Non-US people: Don't buy kindle fire.
I bought it in US with the hope that it'll work in all the countries. Its waste. U've to be physically located in US to use this device. Also to purchase any music/video/book u'll need a US credit card and US shipping address. They don't support Non-US regions. I tried kindle fire in India as well.
I plan on getting a Fire for Christmas (hint to wife), even though I already have an IPad and the old style Keyboard Kindle.
I also plan to buy a Kindle Touch for $99 - who can resist the price of these gadgets?
