Jay Yarow's advice – Do Not Pre-Order Any Of The Amazon Kindle Fire HD Tablets:
at just $199 for the 7-inch model and $299 for the 9-inch model, it's tempting to hop over to Amazon.com and pre-order the tablets.
Our advice: Don't do it.
Last year Amazon announced the Kindle Fire and it looked great. We, like many others, pre-ordered the tablet before anyone really got time to play with the tablet. When it finally arrived it was a let down.
This year, we highly recommend waiting until reviewers get some time to actually use the Kindle Fire HD tablets for extended periods of time.
