Stereo speakers are positioned at the top of the device--so they're not muffled when you place the device on a table top, pillow or other surface. Music will play while you read.

Yes, I forgot, no sdcard, 8gb, no 3G, no camera. Taps was already played before it was even released. I wonder who does the thinking for these people. Dumb and dumber!

re: Amazon Kindle Fire: Visual Tour
I am disappointed. I was holding out, waiting for Amazon to deliver something truly amazing. A 7" device with no 3G, no camera and ok battery life just doesn't do it for me. I think I will be moving forward with an iPad.
