I am looking at a Kindle fire for a lighter, more portable version of the iPad. But i need to know if it can operate games and apps like the iPad. I don't want one that's only good for books and internet.

It supports YouTube...have had no issues with limited apps, but I notice the wait time is a little longer with a few of the newer releases. LOVE my KF! My favorite part is how light it is. Get the new HD version with the camera!

You do realize Apple's about to release a smaller version of the iPad later this month, right?  Google for iPad mini and you'll see what I'm talking about.

The iPad mini is going to be $200-250, according to one tech review website. I can get a regular KF for $160 or a Kindle Fire HD for $200 (or of course look on ebay, overstock, etc. for better prices). I suspect that if I want more features on an iPad mini I'll need to fork out more, but thanks for the tip!

If you want smaller that an ipad with the features, better get an iphone.....I love my ipad, and it doesn't weigh anything, not sure how "light" you want it to be, but if it was any lighter you would be holding air....JMO

Do I still have to play a calling plan even if I just want to do apps and photos and not use it (the iPhone) as a cell phone?

I have 4 Kindle Fire's in my house and we all love them. My wife read books all summer on hers and we all play games and read on them. We downloaded a book for my daughter for a school report. I think they're excellent for the price and hardware inside.
