We're about six-months in with the Amazon Kindle Fire, and we're wondering. We know that Amazon sold a good many Fires, and there's even a nice little support community for the 7-inch tablet. We get it — it's very solid hardware, had the backing of Amazon, and hit the sweet spot in pricing. That's a lot of checks in the plus column, and we can see why it was a popular seller.
But as mentioned, we're curious about how many of you good folks picked one up, and are still using it. Let us know in tonight's poll!

We love to see new devices available in new places, right? Motorola has just announced that they will be making the Defy Mini available to customers in Norway and Sweden. So what makes this phone special? Aside from the middle grade specs such as the 3.2-inch display, or the 600MHz processor, this entry level device is a great, small rugged device. If you are looking for something that won't be hurt in the rain, can withstand your rock climbs, and maybe an occasional drop or two, this may be the phone for you.

It’s no secret that Apple will unveil the new iPad 3 at its March 7 event for journalists next week. The coy and vague invitations to the event featured an iPad-looking image, with the words, “We have something you really have to see. And touch.” Beyond the hope for a wicked-sharp new iPad 3 screen and speculation about a beefier processor, a whole different set of rumors has been gaining momentum.
Being the host nation for MWC, it seems only fair that Spain should start to see some new devices heading their way. On the first (official) day of MWC, Motorola have announced that the Motoluxe and the Defy Mini will be released into the Spanish market.
Availability on carriers is still to follow, but Motorola expect the Motoluxe to be available from April. The Defy Mini will then follow along in May. No word as yet on pricing for the devices either.
