It's sleek and lovely. Charged up it's ready for days of reading pleasure. Expensive, I know, but worth it anyway! After a bit I'll give a critique...

You got the Kindle 2, I take it?

 

I absolutely love my Kindle, but I'm not sure I'll upgrade it. I'd love to have the improved resolution and button placement, but they also took away features. I'm not ready to spend that money again yet.

 

I hope you enjoy it!

I can't understand all of the different gadgets. I want one gadget that does everything. My iphone is the closest thing to it:

 

phone,

iPod

video/TV viewer

SMS texting

eReader for books (like the Kindle)

Web browser

thousands of applications (free and otherwise)

GPS

Google Maps

camara

contacts

calendar

AIM IM capability

Skype capability via FRING

iTunes

alarm clock

MySpace portal

LinkedIn portal

Facebook portal

Movie listings

Digital radio tuner

"remote" to manage iTunes and my AppleTV remotely

New York Times portal

USA Today portal

AP News Portal

Bloomberg Portal

Zagat Guide online portal

Notes

iDiet (to monitor calarie intake and exercise)

Google portal

Wikipedia portal

White and Yellow pages

Current Sports scores portal

Google Earth

Big Oven (10,000 recipes)

Bartender guide portal

OpenTable portal for restaurant reservations

"sitorsquat" to find the cleanest public bathroom nearest you

endless games (free and otherwise)

 

That is just what is on my iPhone and the possibilities are endless - and it's on ONE DEVICE. What more could you ask for?

I agree having more then one or two devices are a bit mind blowing although not an Iphone my Treo does all the same as your phone at a fraction of the price too. Traveling is a synch just the laptop, Treo & clothes.

I understand that Kindle is going to turn off that feature because it is violating the rights of the audio book industry so the Kindle will no longer be doing text to speech synthesis. So we are back to the iPhone doing what the Kindle can do with eReader.

>up4fun / deej do you guys really read enough books to make

>this device cost effective for you?

 

Don't think I've had it long enough to say, and I'm not sure what criteria I'd use. I can say that I'm reading more/more often than before just because it's easy to take a whole library with me wherever I go.
