Looking good so far...,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Keyboard, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display (Electronics)I bought this for my wife who like me, enjoys a good read at night and especially on holiday. It is so easy to use when browsing and buying books and the ink screen technology has to be seen and used to appreciate how good it is.
I don't think it will ever be used for anything more than reading - the browser has a long way to go - but that is fine by me (us). It is so compact and light and overall, good value for money too. Granted it will take many, many books downloaded and read before we get 'buyback' value but by that time, we will not have purchased a mass of paperbacks to store, pass on or destroy.
Not that we will never buy a book again. Sometimes a book looks so attractive on the bookstore shelf that you have to own it and also - and this is it's main drawback at the moment - not every book you will want to read will be available. Browsing for favourite books that we would happily read again in digital form was not greatly successful. I'm sure that things may improve. I hope that things will improve...
