Summary: The product description is deceptive. I purchased it for the 3G which I find out is NOT avaialble on the Kindle 2, after I purchased it. The seller didn't know what 3G was. The term Wi-Fi + 3G (Unlocked) is deceptive advertising. Other than that it is fine except for the battery life is short.
Excerpt: The kindle is a great tool for travel. I love to read multiple books at a time and with the kindle I can without carrying bulky books around. I wish the screen had some type of color- I would love to see color graphics.
Excerpt: I was really excited to get my Kindle. I thought it would be so much easier! But it wasn't. First it wouldn't load the screen, the when I left it to charge, it broke!! I'm sticking to paper from now on!
Excerpt: The Kindle 2 has its pros and cons. I am not a user of the first generation of Kindle, but it seems like the Kindle 2 has several improvements. It is easy to hold and easy to get used to a new way of reading. What I love about the Kindle is that I can almost instantly find a book I am interested in and be reading it in minutes. I usually read the book section of the Post and any new books that seem interesting I find and preview to see if I am interested in buying them.
Excerpt: I've been an avid reader since about sixth grade and I never travel with less than five books. The Kindle has allowed me to bring many more books on vacation and pack in carry-on bags. The Kindle holds it's battery for many hours with the wireless feature turned off. It also has a great picture and you can read it in bright day light which makes it ideal for the beach!
Excerpt: I bought the Kindle 2 a couple years ago now. I really like reading books on a digital reader but I'm starting to miss books. I mean buying a "digital" book you can't hold it, sell it, share it with friends. It just sits on the computer. If you want someone else to read it, they have to go buy it too instead of loaning it out. I like the concept but I'm frugal and do not spend money on things that i do not need and that is books.
Excerpt: This was a brilliant idea. Why lug around heavy books when you can buy a device and then purchase electronic versions of the book to view with the reader? It's a pricey device but worth the investment if you a devout reader. It's ideal to use if you travel alot, or have to read alot of text for school. It's amazon's #1 selling item. It's very popular. I can see the reason why. I borrowed my older sister's so I could use it for the weekend.
happy , . I have seen the kindle 2 for less I think I paid to must for it.

Summary: I purchased this product for my daughter. I really liked the kindle 2. I hope my daughter like it she is getting it for her birthday. I wished I would have purchased a newer on like a kindle 3. I think she would have like that better but overall happy with it.
Summary: Very well designed device! Very thin and good looking! Fits very well in your hand! But all the good aspects of this device are known! I have to say that I'm very dissapointed with the PDF support. Amazon has published an update to natively support the PDF format but the zooming feature is dissapointingly poor.
