I like how they double checked the specs this time and made sure it said "1st gen" in the title. They learned from the last time they sold the 1st gen Fire.
I took the deal back then and I have been quite happy with mine with it running a Android 4.0 ROM (this comes with Android 2.3)

Kindles are fading fast. They have failed miserably in the last year. Their popularity has waned. Waste of moolah!

You can find this for around the same price or cheaper at a lot of places. I bought one a few weeks ago from another daily deal site for $89 and once I rooted it and put android on it is a pretty decent. Very easy to root too.

I just found out the my kid uses his to study for exams. I gave it to him so that he could watch his videos in-between classes. I am still in shock!

I don't know about this price though - I just got a Fire HD 7" 16gb for $139 from Staples (it was on sale and I had a coupon)

That's O'neill with two L's *holds up three fingers*

This is unbelievably easy to put CyanogenMod on. I hacked one for a friend. That said, it's slow, *heavy*, and lacks bluetooth, a card expansion slot, hardware volume controls, and a host of other things that I'll look for in a tablet if I ever get around to buying one. I personally wouldn't buy one of these for half the price.

I have a one of these. Great overall, great screen, reliable. Can read for hours with no eye strain.
Included browser is pretty limited, but functional.
If you like to buy books off Amazon, or use Calibre, this works great.
But this price does NOT seem like much of a deal at all.

Sure they have shortcomings, but for under $100 they make a decent kid's tablet to watch Netflix and play Angry Birds.

I don't have one, but I've heard a lot of good things about it.

Seller refurbished <> New
Good effort, though.

Kindle has been slow to support the visually impaired community while simultaneously throwing themselves at the public schools and that alone is enough to make me quite happy with my Nook. Well that and the fact that B&N just basically gave them away about a month ago.

My bad! New meant "New Model." I didn't read closely enough.

Meaning both are refurb, but Gen 2 is $10 cheaper on ebay... $15 if you count $5 for Woot shipping.

I have a 1st gen Fire but I don't use it much. No Bluetooth, so no keyboard. Ok web browsing, and good for watching Videos. Pinger works for texting only because no microphone.

I prefer e-ink for reading bit if you like a backlight screen, then it's good for reading books. All new Fire purchases will get you a free month of Amazon Prime.

IMHO, the biggest problem is that you can't use a VPN with the Kindle, so be careful at wifi hotspots.

Got one new a couple of years ago, and I love it. The size/weight of it is perfect. I use it almost every night for watching Netflix, reading, or surfing the net while lying in bed. Battery life is good (I charge it every 4-5 days). The one big negative on it is that there is no hardware volume control.

I didn't see the model difference. Guess I can't give you too much grief.

That's a good question. Its not as good as my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. I'd say I get about 12 hours of active use out of it before the battery goes. When I am using it though it will stay off the charger for days because I dont use it actively and it just holds its charge.
