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.

Sure, you can run any of those on rooted stock Kindle or ICS. But if you're an Amazon Prime member then streaming and lending are included at no extra charge. It's also nice having one's last used book, video, or music on the home screen (i.e. optimized for that use). Stock does have advantages, so I keep it on my Kindle. I could limit myself and use alternatives, but I carry my ICS phone with me at all times, so there's little reason to replicate functionality.
