The internet is full of Amazon Kindle 2 review, tips and tricks and hacks. I will not talk here about these things because Kindle 2 is almost one year out and it is too late to talk about these things. What I am gonna talk about is my first impression and my experience of Kindle in Jordan.
I got a chance to bought the international kindle during my visit to Canada after reducing its price, what’s amazing that the package was delivered before the schedule time to my hotel room, and Amazon calculate all import and tax services for me, I didn’t have to pay anything for the customs and delivery company.
The 3G service work great on the Kindle, I tried to purchase different books from Amazon website and on less than 1 min it was downloaded on my Kindle.
On Heathrow airport, I have to pay for the internet connection, but what I did is using my Kindle browser to check emails and do some tweets all free using the free 3G connection. Don’t expect too much from the kindle browser it remind me with the earliest version of the browsers but it will do the job if you don’t have internet connection.
The problem of the Amazon Kindle in Jordan, the whisper service is working in Jordan as GPRS/EDGE I tried to purchase sample book and also less than 60 sec it was on my Kindle.
I tried to use different PDF files to see how it is practical to read on kindle; of course I used PDF with Arabic font. You can see how Kindle handle the Quran and how amazing and clear view you can have.
I am very satisfied with my kindle, Kindle definitely will change your reading experience and you will enjoy reading without eye strains.
