My parents are currently in America and will be for another month or so. They have kindly offered to buy me a Kindle for birthday/Christmas <woop> but there are loads more Kindles available in the US and I can't bloody decide!
I am very tempted by the Kindle Fire but realistically I don't need it (we have a tablet/laptop), the battery obviously doesn't last as long, it's twice as heavy and I think for reading in bed that might be an issue, plus being sensible it's probably better to wait for the Fire 2 to come out once they've sorted out all the problems with it.
But I'm really tempted by the Kindle Touch... as long as it would definitely work here. Has anyone bought one there and used it here?
(Yes, yes, another 'my diamond shoes are too tight' kind of dilemma )
I haven't done it with the new gen, but did with the original Kindle, it was fine. Just need a UK adapter for it. I also had to change my amazon account for it to a UK one (just because I preferred the UK site book choice).
I wouldn't want the kindle fire at all. It looks like a backlit screen similar to the iPad. I was trying to read on my iPad in the conservatory today and couldn't and had to swap to my kindle as there was no much screen reflection on the iPad. It's why the kindle screen is better on holiday as well.
I may be wrong but I thought to have an American kindle you needed an American email address?
