Just ordered myself one as an early xmas present. 2 week waiting list though, seems pretty popular.
Anyone here got one yet?
Is this a different kind of iPad?
- Just for ebooksVanDerFull
I still have the second one. It's collecting dust.
I'd like one.
Nice dust collector!
They look like they were made for old people living in 2045.
- haha, yes.akrokdesign
- looks legitplash
- yep, I'd like one.lukus_W
The third version does look better. The connection speed for surfing is shit on the second version though.
The K3 is a huge improvement. The contrast is much better and the device is smaller than the K2. I likey.
Why would you ever surf on a Kindle...you can, of course, but why? You can also listen to music.

The wifi and surfing is just a bonus, mainly a device for reading books. The display doesn't make your eyes tired like the backlight of an Ipad might, and the battery lasts for a month...
I love my Kindle. It works especially well with InstaPaper
Is surfing faster on V3?
I really don't get the Kindle, it's like an old calculator but with letters. Get an Ipad, or a real book.
- You don't need to charge it - it's nice for reading .. It's small and portable - and you can get a lot of books on the device.lukus_W

i think its niceHombre_Lobo
i'll buy it if it drops in price. like $50-$60.... just to keep somewhere in the house to display black and white novels.
but most things that i read would be better with a color screen and photos. i played with the kindle and navigating it's functions is annoying. rather surf via a touchscreen. i think the iPad is the way to to. But the iPad is still expensive. Waiting for it to drop to normal pricing vs new gadget on the block from Apple price.
The advantage of a Kindle is that it's less straining on the eyes, and you can order a book in less than 5 minutes. For me, it's been collecting dust because I found most of the books I buy are design related, and I need to see it in color.
For avid readers of text-based books (not those with a great deal of imagery), the Kindle is a nice product. My folks swear by it, as they are avid travelers and often take their Kindle with them—which contains over fifty books at a time.
But if you need more than a device that will allow you to carry tons of books without the tons of books, and occasionally read some online stuff, the Kindle's not for you.
There's also the Kindle app for iPad. I have the Kindle app for iPhone and it's great because if I'm out and about with some time on my hands, my books are synced and I can pick up where I left off on the device. That rocks!
