Last Nights Loading the Kindle Fire HDX

So as my readers may have known I have purchased both of my kids Kindle Fire HDX devices as their Christmas presents this year, my choice was based on the fact they already were very used to their 1st generation Kindle Fires though they both had plug connector issues after their 1st year and one finally would not charge anymore.  The Google Nexus 7 was heavily considered, but I opted against it only because of the truly open nature of Android and found it to be more potentially problematic for my 7 and 10 year olds.  The fact that there are a unfiltered apps and games of all sorts of questionable quality with no quality management, higher degree of malware/adware and other junk against the relative safety of the Amazon Android App store was the deciding factor. This in addition to the fact that neither had SD Card support, if the Nexus 7 had MicroSD card support then I would have chosen it.

So as Amazon still releases 1 free app/game per day, I am busy collecting the last few free app/games that I think my kids would like and will fully charge, pack and then wrap the Kindle Fire HDX devices on Christmas Eve. Almost all the other gifts are wrapped already.

There are a lot of good and better apps for the Kindle Fire HDX already though it still lacks compared to the iTunes app store and the Google Play store, it is coming along and with the Kindle line of tablets being so popular and having so many models I think more game developers will try to get their Google Play versions of the apps into the Amazon Android App store.

I bought some cases which were the i-Blason cases which had a lot of great features for the price, the Origami cases are awesome but far to expensive to get as compliments for the Kindle Fire HDX for my kids this year.
