On the radio this morning they said the Fire will lack what made the Ipad so popular, which is apps. I find that hard to believe.
Initially, that will probably be the case. Android has less apps currently, and Amazon's specific build has fewer than Android overall. However, if anyone can pull together app designers to catch up, it's Amazon. I own an iPad and love it, but this may become tablet #2 in my house.
BTW...I believe that Apple will be adding wireless sync to iOS 5, so updated iPads will have the ability probably about the same time that this comes out.
