My niece and nephew each got one of these so ingot to experience their "web acceleration" turns out if doesn't work so well. When I turned it off and let the tablet do all the work on it's own web browsing was significantly better.
It does have a lot of improvements to be made. I really want a push notification system on it. My mom has been using an ipod touch to play words with friends and she likes to know when someone plays a move. However, currently on the Fire it will not tell you when someone plays a move, or when you receive an e-mail.
This is pretty vital IMO and should be implemented soon.
Just because something is priced to sell doesn't make it a value. I have one as well and can honestly say that if I didn't own other tablets this thing would be a huge let down. I knew before I bought it what it's short comings were but I did not expect to reach the end of the rainbow within the first week of owing it! This is truly an entry level tablet for those folks who do not know much about these type of devices and have very basic needs. I have one but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone other than the very casual of users.
