It’s been a long six weeks, but my wait is almost over. Today I got an email from Amazon telling me that my Kindle Fire has officially shipped. It should arrive in the next day or two, and I can almost guaranty that by the weekend I’ll have an extensive, Scott Pilgrim-style review posted.
In related news, the iPod Touch the Kindle will be replacing feels like it’s barely holding on to life these days. Besides the numerous software glitches I experience daily, I’m now noticing that the hardware itself (namely the Home button and the headphone jack) is starting to fail. I’ll be happy to officially retire the device after three years of very heavy usage. The last year has been pretty rough, but honestly this 2G Touch has held up better than it probably had any right to.
