Internet Apps

As far as apps go, Amazon really has not done enough to gain ground on its competitors in the mobile market, but considering the purpose of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD is not to sell apps, but content, this is no surprise. Still, you should be aware that this is not a tablet that will allow you immediate access to the hottest apps and programs, and will leave you high and dry if you want to routinely use it to work or do anything other than consume media.

Other Internet Features

All that being said, the email function of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD should be passable in a pinch if you have a POP3, IMAP, or Exchange inbox. Simply follow the wizard in the app and your email will go to your tablet from then on.
