For this reason you have to completely rely on Amazon for apps, music, movies, books etc. This $199 Android tablet is best for those who want to surf internet,  enjoy some movies, music, play books or games.

    KoboVox has some Android support, but I’ve never used mine for anything else other than reading books. There’s some interesting apps out there.

    I’m mostly interested in some kind of app that can organize my books or something. I usually download them from all you can books and just save them for later, so when I come back and want to read a specific book, I can’t find it 🙂

    Thanks for the article, Plaban. Very informative.
