Pulled the trigger on a Kindle 3G

Postby Spicelon » 03 May 2011 19:41

I did a quick search and learned a few of you in here own this dedicated e-reader (or a version of it at least). I did a lot of review reading and such before ordering it, and decided on the Kindle over the Nook and Sony products. What sold me is that nearly every review I read rated the Kindle as the best "dedicated" e-reader, which is really what I wanted. So now that I pulled the trigger, what are you guys finding as the major cons? I know file support is sore point, at least with me, but it's not like I'm sitting on a trove of pirated e-texts anyway. Things you like? Anybody regret buying one?
Poop is funny.
MetaCugel8262 is not.

The web browser built into it is crap, but that's because they don't want you surfing since it's basically free.

I use it still, even though I have an iPad. I use it more for audible books because its a PITA getting those things onto an iPad. It's a great little device and the price is definitely right. Raggy is thinking about buying the large format version.

The (8x11/A4-size?) DX one? I was thinking about getting one of those, too. But then I got the iPad and the Kindle app for it is sufficient for what I'm doing right now (just reading book samples).

I really like the idea of the e-ink. :)
