The latest model I have has the bonus of a front and rear facing camera. It’s not particularly high quality but very handy to have if you need to photograph something quickly to forward by email or upload to Facebook.
Whilst most people are reliant on smart phones I feel like that with my Kindle Fire. I use it daily for internet browsing, Facebook, Emails, quiz games, reading books, apps like calculator, torch, calender and have watched tv on it in the past too. It’s quick and easy to download apps and books for the store too – including many free ones.
Sizewise it’s small enough for carrying in a handbag but big enough to see the screen for reading/watching tv and not too heavy to hold for long periods.
I really couldn’t be without mine and can’t recommend it highly enough.
