"My New Addiction"5.0 starson by cloudhair
Pros: Portability, Amount of Books it can hold, Link to Amazon, 3G to wirelessly download even overseas, Easy to Read,
Being able to send Word documents to yourself, Built-in Dictionary, Being able to search through all the books you have on it...I
Cons: The battery is internal but then again so is the ipod's. The web browser is not great but is useful in a pinch, especially if you can't find wi-fi. I also sometimes miss the page numbers.
Summary: I'm not sure how anyone could rate this less than three stars. The Kindle really delivers what it promises. I got mine about 2 weeks ago and have been using it constantly ever since. I am currently traveling in Asia and I can't believe I used to travel internationally without it. The person who complained about not having enough memory is crazy. Does anyone really need to bring more than 1500 books with them at a time? This is plenty for me. Some people complained about no wifi but the 3G has worked all over Asia for me. This is more convenient than having to sit at a Starbucks or one of the few places here that actually offers wi-fi. The web browser isn't the easiest to use but I've mainly enjoyed being able to download books while traveling using the 3G. I have even downloaded travel books while I am here to navigate through these foreign cities. I am giving a presentation later and just used the function where you can send word documents to yourself. This is great! Now I do not have to bring my bulky laptop to read my notes. I can just bring my light and portable Kindle. I like how you can take notes as you read using the full keyboard. I have also used the dictionary feature a lot and it's helping me to expand my vocabulary as I read. I have already finished several books and did not feel the eye strain one can get from reading a computer screen. I would recommend this to anyone. In fact, I tell pretty much all my friends about its exciting features. It really is a must for the reader/traveler.
