  1. The kindle fire is hands down better. Even though the prices are similar I'd say the K fire is more sleek.

    • I disagree. It really depends on what you want to use it for. If your looking for more storage and memory than the nook is a better deal.

  2. Hi, I do think this is an excellent web site.

    I stumbledupon it ;) I will revisit yet again since I bookmarked it.

    Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to help others.

  3. Hey, just send me that phone and I will try to have it fixed! I have been working with Xperia ARC for 10 weeks now and I have the latest official release 2.3.3 on it. And it all works with Over The Air updates provded the pink giant mobile network ;-) Just let me give a try !

  4. Nice to read this post. This is one of the great posts. The efforts made to share this post are really appreciable. Keep it up and thanks for this.
