Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Kindle really is an excellent product. I particularly like:-
- the long battery life.
- the ability to read in bright sunlight.
- the ability to carry around lots of books in a very compact format.
- the ease of downloading books.
- the ability to carry around podcasts and audio books.
- the ability to listen to music whist reading.
- the ability to create my own notes, to-do lists, check lists, memo's, etc.
- the ability to access my gmail account, and even my Google calendar whilst on the move (even better with the 3G version).
The only areas where I would like some improvement are:-
- the searching can be quite slow, especially when the Kindle is first turned on.
- the ability to search on phrases rather than just words; this is particularly relevant to factual books, manuals, or a book like the Bible.
- also a good calculator with tape history would be wonderful when reading technical or financial documents (I understand such an app is available to American customers but not to UK customers).
