Kindle

So I've had my kindle for a couple of weeks now what do I think about it.

 

Well size wise it's about the same size as a paperback but an awful lot thinner. It seems quite well put together and should last a while, the buttons seem to be well-made.

 

The text is really clear and easy to read the contrast is stunning and the matte screen mean it's really easy to read in dim light and in really direct sunlight - it shouldn't reflect to much. The text size is good on the smallest size and goes to really quite large print.

 

Turning pages causes the screen to flash black as the next page is drawn, I don't think this is particularly annoying although others disagree !

 

I'm currently getting most of my books from the Gutenburg project and using Calibre to manage the books. Then simply copying to the kindle over USB.

 

The wireless coverage in the UK seems pretty good and the amazon store whilst a little slow is pretty good and the ability to browse amazon on my mac and have the books wirelessly delivered to my kindle is very cool - although I've yet to try this I assume it works.

 

Now all I need is a nice bag for it, luckily I know of a good bag maker.
