Very useful, definitely recommend this,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very happy with this overall:
- it really is very light weight. I think the cover I bought actually weighs more than the kindle.
- it is very easy to read, I can read for hours on it with no eye strain.
- it is fairly intuitive to use, and the introductory tutorial is good.
- you make significant savings on a lot of books, and also have access to some that are unique to the Kindle. I am finding some of the 89p computing guides quite handy.
I have the one with 3G, and have used the experimentla browser quite a bit. It's very slow and a bit unstable, but I would love to see this feature developed, as it would be so handy.
My only reservation is that I wouldn't want to use the Kindle to read and study a textbook. While it is easy to highlight and flick through, I still feel it would be easier to sit there with textbook, notebook, and pen, when really trying to get my head round a topic. I studied English Literature, and while I would be happy to use the Kindle for reading and making notes on novels and poems, I would not want to use it for lengthy theory texts. I imagine this would be even more the case with science textbooks.
Overall, I definitely recommend the Kindle :-)
