So I didn’t quite get the phone for Christmas (yet!) but I did get a Kindle. Just the standard one. I have to say I am impressed with it. Functionality is simple but it does its job and easy on the eye. Battery life is exceptional even with WIFI left on. Its hard to gauge such things but I guess a good measure is the extent to which you are conscious of the gadget itself rather than the task or content you are doing or looking at. The Kindle really doesn’t get in the way of the reading experience and I was totally immersed in the “book” I was reading. I can’t bring myself to call them “ebooks”. That just seems wrong somehow. I am sure the author didn’t set out to write an “ebook” in the same way a songwriter doesn’t set out to write an mp3.

The associated android app is ok and it works on my HD2. Something that is not always a given.
