The Globe & Mail: Sorry Canada, Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet was not worth the wait.

Now that it’s available to buy here in Canada, I spent a week and a half trying to like Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD tablet. But I just couldn’t do it. While I can say a few nice things about the hardware, it’s a piece of gear designed to leverage Amazon’s media services, which aren’t available in Canada, and shopping facilities, which massively suck in Canada.

The short of it is that if you’re looking for a cheap tablet, you’d be better off with a Nexus 7. For the long version, you can check out my full review.
