Why are all of these mobile devices sticking with 512MB RAM? With how cheap it is, why have they not increased this? More memory should have come before dual core or more, how do you expect to multitask if you are constantly low/out of memory?
There would be absolutely no reason to root the Fire. It would become totally useless. The device supports 8gb of on board memory. About 2gb will be taken by the Android operating system, and another 1gb set aside for apps. Without Amazons cloud backing it, you'd have only 5gb of usable memory at best. Plus rooting it would be a total pain because the only way to root would be by using the foreign method of adb through the usb cord. And you need dedicated developers.
If your sole purpose for this tablet is to root it, why not just get a Nook Color? It would be easier, the rooted OS is a year into development, and can be found at a cheaper price
Congratulations for being miles better than the rest WRT 3rd party OSes (3POs).
But why not go that insy little bit further and actually be perfect (WRT 3POs) - be like a PC, laptop, etc: Claim that 3POs are totally acceptable and advertise this as a feature, perhaps even offer support (although obviously not for the chosen 3PO unless you want to).
This is not Amazon main business but an opportunity for both sides and why they provide you with such a benefit. But is not realistic to think many companies will begin to give you hardware almost at production cost and let you do anything with it.
All in all this is how it is and I think Amazon is very smart doing such an aggressive move. I also find the K-Fire very appealing and I think this is going to produce a turning point in the entire tablet market where other players will need to redefine their business in the same size and price segment.
For $200 that's a great deal, even better that Amazon isn't going to do anything stupid to keep people from rooting it. I'd still prefer a larger screen though and I think I'll hold out for the Asus Transformer 2, but these are priced well so I'm sure they'll be very popular.
