5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning little device, 2 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 9:59 Mins

I decided that most of the features of the Kindle are fairly hard to comprehend without seeing them so I decided to create my first video review.

I have tried to cover most of the Kindle's features, like Speech to Text, music, books (of course!), web browsing, notes, pdf's and I have compared it to my Sony PRS-505. Which is not as big a difference as you might expect.

*Please note that I didn't cover newspapers and periodicals on the Kindle in this review as I like those in paper form and don't use the device for this. I browse papers heavily and like to skim back and forth and the Kindle is not ideal for this. I think that is why people might be saying the review is not helpful. I think I covered everything else though!

Overall I adore the Kindle, I am very happy with it and if you'd like to see why please feel free to watch! If you own an e-reader already this may help you decide whether the upgrade is worth it or if you are new to them you can see what the Kindle uniquely offers! Thanks for watching!

What a brilliant review by 'softdog'! If ANYTHING is going to sell this product to me, it's more likely to be this review than anything else. This should be placed just below the item on the main page for the Kindle, so you don't miss it reading other reviews.
You also do not have to translate pigeon English. Excellent!

Very good review. This is a much more palpable review than any of the written ones. Well done and thanks.

The film was OK, but there wasn't much of a plot or action. ;-)

Still waiting for mine.

Thanks for taking the trouble to post this video. I found it very informative and the Kindle looks very user friendly.

My Kindle is on order.
