PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Some impressive new stuff from Amazon today. Great hardware, good price points, and, unlike Nokia, Amazon opens up pre-orders right away and gives us shipping dates. Still, I would personally advice waiting with buying one until you can replace Amazon's Frankendroid with Cyanogenmod or something.

Sorry, but replacing the heavily crippled Kindle Fire's Frankendroid is the first thing anyone with any sense would do. Without that, you're limited to Amazon's Appstore, which is nowhere near as comprehensive as Google Play, plus no doubt other limitations Amazon will impose.

Heck, I even rooted my Nexus 7 and put CyanogenMod 10 on it, which brings a lot more customisability (including a percentage figure next to the battery icon - yay!) than even the vanilla JellyBean release that came with it.
