The kindle 3 is great for what it’s meant to be, a simple device for reading long form works.
The upgrade from kindle 1 to kindle 2 wasn’t nearly as dramatic as 2 to 3.
The kindle 3 is thin and light. The page refresh is fast and the battery life appears to be ridiculously good.
The new kindle cases have a light built in for those dark reading sessions.
I’ve got ipads and every other device. The kindle is bar far the best reading device. I do plenty of staring at screens and the kindle 3 does an even better job than the 2 of being less screen like than all other reading devices.
I cannot stress enough about the greatness of having a single purpose device for reading. Ipads, iPhones, and what not are full of distractions that unless you completely lock down and disconnect your device overwhelm the reading experience.
Did I mention this thing slips into cargo short pockets perfectly?
I’ve said this in previous posts and ill reiterate it here: no other digital bookstore compares to amazon. They simply have thousands more titles that I want to read. Oh, and they actually categorize books and provide more useful filters than iBooks or the nook estore. I can barely navigate the other stores. And certainly can’t wander the digital stacks at all like I do in the physical world.
Yeah, I’m a kindle fan.
