Okay, there is 1 week left for the Kindle Fire Giveaway that we are hosting here on DragonBlogger.com.  1 week for readers to get in as many entries as possible to try and win one of two Kindle Fires I will personally ship out on December 15th so that it will arrive before Christmas.

Join the contest now and start collecting entries, as it is a random draw even just 1 entry could make you a winner (but increase your odds by getting as many as possible).

Meanwhile, I have been hard at work testing various functionality and features on the Kindle Fire so that my readers understand the best way to setup, configure and use the device.  I have answered many questions as well and have even tested and confirmed Flash based websites work (at least the ones I tested) on the Kindle Fire.  I was able to play Plants Vs. Zombies and a few other flash based games on Popcap games with the Kindle Fire.

Setup Kindle Fire for Kids

Some reviewers and forums posts mentioned that the Kindle Fire is a bad idea for kids, but I found a way to make it much more viable for smaller kids without parents worrying about their bank accounts or credit cards charged to death.

Copy Movies to Kindle Fire

Meanwhile, we are still giving away copies of uRex DVD Ripper which allows you to rip any movie that you own and convert it to Kindle Fire MP4 compatible format so you can watch it on the go.

Read and comment if you want a copy of uRex DVD Ripper as I am giving them away to the first commenters who want a copy, this isn’t a random contest I am literally just giving you a license key if you want it.

Find free Kindle Fire Apps

Finally I wrote an article on how to leverage the Amazon Android app store to filter out only free apps and games for the Kindle Fire so you can quickly find and download only the free stuff.  There are over 6,000 free Kindle Fire compatible Android apps currently and the list grows pretty rapidly.

Read about free Kindle Fire apps and how you can easily sort and download them.

Last, I noticed that the best way to download and install Kindle Fire apps to the Kindle Fire, isn’t necessarily by browsing for them on the Kindle Fire. I use my PC browser and Amazon to find the apps I want and download them.  Then just click the sync button on the Kindle Fire and install each app and voila they are now on your Kindle Fire.  This is a great way to quickly add a smack of apps at once, and the good thing is you can install multiple apps at the same time, though they just go into a queue and install one at a time.

The Kindle Fire is a great gift if you don’t have the money for an iPad 2 or can’t justify getting your kids an expensive gadget with the risk of it getting damaged or broken.  Personally I wanted to get my kids a tablet and I opted to get them each a Kindle Fire and it was a logical choice.  There are dozens of learning apps from Math, Reading, Science already for free in the Amazon app store.  You can get whatever you want out of a Kindle Fire for your kids and let’s face it, 10-15 years from now everybody will be accustomed to using touch interfaces as the norm so why not get them acclimated now!

So join the Kindle Fire Giveaway and see if you can win one for free!
