Kindle Fire Usability Findings - Jakob Nielsen

Jakob Nielsen weighs in on the Kindle Fire (and 7″ tablets in general).

Using designs intended for a full screen on a 7-inch tablet is like squeezing a size-10 person into a size-7 suit. Not going to look good. But that’s what the Fire is trying to do. Accessing full (desktop) sites on the Fire was a prescription for failure in our testing. Users did much better when using mobile sites.
