    Salt in wound time... New Kindle HDX coming

    I'm betting that these will work just fine out of the box...

    Ray, the underlying is, in fact, JB.
    If it can be unlocked and custom ROM developed, it'll be one little hotrod device. Best of both worlds :Android experience, great hardware and unprecedented customer support all in one.
    I'm going to watch with interest the development aspect....

    I thought those sounded pretty interesting, too.

    The initial rumors were that the 7" would match the new N7's resolution, and with a faster processor. And dang, that's speedy stuff there. I'd have liked 2560x1600 in a full 10" screen, but I guess Amazon decided to keep the same size.

    I wonder how many people returned their N7s to wait for Amazon, people who would prefer real Android but will put up with a somewhat-Android system. I wonder how many people will get one of these and make a great ROM to get away from Android's marketing-oriented OS. Then Google will get everything it deserves. Let me put it this way, if I hadn't bought the new N7, and if someone developed CM or other great ROM, I might have gotten one of these.

    I'm waiting.... I'm thinking that there will be some 'leaks' of either the tabs or the OS beforehand, and some ROM development will already be in the works before they're delivered.
    Bezos is a smart guy and he knows that, with 'hobbyist' support he could probably see a 30% increase in sales.
    Look for the competition's weak spot and exploit the snot out of it.
    The N7 2013 has 'weak spot' and 'kick me' written all over it.

    Yeah, Google has provided nothing but fodder for Amazon and Apple sales. Imagine a commercial that's simply testimonials from, um, "statistically insignificant" N7 owners. Or just a commercial saying, "These aren't our new designs. They're yours, so that a Kindle will be something you'll love more with every use. And we put them through stringent QA to make sure they're something you won't have to return."

    Gets better....2G RAM, 2.2G quad core CPU, 32G storage. $8 more than the N7 2013, plus a truly credible OEM case.
    64G storage for $40 more.

    The same storage carries the same price, doesn't it? That link shows the 16-gig HDX for $229, 32-gig for $269.

    Amazon even came up with a decent naming convention! I mean, I don't like Kindles at all because of the closed system, but Amazon's doing a lot of things right. The one definite advantage of the new N7 is being a little thinner and lighter, but not significantly.
