I got a wi-fi only, I didn't realise that the 3g in it could be used all over the world for free.... It's got a v.basic web browser built in, so you could pick your email up and do a bit of browsing when you go on holiday..

I heard someone used it on a cruise once and avoided the £20 per hour the charge onboard - don't know if that is true though.

Ordered thanks, been waiting for this to come back in stock.

304 clubcard points = £9.12 online deals + quidco at 3% bargain!

£20 an hour for what?

Wi-Fi use.

Do you have to pay for the 3g too?
#8
Why does it say 'collection from store only' then on the page it gives home delivery an option, and also in checkout its an option?
I dont understand why I have to travel over 15 miles to collect it.. that kinda puts me off :(

There are no costs in using the 3g in Kindle. That's the beauty of it.

Could this code be used against an ipad2?

I was almost tempted to get one but at £20 an hour plus the price of the ebooks on top of £130. No way. Good deal if you want one but when you think about it you can get about twenty real books for the price of one kindle with no books. And if it's storage that's a problem, use a library where you can order real books for about 50p (any book not just the kindle ones), Still if you need several hundred books with you on the train to work or when you are on holiday its a must!

Never had to worry about losing a £130 paper back or it being nicked or sat on.

Each to their own. Not voting.

What are you on about?

The £20 p/hr was in reference to a charge someone on a cruise avoided by being able to use this instead!
Books in the library have to go back too..

i think you mite of got confused there is no cost in the wifi or 3g there is no monthly contract etc only pay the price for the product then purchase the ebooks you want which range from free up wards
#15
I'm hoping the next Kindle will render PDFs properly. But this is a hot deal if you want a Kindle now.
#16
HOT from me.
#17
The 3g access is free globally but it is not clear if this includes web browsing when roaming or just access to the apple store I have a wifi only and it is great

I hasten to add that I have never paid anything close to £20 per hour for web access on any cruise
#18
The 3G is free and works for lots of web-sites.
However, it does NOT work for quite a few - e.g. it's pretty hopeless on google maps
You wouldn't want to use it unless you were really stuck - but I think it's worth the extra.
It's also described as beta and it would be easy for Amazon to turn it off if
people used it to much.
#19
I'm holding on this one (although it is a hot deal so have voted)

The let down with the kindle is the lack of colour (I read autobiographies) so would feel I was missing out over a book when it comes to the photo sections.

However I'm reliably informed that the Kindle 4 will feature a colour screen but with the same anti glare technology as the Kindle 3

Thanks. I thought £20 an hour was a bit steep! I think I will still stick to buying paper books and using the library for free. I can get 20 books for the price of a kindle give them to friends as presents when I'm done with them. And I get any book I want from the library for pennies, This is good deal if you want a kindle. I have yet to hear of anyone being mugged for a paper back. Sorry if that's off topic.

Thanks for the life & times of Jim Andrews, but why are you even looking at the deal?
#22
can you order on line and get quidco? (still sent to store) or do you have to ring up.
Also there isnt any codes kicking about like the previous deal so as to get the Wifi version cheaper are they.

Heat given.

This is a good deal as the Kindle is not discounted anywhere. There is NO 3G charge and no contract. The Amazon Kindle store is available worldwide (whispernet). Experimental web access is available in many places but not everywhere via 3G, but the wifi will work anywhere in the world that you can access a wifi hotspot. There are literally thousands of free books. You never need to buy a book if you don't want to. Many good Indie authors available for 76p. Kindle support is first class.

I don't work for Amazon!

I woudl say that I have read probably about 30 books that I have downloaded free from the kindle store there are hundreds of free ones it pays for itself very quickly
#25
Anyone know if you can pick up same day or do you have to wait for it to be shipped to the store?
#26
Is there a way to get an extended warranty on this like the one offered by Square Trade on Amazon.co.uk for £29.99 but only when purchased from Amazon? I see myself wanting to take this everywhere with me but worried about breaking/damaging it. Any ideas?
#27
Great. x Cheers. 10% staff discount too! x
#28
That's the same as what I paid for mine in the states after tax + exchange rate!! Hot!
#29
I've seen a friend reading off one of these and it was great, what's it like for web browsing on wifi? Presumambly everything just shows as it would on say an ipad but in black and white or is it more like just wap text only or what?
#30
Pity the Kindle books are so expensive :-(
#31
It's also worth pointing out that the 3g is worldwide, so if you're sat on beach in Spain and think of book you fancy, boom, you've got it! Not data charges.

@shimmasok - browsing/email is pretty rubbish to be honest, it may get you out of a pickle, but its primarily a book reader.
#32
I used my 3g Kindle in Mexico recently completely free to surf any page. Sure it's not great as a browsing device, but I was able to do everything I needed to do. People were complaining about how slow the hotel wifi was anyway.

There are sites that have got good links to other sites that work well with the kindle.

airdsuk - all the books i've bought have been cheaper than their paperback counterparts, plus there are a load of good titles in the public domain (free). plus, as with music and film there are other 'sources' for the books.
#34
Wife's had one for six months and loves it. Not great for web use, but if you're on holiday it's more than acceptable to keep up with news, emails etc - 3G version gives you that for free remember.

She's bought maybe £1.60's worth of books - the rest are free from various (coughs) 'sources', and she reads a lot.

I may consider one, but as far as I know you can't get the Beano, Dandy and Razzle on it - that's about my level.....

It is allright to reading books but its weird to browsing. it takes 5 min to open your email on wifi.

Couldn't agree more.
I recently bought the "Limitless" novel on Kindle for £1 - best thing I've read in years.
And the movie is out on DVD soon... can't wait.

I've yet to find a Kindle book that I wanted which was cheaper in paperbook format.

But, as has been said, with a Kindle, you just buy a license to read a book. Once you've finished, you can't just give it to a friend, like you would with a paperback. But, if you're a gadget freak, this is an incredibly good device, with a B&W screen so good, it's unreal.

When Amazon commands a £40 premium for 3G if they were to suddenly reduce the service to just selling you books I think the outrage it would instill in disgruntled consumers would hurt their sales and reputation too much.

That said I've sat on the fence while they umm'd and ahh'd about the details of their 3G service. The device has a service life of about 5 years although the flash chips may last 10. They are not offering endless bandwidth and it would be very hard for Joe Public to exploit it to their significant expense.

Exactly this is so low power that I will go without and dwell on memories of the 128Mb ARM7 Datawind Ubisurfer that purported to have unlimited internet- but was painfully slow.

dont forget to download kindle apps on your android or iphones. So you can read the book where you left on kindle. may be at work or some where else.
