"Great for international travel"4.5 starson by gadgetfool
Pros: 1. Decent screen. New pearl e-ink is improvement
2. Webkit web browser far superior than in kindle 2
3. Unbelievable access to 3g in Europe and Asia. This is huge. Free access with browser function.
4. No monthly fees.
5. Lighter than ipad
Cons: 1. Browser could be faster
2. Lack of epub support should be corrected
3. Touch screen would be useful
Summary: This is a great product and improvement over Kindle 2. The reading experience is easy and is complementary to my other devices. Ipad is great but is a bit too heavy to add to the laptop and iphone I usually have to carry anyhow. This device is light and the international support for 3g is unbelievable. Using ipad overseas is a pain and very expensive (I don't even like using the iphone with the international charges). Now I can do without both sometimes since the 3g is sufficient to do simple things. Google maps even works.
The pdf support is great too especially since it uses so much less battery life than laptop or ipad. If I am reading docx, I just save as pdf and read on kindle which is easy with usb hookuo. I can annotate with kindle too although a touchscreen would be better.
Overall a great deal especially if you are overseas a lot.
