Kindle Question!!

Hi everyone!!

So unfortunately today my kindle broke :( :( so as of now I will be reading my kindle books on my phone..

However, I am looking to get a new kindle! So what are everyone thoughts?

Should I go with the Kindle Fire or Kindle Keyboard 3G (which is what I have)? I really liked the Kindle Keyboard but I don't know a lot about the Kindle Fire..

what are your thoughts? Please comment below!! :)

Ugh, I'm totally sharing in your pain. My Kindle 3G with the keyboard tanked on me a couple weeks ago. But I loved it so.

Here's what I heard about the Fire. It doesn't have that awesome eInk thing that the original Kindle does. So it's got the glare in bright light. Not cool for reading in sunny places. My boyfriend's mom got one for Christmas and she says that the apps on it are so distracting, she finds herself playing Words with Friends more than reading. I'm sure serious readers don't have the same issue but then again, we're all addicted to Twitter or Pinterest or something of the like. ; )

The biggest upside for the Fire is the touch display and the vibrant colors, which you tend to miss out on in the other models.

I suppose I haven't really helped all that much but a little more info on both ends never hurt. Good luck deciding!

Thanks for responding Jessie!! I'm pretty sure that I'm just going to go with the keyboard kindle..I loved mine so much and I'm not a huge fan of touch screen reading haha

Thanks for the response again!!

I have a Kindle Fire. I've only had a few months but I'm really loving it. Of course use it to read, but I also love using Netflix and apps as well.

I bought the Kindle without the keyboard, after having one with the keyboard and I don't miss it at all. I love my Kindle and would only purchase a Kindle fire if I was looking for a portable, small size computer with all of its functionality. If you're looking for a reader, I would definitely get one of the other Kindles. I love both of mine!!

Ohhhh. I hate when that happen. I have the Kindle without the Keyboard and I love it but my sister have the one with the Keyboard and I also love that one. It's hard to decide but I'd recommend you buy Kindle with the keyboard.

My kindle 3g keyboard was also broken last year. Loved it but still haven't replaced it because I barely owned it for a month before it was broken and then there was news of the kindle fire and kindle touch right after. My friend has a kindle fire which she loves despite only being able to download movies, shows and apps when we are in the states and the wireless being pretty much crap. She mostly if only uses it for reading books which I catch her doing all the time, it's true it doesn't have the e-ink screen which is what I loved about the kindle keyboard so you get glares in bright light but you also get annoying reflections on the screen from a regular indoor lighted room. The kindle fire does have a backlight though which means you can read in a dark/poorly room without the use of a lamp or book light which I think is a plus. What I also didn't like about the kindle keyboard was that it wasn't a touch screen so I might just get the kindle touch.

Thanks for the response Sandy!! I ended up ordering the Kindle keyboard because I loved mine/I don't really need to download movies and such :)

Thanks for the response!!
