great new phone, too bad it's hard to fix

The new Amazon Fire has a lot of great new features.  I expect we will see many of them in future generations of competing phones.  On the other hand, putting this much stuff in a phone is difficult.  That seems to lead to a phone that is hard to repair.

It certainly looks interesting and with so many features I consider if it doesn't slow down the processing it will give tough time to its competitors.

"2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, with 450 MHz Adreno 330 GPU"

Far911, No doubt. GPU can also render more performance especially when it comes for video streaming and display.

With phone unlocking the norm... can this be used on other networks now?

Cabe, that's a drawback with most of the service providers. They used to lock the device with their services. But in Asian countries there won't be such issues. Here customers can by any devices and can avail the service by inserting service providers SIM.
