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?
