Alright, so I got a Kindle Fire for Christmas and I was curious as to if it were a first or second generation, is there any way to easily tell without tearing the thing apart?

The Kindle Fire's 2nd Gen is called the Kindle Fire HD
it includes a front facing camera, faster processor, more memory, and a higher-resolution screen

The differences are slight, but there.

The 2nd Gen Fire is slimmer and has a wider bezel around the screen.

If you are actually using one, go into the device settings. A first generation Kindle will have a Flash Enabled switch and it will be Yes or No. The 2nd Generation doesn't come with Flash and you won't be able to turn this on.
