My initial impressions are positive. It’s much faster than the older model and the new FireOS include great features like parental controls and user profiles which are missing from the iPad and iOS. Restoring from backups of older devices was really easy. The power button, volume toggle, headphone jack, and USB port are all at the top of the device. The cover for the microSD card seems a little flimsy but if you’re not opening and closing it constantly it should be OK. A full review will be coming soon.
