Santa brought me one of the 79 ones. The Kindle Fire looks like a bad e-reader (short battery, bad screen) and a bad tablet (locked down, mediocre hardware), a sort of worst-of-both-worlds thing, so I'm surprised to see it get so much love.

Root it and you can largely overcome three of those limitations. The screen's still not fantastic, but the rest would be more than serviceable.

To be fair, if you want to make the battery last on any kindle, you turn off the wifi unless you're specifically doing something online.

THat, and I use the brightness at the lowerst level, even during the day in my squad. The brighter it is, the less battery life you will get.
