  • Super-lightweight and easy to hold with one hand
  • X-Ray, Mayday, and parental control features are valuable and unique to this device
  • Fire OS 3.0 keeps your focus on the content you want to enjoy, not on organization or maintenance
  • An annual Amazon Prime membership brings an immense library of books and video to the device with no additional charges

Cons

  • No challenge to the iPad as a productivity device
  • Not that much less expensive than an iPad
