    ...though if you do, be sure to power it down. Leaving it asleep pulls the battery down fast enough that it would be dead in less than a week, I think, based on the first couple of days of having it around here.

    I will also note that data download to the Fire 7 is MUCH slower than to my iOS devices, but considering the price point that’s not a big deal.

    I’ve pulled the official iOS app down to my iPad (on which this is being typed) and it looks like it should.

    Any ideas?

    There were 104 in stock when I purchased my 2 at 6:15 AM, current inventory is 75. Bet they will be gone by noon.

    Russ, I just ordered a Mini. But the app is still not showing up in Google Play so I installed the APK from your website.

    I ordered a Mini and was able to install the Android app from the Play link Russ posted above. It doesn't show up when I search in the Play app either.

    Paypal flagged our account because of the sales volume and wanted "Additional Verification"... Should be good now.

    And they're gone.

    Glad I ordered 1 this morning. I set an alert for the next batch too.

    I happened to be up a little after midnight last night. I snatched two at 12:15 am. Glad I thought of it then, or else I would have been SOL.

    Thanks to all that ordered! I was able to ship about a third of the orders today. The rest should be out the first of the week. Please hang in there while I catch up.

    Apologies to those that missed it. More are on the way. I was hoping this round would have lasted longer. At least the site stayed up! I will post a more definite date for availability when I can.

    Thanks again, please let me know if you have any questions.

    Well I could have only bought one. Then I would have to pay shipping. So I bought 2 instead.

    That's some good pricing!

    Spend $20 to save $3... Glad someone else agrees it makes sense. I've been trying to convince my wife for years!

    The way I see it shipping is a wasted cost. I get no value out of it after the fact. The extra $17 gets me another altimeter which has value until I lose it or break it.
