I am in Europe. Does it make sense for me to buy a Kindle Fire?
Although I love Apple products, I do not want to shell out for an iPad, already owning an iPod Touch and a MacBook.
- Will the tablet even work in Europe?
- Could I buy content for it via the Amazon store?
- If not, could I put my own media content on it?
You can copy (via USB/mass storage) videos and music onto the Kindle Fire. I didn't test the cloud storage option.
You can browse the web, set your timezone, but you can't switch keyboard/interface languages yet. If you ask me, the Kindle Fire experience in Europe is awfully limited.

You will be able to put your own content and apps on the device.
You will only be able to buy content that is available in your area, which may be none, or a limited set, or similar to what is available in the US, I am not certain. If this is important to you, then you might want to wait for the Kindle Fire to launch in Europe. If you are already able to use Amazon's cloud music player, Video store and video streaming, eBook store, etc... then I don't see why it would not work immediately.
