Kindle Fires are really nice!!! But it depends if you want to read alot a kindle fire would work great.. If you want mainly stricly apps then an IPod touch would work! You can surf the Internet and stuff on both!!
If you ask me the "Kindle fire" is way too sophisticated for what is suppose to be,if you want a phone and multiple apps, get the iphone.If you want to read books get any other kindle besides "fire".(personally i would go with the iphone)
