New Kindle Release Day

Today is a big day – the new Kindle Fires and Touch will be delivered to 16,000+ retail locations this morning, and should also start arriving at your doorsteps if you pre-ordered from Amazon today and tomorrow.  There’s been a lot of flak of how the retail locations were getting the Fire and Touch a week ahead of the pre-order folks, which prompted Amazon to change the shipping schedules and trumpet yesterday via press releases how they were shipping them early.

I wouldn’t call it “early” if WalMart and BestBuy receive it before I do – especially since I paid extra for one day overnight shipping!

Anyway, the new devices are out.  What do you think?  Is the Fire a worthy competitor to the other tablets out there?  How neat (or not) is the new Kindle Touch?  How do you like them?

    I agree 100%… I paid the overnight charge to have mine early as well and when I was reading of the retail locations having theirs 1st, I was not happy! So excited to get mine today! I am expecting my new kindle touch and fire early this pm via UPS!
