Sooooooo.... How many of you guys this past Black Friday event fell for the $35 Kindle Fire meme?

Is it terrible?
>>
Not sure desu. Just was curious to see how many people got it and what they thought of it.
>>
fapplet should be here a few days. Can't wait.
>>
>>51604050
Already had an hdx from awhile ago so nah.
>>
>>51604050
For $35 on a tablet you aren't falling for a meme, you literally only loose pocket change unless you're a Mexican
>>
I ordered 2 and they'll be here the 14th or 16th
>>
>>51604546
Lol congrats m8
Is there a root exploit?
>>
>>51604050
Is there any way to put stock android on the 50 dollar tablet? I might just get one if so. I've been looking for a pdf reader
>>

>I've been looking for a pdf reader
So buy a fucking nook or kindle

Or you know go to your fucking local library and print the shit out for free

I kekl'd

I have one running CM12

Bought it for $50 when it got announced. Not bad for the price.
>>
>>51605376
Does it lag?
>>
>>51604786
yes there is
you can either install goolge play store framework w/o full root or you root and run custom rom , or so i hear

or you can just DL and side load apps i saw someone running a N64 emu side loaded on the native OS

so disappointed i was under the impression the deal was on till cyber monday but when i woke up it was gone

i wanted to go look at one in person 1st and do some research about rooting and performance

i saw one at worst buy today , the screen and build quality were no where near as bad as i thought

the display was a demo unit and locked down to shitty demo though so i could not test it at all
but videos i saw of it rooted looked good and got good review by the rooter said it was responsive

i hope they bring it back one more time for cuber monday maybe i will pick up a couple

i never rooted anything before and i was looking to get this to experiment on

i thought it would be easy to find a comparable Chinese tablet with near exact specs for 35$ but i havent been able to everything is only 512 ram not 1gb
>>
>>51605570
They don't call it the Kindle Fire for nothing, it's BLAZING fast!
>>
>kindle

You should never, ever fall for this DRM crap.
>>
>>51605845
i though they called it that cause it was catching on fire like the nvidia shield
>>
>>51605841
yeah, hoping they will offer same deal near x-mas time. Got an old tab 2 that is not holding charge like it used to, so this might be a good replacement.
>>
>>51605874
>DRM

yeah but you can root it

and i don't know but is prime worth it?

seems like it may not be that bad only 100 a year or something right, 90 a year maybe?
i know they upped it from 80$

i mean how is the movie and tv shoah selection? it can't be worse than NF right?
i never been on it

plus if you root you can still DL a prime movie app

and rooted or not i think it still has screen mirroring
>>
>>51605945
>yeah but you can root it

You are still giving Amazon money for DRM'd products, effectively rewarding them for it. You should never do this.
>>
>>51606123
Amazon keeps tabs on shit. If they know a significant number of people buying it are rooting it, they're unlikely to put much effort into making the device unrootable.
>>
>>51605945
Prime is BY FAR the greatest subscription I own (Spotify, Hulu, Netflix, and Prime). The shipping benefits alone are more than worth it so the extra benefits are just bonus IMO.

As for the tablet, I have it with CM12 and rooted with the amazon video app installed. Works fine although CM itself is still a bit unstable
>>

>>51604164
I actually has the same build/design of the blackberry PlayBook, just without the grip back cameras and Os. It pretty good.
>>
come on /g/ someone has to have a kink to an unbranded version of this for 35$ right?

i mean whoever is making these for amazon is probably selling an unbranded version for 35$ someplace minus the fire OS
