Although I do not own one...so this is strictly an opinion with no hands-on testing, I tend to agree with the article.
I have a 7" Nexus and my wife has the 10.1" ASUS TF300T. For portability, the Nexus is large enough to do what I want/need, but also very portable. Even then, it is sometimes almost larger than what I ideally want to cart along, and for reading in bed and such. I do not think that I'd want to go any larger than that.
When I want more screen real-estate, and portability is somewhat less important, then the ASUS really shines.
Some might see the 8.9" Fire as the "Best of both worlds", but I see it as neither ideally portable, nor competitive to 10.1"screens. For the price, I think that it is not nearly as good a deal as the Kindle Fire HD 7".

Not sure why this would be a shocker????
Its a glorified book reader that Amazon want people to stay close to.
Last thing they want is it for to be a full fledged beholden to no one robust full featured tablet.
Heck most of the they Android App complaints I see is they don;t work on Kindles.
