If you're searching for that perfect starter tablet for a loved one, the HDX is a compelling proposition with plenty of user-friendly features and specs that match the Nexus 7 blow for blow.

It combines reading, watching and customer support into a package about as thin as a Reader’s Digest. Is it a great general-purpose tablet? No. But if you use it as directed, you’re going to be very pleased.

I am actively and seriously considering making the ... Kindle Fire HDX as my auxiliary tablet and ebook reader. Yes, it is not cheap, but given how much of my life resides on Amazon’s servers ... and how often I order stuff for my home from Amazon, it will be a worthwhile investment.

Amazon's 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX is the simplest high-quality small-screen tablet you can buy, and ease of use doesn't come at the cost of performance.
