As an author and a technology guru, I can tell you that there are a number of reasons that my favorite tablet happens to be a Kindle Fire HD. I think it’s a great value for the money (and I happen to own a number of tablets due to the work that I do; the one that I pick up most often happens to be my Kindle Fire HD.) It’s rugged, user-friendly, sports a spectacularly vivid display, has great built-in speakers, and Amazon’s customer service has, in my experience, been flawless. (And no, they are not paying me to say this.) At any rate, you can read Kindle books on a variety of devices, but if you happen to be in the market for a great and affordable tablet, my recommendation is that you consider one of these.
