When Apple released the iPad a few years ago, it was the beginning of the reality that I may end up buying a tablet computer one day. The first iPad seemed cool, but I wasn’t really sure I could justify the expense.  The iPad 2 gave me another urge to buy one. I resisted. By the time the iPad 3 (The New iPad) was available, I ran out of excuses. I had just gotten a iPhone 4s a few months ago and it seemed that it was finally the time to get a iPad.

I was happy with the purchase until a few months later when the fourth generation iPad came out. It seemed a bit unfair. Still, I like the iPad as I can use it in lieu of my laptop and take it anywhere I want. It’s easy to carry around and I can do pretty much anything I want on it (I have an Alienware 17″ notebook, great for gaming, but heavy). The only real problem I have had with it was that the USB cable didn’t last as long as they usually do. I like the lighting port my new iPhone 5s has and I was thinking about replacing my current iPad with either the Air or the mini.

Then an interesting opportunity entered my inbox. Amazon, a company that has made quite a bit of money off me through the years, gave me an offer I couldn’t refuse. A 30 day free trial of any Kindle I so choose. No risk to me, as I can return the kindle if I decide I don’t want it before the trial is up and I don’t get charged for it unless I keep it after the 30 days.

Seems like a good deal to me! I chose the Kindle Fire HDX, because it’s the newest model. It’s also the most affordable at $240 without the special offers and sponsor ads on the lock screen. The screen is 7″, so it is smaller than my iPad at about 9″. Since I am considering buying the new iPad Mini with retina display, I can see if I like a smaller screen. I like that Apple is sticking with smaller screens for the iPhone, but I’m not sure how I will like a smaller screen on a tablet computer. Now I can find out!

This is a win-win for me. If I really like the kindle fire, I can keep it and trade in my iPad to Amazon for about $200. That will cover most of the cost of the kindle. If I decide that I like the iPad better, well I can send back the kindle and I’ll have an easier time deciding which new iPad to get. I’m not really a fan of the android OS as I had problems with it when I had my HTC phones. The Kindle Fire uses its own OS that is based on android, so we will see how it works. It’s hard to see how it could beat iOS used by Apple mobile devices. Whatever the case, I am a happy Amazon customer! I look forward to see what this opportunity will bring. I’m planning on writing a review of the Kindle Fire HDX after I have some time to play around with it. Stay tuned!
