Preferred reading device,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Paperwhite 3G, 6" High Resolution Display with Built-in Light, Free 3G + Wi-Fi [Previous Generation] (Electronics)
We bought a couple of these to go on holiday, given that we didn't want to take iPads to the beach.
These have now become our preferred reading devices for holidays and reading on planes or in bed, mainly due to their ability to last for ages on a charge and because they are both light and unaffected by light. Whether reading in a bright room, or in sunshine, or in a darkened plane, it is perfectly easy to read.
I like the 3G capability, as it means I can download books anywhere.
I'm not overly impressed with the illumination of the screen, as at the bottom it definitely suffers from having bright and darker spots, but it is not a show stopper.
I don't use it to read larger technical books - I prefer to read those on a laptop or iPad.
All in all a solid e-reader.
