Anyone know if the paperwhite will be able to use the same charger as the keyboard kindle or do you have to buy a new one?

How begging an e-mail was it and do you think it would work with a Kindle keyboard that I've had for about a year ????

Wow they must be getting so many orders. Delivery has now been pushed back until the middle of November according to the product page. I was in Waterstones today and I asked if and when they would be getting them in stock. There was also an older couple asking about the pw and they said that lots of people had been in asking about them.

I reckon you'd have to offer them your first born!

I think it does, I never unpacked the lead from my touch just carried on using the one from my original KK

Excellent news, I bet you're so pleased :-))

Suze says:
KA, I haven't heard anything about the Touches failing once the warranty is up. The keyboard one seems to do this a lot though. The Touch hasn't been here for 12 months yet so we don't know what they'll do once they get to an age. To make sure though I took out the extended warranty.

Suze says:
Another reason to wait as far as I'm concerned.

Suze says:
Kelp who says no more updates for the Touch. The keyboard one is over 2 years old now and they've just had an update.

Suze, my K3 is just over 2 years old and so far has had zero issues - not a single freeze or self-reboot or anything else during that time despite being used a lot (fingers crossed it stays that way for a fair while longer!)

Suze says:
I hope it stays that way for you as well. I lost faith in the keyboard when I was on my 5th replacement, then all the stories about them packing in just out of warranty started dribbling in. When I got the Touch I made sure I got the extended warranty.

in the UK will the paper white be ad free, we don't appear to being offered the alternate versions

Izzy says:
Ouch, 5 replacements would have put me off too! The fact that I seem to have a good K3 is probably part of the reason why I'm somehow reluctant to get the PW (but having said that, I still haven't cancelled my preorder) particularly given the rather numerous reports of random colour blotches on the screen that I've seen on the Mobile Read forum. I am fine with the uneven lighting as shown by Amazon here http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html?docId=1000676393 particularly as I am unlikely to use it in a dark room with no other light source but would not be happy with colour blotches :p a poll on MR has just 52% happy with their unit, 35% have asked for a replacement (which may or may not be better than their first) and the rest is mostly undecided.

Suze says:
The reviews have put me off it. I liked the look of the PW at first, but not now. I think there are too many light problems so will stay with my Touch for a while I think.

@Suze Well it could just be a bad batch I suppose but it looks like QC might be lacking a bit? It's all fairly subjective as well so what one person finds unacceptable will be fine for someone else

Paul says:
Once its within 30 days there shouldn't be much of a problem with that and that you have all the boxing etc. Outside might be a little harder to get a full refund. Hope it works out in your favour :)

I love my Touch in its lighted cover but a part of me really wants to try the PW so i have pre ordered, but won't hesitate to send t back if its not all I hope for.

The thing is, people like yourself who have had nothing but good exp with a product/device are less inclined to be found posting about how good it is on line etc, its the people who are not happy with it that will cry murder heh. But that's fair enough, your not happy you have the right to voice your thoughts/feeling.. although alot of people are less than truthful about what 'apparently' happened to their Kindle when posting.
While it must suck for it to happen like a month past warranty, at the end of the day its still out of warranty and at the very least they do offer us something which is better than nothing.

My brother has his Keyboard since release and still no issues with it, me and my sister both have K4's and while I had no issue with mine, her screen was damaged due to rolling over it in the car 'deerrrr' and got it replaced at a reduced cost.
Try contact apple in warranty even.. its like gettin blood out of a rock. Out of warranty, they will kindly send you a link to where you can go buy a brand new one -_-

It was 4 days after the 30 day period but they said they would make an exception for goodwill. So I am now sans kindle, as the touch is winging its way back to Amazon and on order one Paperwhite and one Royal Purple cover! Don't know how I'll cope without a kindle for 2 weeks!!
