia offers so much more... or does it?
I use Rhapsody, Pandora, Netflix and so on. Aside from the bigger screen, the only REALLY big plus for me is sd card. The only thing that I would be nervous about putting on the cloud are my MP3s for the beatles that I ripped from my CDs.
There is another difference. With the kindles, I got 12 months 0% interest. don't have that option with the iconias as you can only order one per credit card.. as it is limited to one per person.
Part of me thinks that they are going to upgrade the OS anyway in 4 months +/- so as not to worry about it being gingerbread. And in a year, both will be outdated anyway.
Also I am an amazon prime member. so I get 1 free app a day.
