<<<excuse my ignorance>>>... about to order a Kindle. Two versions of the Kindle, only difference I think is that one is 3G, and is £41 more expensive. I don't mind paying more if it would be worth it. Can someone explain, simply, what benefit there would be in having 3G please?
gosh, lots of quick answers - thanks! You're saying what I thought i'd understood... we do have wireless at home. Would the wireless version allow us to download books abroad if we ran out while on holiday or someone recommended something while we were away, e.g. if we were in a wi-fi area?
I have the previous version which was only available as 3G. If I were buying a new one then I would still go for the 3G one as I love the fact that I can spontaneously decide to download a book wherever I am. Or if I finish my book sooner than anticipated. I was sitting on the beach in France last year, downloading books.
If I were more organized then I would perhaps not need it.
Used my 3g one in Dominican rep, got newspaper daily - free 14 day trial- downloaded books ad hoc AND could bod on Facebook, BBC news, mumsnet, etc without paying extortionate roaming fees. I love mine, it's very clever.
