"The screen on the Kindle makes reading a joy."4.0 starson by comphelp
Pros: Awesome screen. Small Size. Online book downloads. Free Wikipedia access. Available in most countries (unlike the Nook).
Cons: A smaller range of books available to Australians (not the Kindle's fault - its the publishing industry). No option to bypass the higher price ($US11.99) and pay the US price ($US9.99) and download books over the Internet.
Summary: I love my Kindle. The screen is simply spectacular. Every time I show it to someone they just can't believe how good it is. Reading books on it is an absolute joy. They designed the product to "disappear" so that its just like reading a book and they've done it well. The range and price of books is very good. I just wish the publishing industry would wake up and make all books available in all regions at the same time and same price (I'm in Australia). They're also making the same mistakes as the music industry made with DRM. I'm sure that will change given time. Being a mature product now (coming after the Kindle 1), its quite a refined product and there's really nothing to dislike about it. Amazon have done an excellent job with the Kindle and I'm feeling quite confident that they will become the dominant electronic reading device due to the quality of the product and the range of books available. Most other reading devices have missed the boat as it is the device with the best range of content that will win this race.
