Never played with a Kindle Fire yet but those who have one seem pretty happy with it. Do you think this new form factor will be successful? Or will it need more capabilities since its a full sized tablet?

Amazon taps Foxconn for 10-inch Kindle Fire, says report

 

Foxconn will make a 10-inch Kindle Fire for Amazon, according to a report. If true, this indicates Amazon is targeting the sweet spot of the

tablet

market.

 

Amazon will consign production of a 10-inch Kindle Fire tablet to Foxconn, according to an Asia-based report. If true, this would mean that Amazon has its sights on a slightly bigger tablet than previous reports have claimed.

Shipments of the 10-inch class Fire would begin in the second quarter, according to a report in DigiTimes.

I haven't played with one either. I've messed around with a friends Nook Tablet, hes rooted it and thrown the market on there so its not so bad.

 

I would think they would have to at least put some more RAM, along with more storage on the thing, maybe even a little better display. All depends on the price point really I guess overall though.

Thing is amazon can take a loss on each unit knowing they will make up for it in selling thier content. Just depends on how much the can undercut and still be viable.

 

Personally I love my acer tablet and having all options open to me. Its so worth the little extra money over the life of the product.

    • I see it as more of an economic calculation.  Basically go after the areas where they have the best odds of retaining or attracting customers versus their MVNO arrangements. The quicker they can switch back and forth between 5g and MVNOs the finer grained this decision zone can be.  Field results will beat theory.  In Sprint days this was up to 15 minutes in theory. In practice AT&T could be quite sticky.  I remember driving by 3 Sprint sites while still stuck on AT&T roaming. Dish will need to do better to thrive. Both their MVNO arrangements reportedly now cost them about $1.50 per GB. With volume that may fall to $1.
    • Man I wish I could get on their beta right now.  Looks like I'll have to wait until Dec or so.  The report is not surprising really.  Largely only have employees roaming around running tests and what not.  I am sure lots of testing is needed to iron out bugs, fix things.  Though a lot of it might be denser network.  Only so much you can do and money is spread out very thin when you have such a large target to hit. 
    • Found some AT&T c band live in Cincinnati today. Not too bad considering I was driving past on the interstate at speed.  
    • Hey Mike, a couple other things you might be able to post for S22Ultra owners, In particular, these deal with the *#0011# menu. The following are true for even the June update:   1. Does not show the second n41 carrier (when it is connected) on LTE+NSA. It shows "NR_NumCC:2" but no additional Carrier. It simply states "CA-Not Config 0 0"This works fine on the S21.  2. There is a line that states "Code Review Required" 3. There is a line that states "Unknown 0"    
    • The see Dish as the Beta network for a while. Basically once they have secured their licenses and have inexpensive phones that utilize all their bands I hope to see them reduce the edge space of their network or improve the transfer performance so customers have more of an invisible handoff experience. This will likely be late 2023.
