My Kindle ... So Far
- Kindle is perfect for reading novels.
- In order to read pdf files on my kindle, I need to use a software to convert them to the kindle format, the output is not the same as the original pdf file, its not good specially when there are pictures.
- Text to speech is not that great, its just like any text to speech software on the net, audio books are different. (Why are they suing amazon?!)
- Battery life is great. with a single charge it can stay up for a week.
- Storage is around 1.4 GB. enough for kindle books but not enough for my MP3s.
- Reading technical books on my kindle is hard, specially because I tend to go faster thru technical books and I only read specific pages/articles. Kindle is slow for that.
- I had to travel two times this month and I enjoyed having my kindle with me. It's light! and I had so many choices on it.
- I can now buy any magazine from amazon, the format is different on the kindle, you only get a list of articles from the magazine. (tried newsweek)
- Writing notes on the kindle is hard, the keyboard is hard to use and kindle is slow.
looks like a nice device...
wat i like about it is that its portable...bs i still prefer a real book on any given normal day ;)
I also prefer real books :)
I even print research papers or any articles I find interesting on the web.
i prefer real books since nothing can beat the smell and feeling of the book:)
Is the battery removable?
SAVE THE TREES! USE "FILE-> SAVE AS"!!!
MBH, the whole point is to avoid reading long articles and papers electronically, be them online papers or "SAVED AS" on my disk.
Besides, I don't print on papers made of wood-based material. I use re-cycled cans.
I think I'll wait for improvements ;p
i love it, although i am real book fan, but i find this one amazing, can i ask how much does it cost?
Glad you're liking it. Hmmm.. that magazine thing struck me. I wanna subscribe but Aramex cost is higher than the magazine it self.
And yeah, you should travel more often :)
according to amazon there are only 25 magazines you can subscribe to. Is that true or are there more?
Amu: it is :)
Gee: yes :)
ĐǻñĎõøðñ: its very portable!
Nosayba: u should stop printing :p
zuz: hmm madri :p
MBH: i told u madri :p
Aurous: colored ereader would be great :p
Brownie: costs 359$
bashar: i love it :)
Kazeh: it is :)
Mark: yes 25 magazines and 34 newspaper :)
Allah ehaneech feeh :)
a7es actually having a book in your hand and flipping its pages
just has a different feel to it
wow, thnx for the Kindle review :)
i've been thinking of getting me one myself since it first appeared .. but im still not 100% sure.
which kindle u have? the older one or the newer one? i read that its more improved than the first one.
i dont know when will i get me one .. maybe i shall wait till they come up with a more advanced one ...
Nimo, get the new Kindle 2 DX... it is way better than the one you have. :)
I support people to use kindles and stop using the regular books.. lets save the trees...
no doubt the feel of real books is never like anything else.
