I hope it has the ability to dim the display darker than the current Fire. If I'm reading on my Fire in the dark the display is too bright even with with the brightness turned all the way down.

No, but it is the same screen resolution of laptops with a 15.4 inch screen just 5-7 years go.

Important to know that this extra screen resolution in hand held devices just requires more power to scale the images and run apps at that size. I AM all for more resolution on larger screens. on a 7 inch screen, this is plenty.

This is like the new megapixel wars(like cameras when you have a 9MP camera look far worse then a quality 2-5MP and they all[at the consumer level] still have smaller sensors then real 35mm film had.)but this time, its for screens.

I think I'll take an acceptable resolution and high battery life than high resolution and sub-par battery life.

Nice. The current Fire screen already kicks ass, so im sure this will look great. Between pulse/wikipedia/email/web/and emulators i love my kindle fire ... such a sweet device for the price. Amazon def hit the sweet spot for price/specs. Be curious how googles nexus turns out.

If the ad-supported version displays ads when it's turned off, won't battery life suffer tremendously? After all, this isn't an e-ink screen. On my phone, I commonly see the screen consuming 70% of the battery, even when I don't have the screen turned on. (today, for instance - looking up a few things, and a bit of Pandora streaming with the screen off)

You do realize this is a 7" screen, right? This isn't like the 800x480 screens that we had a few years ago there.

Still waiting for the first version in the UK...

I would've liked to buy one initially, but this disregard would leave me not wanting one at all.

It's quite comical that people think that they can see the difference between 1280x800 and 1920x1080 in video. You couldn't even see a difference if it was 1024x768. It's video. The frames blur together as your eyes integrate. Color gamut can be seen. Resolution cannot. The human eye cannot perceive the difference, except maybe when the credits are being shown (who cares?).

YOU DON'T NEED 1080P ON A 7" SCREEN OR EVEN A 10" SCREEN!

you can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p unless the screen is around 30" or bigger. True story!

And, good point, how many Bluray movies do you play on a tablet?

It's not a matter of needing....it's wanting...whether there's a point to it or not....

I can't even see the difference between 720p and 1080p on my 32" screen....
