questionsi'm thinking of buying a kindle fire hd 8.9", any…


Nothing really.
iPad mini is the only other SFF option in that price range and it's under-powerered, considering.
I wouldn't touch the mini right now as it is a stopgap device to keep SFF tablet sales in the Apple camp vs. Google or Amazon.

eta: Maybe a refurb iPad 3rd generation would fit the bill, though.

Has anyone tried Acer ICONIA Tab A700-10k32u 10.1-Inch Tablet or ASUS Transformer TF300 T-B1-BL 10.1-Inch 32 GB Tablet? It doesn't look bad. Which one is preferable?


@pwknowles: I have the 300t and it's a great tablet. Pair it with the dock and it's a perfect tablet/laptop. My wife uses it for school and it's great to give to the kids at night and she can use it to type reports on.


Not sure if you are looking for answers still. My mom wanted an iPad. She's not super tech-savvy. I gave her my iPad, and got a used Kindle Fire HD 8.9 (wifi only) for myself to replace it. I'm bummed at my music doesn't transfer, but otherwise, very happy with the Fire. I like that it's a bit smaller. Still hard to get cases and other accessories though. Good luck!
