So soon into the lifetime of the blog? I know. But what can I say, I’m on vacation, away from my computer, and can’t make a decent post from my phone (which is what I’m doing now).

So today’s episode is simply a micro-review of the Kindle Fire, which I got my girlfriend for her birthday.

Turns out, I’m jealous of it, despite having a Droid phone and an iPod Touch. What it amounts to in my terms is a bigger, nicer iPod Touch (as far as having games goes), but is also way better at books and movies. Arguably worse at music (which I would hope, comparing it to an iPod).

Overall, I think I will get myself one. Or someone can donate one, whatever.

If you get one, definitely order a portfolio case thing to go with it. It feels very exposed with nothing in front of the big… What, 7″ screen? Something.

PS – Don’t pay the extra $4 for the HD Angry Birds. I didn’t notice a difference. Definitely make sure you get the Kindle Fire edition of Doodle Jump though (if you have a Kindle Fire). I didn’t know that exiated, got the normal one, and it was all choppy. Also I might review those two games in the near future.

Poll time! Next entry: Angry Birds, Doodle Jump, or Plants Vs Zombies? Or mini reviews of all three?
