Q&A: Do you have to be a big Amazon user to enjoy the Kindle Fire HD/Gen 2?

Question by Whateverkyo: Do you have to be a big Amazon user to enjoy the Kindle Fire HD/Gen 2?
Just wondering, I heard the Kindle Fire HD or Gen 2 are best used for people that are big time users of Amazon. I hardly use Amazon I bought a couple games and some other stuff, but I haven’t used the site for much of anything more (I don’t use prime). Can I still enjoy the Kindle Fire without being so involved with Amazon, or should I go with the Nexus 7? Ipad is not an option, don’t have the money for that.

The advantages which are not related to Amazon are:
– Front facing HD camera for skype
– 1280*800 HD display
– Digital dolby audio
– Dual wifi antenna for faster downloads and streaming
– HDMI out

Amazon is basically the service provider, If already have an account, you are able to download apps, use the free cloud storage and stuff like that.

Nexus 7 on the other hand is a tablet with google services and has an advantage in apps, processor and Jelly bean OS.
