Should you buy the Kindle Fire?

If price is a factor to you, you won’t get a better deal for a tablet in terms of features and content.

If you currently own a smart phone, then you know how expensive data plans are, so why would you want to spend on another one?  The Kindle Fire can connect to any Wi-Fi network (they’re everywhere nowadays) and do everything that other tablets do such as surfing the internet, watching movies, playing games, accessing your email, listening to music, sharing photos, etc.

You don’t have to buy Amazon products to surf the internet and you can find many free apps and ebooks as well.

Another great option you get with the Fire, is the choice to purchase an Amazon Prime membership for $79/year  (comes out to $6.58/month) and enjoy unlimited, commercial-free, instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows.

Amazon Prime Members also have access to thousands of books (including more than 100 current and former New York Times Bestsellers) to borrow and read for free, as frequently as a book a month with no due dates, from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.

That’s the beauty of the Kindle Fire.  Not only is it cheaper than other tablets, you also have some many options to do so much more, but they are not a necessity.
