Bought "Star Traders" and "Angry Birds" for my Kindle Fire. Angry Birds is fun and I can see why people find it addictive on mobile devices. I just got Star Traders and it's your typical star-faring explorer adventure game. Not my favorite genre at all, but after playing about an hour I can say that it runs smoothly and seems well thought out, but it really isn't my cup of tea.

Good news is they were under a couple of bucks so nothing much lost giving something a try.

Got Tetris too and that works well on the touch screen.

Didn't buy the Fire for game playing though.

I don't yet have a tablet.

When I get one it's main role will be to act as an electronic photo album. I edit photos and will cull al, the ordinary photos so thta my audience will only see good photos. I hate it when people show poor photos!

As for games - must be thinking games such as a wargame or chess. Not interested in brainless games.

Not interested in using them to read books because you cannot mark passages.

Overview of Annotations Annotations (bookmarks, highlights, notes, clippings) you make on a Kindle book are stored in your Kindle library on Amazon.com when your Kindle is connected to Whispernet. When you open the title on any registered device, you'll be right where you were the last time you read and your annotations will be included. To view your annotations: Open your title, press the Menu button and select "My Notes & Marks." Adding Bookmarks You can place a bookmark at any location and place multiple bookmarks in whatever you are reading. You can select "My Notes & Marks" from the Menu to return to any bookmarked location. Bookmarked pages have a "dog-ear" icon appears in the upper right corner.

Are you actually wanting to be able to edit the pictures on a tablet? Or do you just want a small tablet to display them? If you are looking for an inexpensive display device, the Kindle Fire would work very well for you at the lowest possible price. I expect there is probably a photo editing app out there for it too.

I do photo editing on my desktop. I currently use a netbook to display photos.

I must check out the Kindle Fire

I would presume I can copy folders from the desktop to the Kindle.

I assume so, it works just like a thumb drive, music goes in by folders so pictures should do the same. I'll try and put a few folders on and see how it works, I haven't done photos on it yet. I'll let you know if there are any problems.

I also use DROPbox for storing stuff, and Amazon gives you 5gigs of space online with the Fire.

Got my wife one for her birthday, she really likes it.

At first I thought you were saying the Asus Transformer was playing Matrix games and I was about to be blown away that the Android OS could play these games....

I think if you mention tablets or readers on any forum you invite loads of spammers!

I have an Asus TF 101... really love the thing. Got my parents a Kindle Fire for Christmas wanted something a little more powerful, more storage, and still affordable and my new fiance decided her ring was so lovely she got me the TF 101... high end tablet, only $299... best value tablet on the market in my opinion and ASUS makes a great product on seemingly everything they produce!

It's nice too because I've already saved $49 in books I would have bought on paperback but got on the Kindle app.

Goto the android market, search for "DK Simulations" and see what you can get.



Thanks. A couple of titles look pretty promising

Ya, I've bought the full versions of German Eagle vs. Russian Bear, Korean War and Rommel in Africa although I''ve only played GEvsRB. I found it to be really neat fun for a few hours of playtime while stuck on a plane. I was pleasantly surprised.

Very impressive!

I might one day get a tablet.

So long as that tablet runs Windows

And I can install a wargame.

I downloaded their Napoleonic game's demo but I'm too cheap to pay for an app on a tablet...

Asus' new line of transformer tablets have a variant that runs windows... it's just a tad expensive. Also Windows supposedly will be having a line of Windows 8 Tablets which their trying to design to compete with iPads and while it will be a tablet it's suppose to have the full windows operating system, or something very close.
