In what way is this a deal? It's selling at RRP - all you're basically advising of is the £10 off £75 spend which almost everyone is aware of anyway!

Aren't you a happy little soul.

I think the production is outsourced to Foxconn, don't hold me to that, just a guess as they've used Foxconn previously.
#15
@db72 amazon make them.

What's the Amazon fork of Android like to use? I not remotely tempted to try it for myself without hearing a lot of praise first and that there'll be years of support either from Amazon or from a dedicated community.
#17
Does anyone know if Tesco will be selling the Kindle Paperwhite? I'm more interested in that than the Fire.
#18
Would Tesco be seeing the special offer version or the clean one? if its the clean one then its cheaper still.

No this model has a lot better screen and processor, for the extra £30 well worth it.

More of a bargain when this voucher is used on the standard kindle.
Still got to grab this vouchers whilst you can as Amazon never reduce kindles (as they claim to sell them at cost).
Got my Mum a kindle with this same voucher last yr.

because of this http://www.bekkelund.net/2012/10/22/outlawed-by-amazon-drm/ I would never buy an amazon product which tied you into their drm (i.e. this only has amazon appstore not googles so if they feel like denying you access to it, like they did the lady in the link you would have a useless tablet)

just saying. better off with the nexus 7 (or even the ipad mini) plus only being able to use the amazon app sotre means you will get slower updates and less apps to choose from.

These should drop in price after Watchdog showed it tonight, cheap chinese junk is an appropriate description I think. X)

I was thinking of getting the other half a kindle for xmas, simply as a reader. However, this new one seems like a nice price and spec. However she is a very heavy reader and im concerned about the bright screen straining her eyes. She has never used one but when I used a friends kindle touch recently I was really impressed with the nice matt non harsh screen. Does anyone know how this compares when in reading mode, is it bright, adjustable, matt?
Also, as the kindle is clearly moving from a reader to tablet, is the reading experience similar to just using a reading app on other tablets, and as such should I probs be comparing against those too.
thanks in advance for any replies and sorry if this is not strictly discussion about the deal. It seems a decent price to me though.
#26
I am not buying any more tablets until they all come up with a way to stop the screens breaking so easily, just have a look at the amount of tablets with broken screens on ebay, the nexus especially, I will wait for a few months and see if this device has the same problem.

Kindle E-Readers use an e-ink display, which is designed for reading, even in strong sunlight. This is just another Android tablet with an LCD screen because Amazon want a slice of the Android tablet market.

did anyone see watchdog ...amazon kindle on there been shown that their screen dies in under a year after the replacment u need to buy another. hmm wont touch these for a while
#31
thanks fishmaster, thats exactly what I was thinking. the whole point of the kindle was the soft screen, e-ink, whatever it is really impressed me. To read for an hour or two on bright display, well, im sure it would strain the eyes in any light.
If the kindle fire is just like looking at a tablet, if im buying a tablet running android im not sure I want one restricted by amazon's software.

Why would anyone get this over the Nexus 7?

does anyone out there use a reading app on a tablet for reading regularly. I tried a reader on my galaxy s but its not a decent indication as the screen is too small. I guess what im getting at is whether using a full colour LCD display for reading regularly in periods of maybe an hour or two at a time would be too much for the eyes and head ache inducing?

I agree, you are right, the offer is a generic £10 off £75 spend on anything. The heat is on the offer and not on every possible combination of items at Tesco Direct that adds up to £75 spend as there would be tens of thousands of these combinations. Although technical no where else is cheaper for the Kindle but then again tens of thousands of other combinations are not cheaper elsewhere too! E.g. a combination of thermos flasks.

I use my Nexus 7 for reading and it's fine, I normally lower the brightness way down at night though and put on the dark colour scheme so it's easier on my eyes, but I don't really read for more than an hour at a time so I can't really comment on that.

Or maybe there's a corelation between spending capacity for cheaper tablets and clumsy people?
Or a likelyhood to give a cheaper tablet to a child?

I've never had a device, tablet or otherwise, that just breaks by owning it and using it carefully.

The fact that there is a market for scratch removal on console games says it all really.
#38
I think im gonna have to have to go to curry's or pc world and have a play around. I think if I find the brightness too much on a tablet I will get her the paperwhite or even a touch. And to be honest if I was going to get a tablet the nexus would be the main candidate, and hopefully picked up at a bargain price in the pre christmas sales.
Thanks for the input

HDMI output to an external screen, dolby audio, better ecosystem for those existing Amazon e-content shoppers. The clue is that the average number of tablets owned by a tablet owner is more than 1. And even more importantly a typical household that already owns a tablet wouldn't have just a single tablet for everyone in the house. Not every one will agree on a brand.

Ah, HDMI and the better sound I can understand but I wouldn't say the ecosystem, you can't even access the Play store, you're limited to the apps on the Amazon app store.
