Just cashed in some AMEX points and landed Mrs. Piob and myself his/her 7" Fire HDs. They arrived yesterday and I've only have a few minutes to play around. So far, so good. Nice screen, video streaming works well, and the best speakers I've heard on a tablet device yet. I installed a 3rd party launcher on my first Fire and will mess around and try installing one on this HD soon. Apparently Amazon bragged the HD Kindle would be "unhackable" but it seems this was empty boasting.
