Question by Wh0 DaT?: i want an Amazon Kindle 2 for Christmas, is it worth paying to get 3G or is that a waste?
im just wondering bc i didn’t know if like theirs apps u can get for it. if u can get social networking from it.
Answer by NONE Kindle 2 isn’t available unless you’re talking about a used one. Kindle 3 is the first one with wi-fi and also a wi-fi plus 3G model. The cellular service is from AT&T so unless you live in or frequently travel to an area where they provide cellular service, the additional $ 50 for the 3G version is probably not worth it. Both versions of K3 have an “experimental” browser which is cumbersome and extremely slow, slower via 3G than via wi-fi. If you’re thinking this is a viable substitute for a smart phone, netbook or tablet, it’s not; not by a long shot. The only reason that any e-book readers are internet-connectible is so that the linked stores can sell e-books, not so they can pay for bandwidth for people unwilling to pay for cellular, tethering or broadband. No e-ink device is capable of flash or any other video nor capable of displaying color.
Question by Diane: What’s better, the Kindle by Amazon, or the “Nook” by Barnes & Noble?
Hi. Thank you for your kind consideration of this answer. It would be nice if you have personal experience with one of the electronic reading devices that are selling now. This is a big purchase for me on my current budget (for a Christmas gift), so I would like to make the best choice possible. How is it better than just reading a book? (Okay, so I’m older – - that’s why I need your help with this question). Happy Holidays.
Answer by Uncle Pennybags I’ve looked at both. Both have advantages and disadvantages. The Nook seems to be a little more multi-purpose than the Kindle. A little, not a lot.
However, I’m not convinced that in 5 years, Barnes and Noble will still be out there. I suspect in the next few years, it may go bankrupt or get swallowed up by something else. It’s possible the Nook may be orphaned. Not only that, but the Nook seems to be an after thought. B&N’s primary business seems to be selling physical books.
I do have faith in Amazon. They are a low overhead very dynamic and prosperous company. The Kindle is a key part of their strategy to sell more and more books digitally rather than shipping out hardcopy ones.
Question by j_kubart: What is the difference between the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes and Noble Nook?
Answer by e-Urukhai Firstly, it is the operating system. Nook has android, which is way better for programming purposes, because it has all the latest SDK kits, meaning, that anyone who has any kind of knowledge in JAVA can make simple applications/plugins for it. Therefore, there are many extra applications released, especially for the new, colored nook.
Downside of nook is that it ships within USA only (some other countries too). I live in northern Europe, and had to use mail-forwarding services to ship it over here. However, kindle can be shipped more or less, world-wide.
You should check the comparison sheets for both of em. I suggest you to get the new nook. Or better yet none of these.
There is a new tablet, called ADAM (by notion ink). Which has both display types in it – e-ink and LCD. You can switch between those modes, meaning, e-ink when you want to read and LCD when you want to view media – movies, music clips, game applications etc.

Amazon announced three new Kindle E-Readers this week, including the Kindle Fire Android tablet and Kindle Touch. The third offering is a bare bones reader simply called Kindle. Unlike previous Kinde E-Readers, this new Kindle includes no keyboard, no speakers, and no headphone jack. It’s 18% smaller, weighs under 6 ounces, and fits nicely in hand for easy reading. Like the previous 3 generations of Kindle, this new one uses E Ink for a crisp reading experience. WiFi connectivity allows you to download ebooks quickly. At the price point, the new Kindle makes a great starting point for getting into ebooks. Video Rating: 4 / 5
