"Small and Pricy for 1 trick pony"2.5 starson by rehabgal
Good for avid readers, commuters and travelers
Cons: Screen too smalll to comfortably read.
Annoying click when flipping pages
Internet access slower than dial-up
Slippery, cover & booklight purchases a must
Books over $9.99, over paperback price & "free" books limited.
Summary: Even at $259, it's too much for a one trick pony. The novelty wears off, esp for avid readers.
Screen is just too small, comfortable font size pg is about 1/2 of a paperback book, causing excessive clicks to flip. Yes, others can hear your clicks.
Technology seems outdated.
Most of all, Amazon should take market strategy of cell phones: drop price of unit to $80 or less to saturate the market (that's what it's worth) then make money on the books, etc. Instead, they are raising prices of the books - mine's going back.
