Kindle Fire runs on the Android OS, which supports flash. Pogo runs heavy on flash, so yes, you can go to Pogo.com on a kindle fire.

 

 

Also, the Kindle Fire is wifi only, I think.

I think I'll get a Nook because you have access to way more books than Amazon.

This should seriously help me in my quest for knoWledge of things they are not wanting you to know.

 

and to think it all began here....

My wife really does love her Nook. You can use it at the library too which is kind of cool.

Nooks are nice, they're even better if you root them (Rooting an android device is the same as Jailbreaking an iPhone)

 

Most people bought a nook, rooted it, and turned it into a fully functional Honeycomb tablet at half the price of others.

Sorry. :)

 

I'm a huge geek when it comes to Android.

 

Honeycomb is Android's latest operating system for tablets. They name their updates after desserts. 1.5=Doughnut, 2.0 Eclair, 2.2 Froyo, 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 (Tablets) Honeycomb, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

I do not know much about phones because I work at home so I cannot (or do not) justify having an expensive cell when I am almost always around a computer in the house. I do have a basic cell but I pay as I go and rarely use it. If (probably when) I start working outside of the house I will buy something better.

 

Doesn't the Nook Color automatically use Android software?

Yep.

 

However, the version the Nook Color runs is the same version that is run on most cell phones (Modified of course). Very nice as is, good price, but if you're in to rooting your devices you can turn the Nook Color into a fully functioning Android tablet, not just an e-reader.

I guess I do not know the difference. When we were on vacation my wife was using her Nook Color to check restaurant menus online, watch videos, listen to music, and surf the web. I do not know what else it could do that it did not do already, though I am sure there are things. I am not doubting you, I am just curious.

Don't worry. I think I'm the confused one here. :D

 

I did not realize the Nook was basically a tablet out of the box. I do know it did not come with the latest OS (Honeycomb). Whether or not that was updated I'm not sure.

 

Can you download/buy apps from the Android Market on a Nook?

Get the Fire.

 

I saw an ad about 3 weeks ago stating the Fire was going to be $150 on black Friday, however I can't remember which store placed the ad. :laugh:

 

Keep an eye out though.

Well we are having mixed results so far, there are games on Pogo that download and there are games that wont, says I need Java, I thought Java came with it??

And if I do need Java, I dont know what the operating system is :(

 

But man it downloads books quickly!!! she has 3 in her library that were "Freebies" thru Amazon.

Alright, a couple of quirks Im finding out with the Fire..

 

I can read Extreme ravens, but it wont allow me to log in to post. I click on Sign In and nothing happens.

 

Facebook, not sure how to log in and out, when we first went to facebook I had a sign in screen, so I logged in, but now I dont see a log in/out icon so the Mrs can change log in's.

 

This has happened frequently, we'll power up the Fire in it will be in

a date either April or May of 2012, and when that happens you cant surf the net..So what I do is shut her back down wait a few minutes, re-power her up and the correct date is there.
