Below is the email I sent to a person asking about Kindle Fire.
“Kindle Fire is a new device. However, even now I can tell that the Kindle Fire lacks a lot of functionality when compared to Kindles 2, DX, and 3, and even Kindle Touch.
- it does not include support for the Mobipocket index functionality,
- it does not support look-up in non-Amazon dictionaries
- or chapter navigation in books,
- the hyperlinks that are close together or separated by a non-whitespace character are merged so that only the last hyperlink works,
- its search function is extremely slow to the point of being unusable in Bibles,
- its default font (others do) does not include polytonic Greek,
- it ignores the font color tags,
- it does not have the usual Text-to-Speech functionality,
- no collections,
- no physical buttons of any sort (Home, Back, page turn), etc.
- Obviously, it does not have a physical keyboard.
For these reasons, OSNOVA DVJ navigation will not work on Kindle Fire.
So, Kindle Fire is an inferior e-reader than Kindles 2, DX, 3/Keyboard, although a good cheap Android tablet (Netflix and Amazon Video work on it marvelously).
The way to place any ebook not purchased on Amazon on Kindle Fire, is to connect it to a computer (in my case, a Windows PC) via a USB cable. Once connected, it enters into a storage mode. A Kindle drive appears in the computer file system. You can then drag-and-drop .prc, .mobi, .azw files into the folder called Documents. Then you can disconnect the Kindle Fire from the computer and find the new books under the Docs tab (not Books).
I hope this is helpful. I am disappointed that Amazon did not make the Kindle Fire at least an equal e-reader as the previous models.”
