  1. Gogi I have paperwhite kindle and also the basic kindle. I agree Kindle is better than a tablet for reading lot of text but the issues Ive discovered are :
    1. Screen too small for a speed reader like me – 8 inch would be perfect – nearly one page on a screen
    2. Very old looking interface
    3. flash at every page turn
    Also I notice it really eats up my wifi bandwidth so I keep it on airplane mode unless I need to refresh the library.

    Is there any better technology available abroad?

    1. ??? yes I did, and all I want to say is, hats off to the courage of all those people who have commented that so so tablet/phone is much better than these kindles, completely contradicting Gogi brother who says these kindles are excellent buy for book readers and has given ratings between 4.5 to 4.8 to them.

      1. If you know the difference between E-Ink screen and the ones used on the Tables / phones you will understand, but…..

        1. Yes, completely agree, but people wont understand this if you can see their comments on all your reviews.

          1. Ya they will not understand…it’s a rocket science.. Tht E-ink just produce better black n white.. As AMOLED display better black than IPS screen ??lol

        2. Gogi bro, see the comments of Siddharth and you will realise how immature such people are, they still think tablet/phone screens are better than paper like screen of kindles.

          1. Ignore them, as mentioned Kindle is for book lovers, reading novels, bestsellers etc, you can read on phone / tablets but not for long and outdoor under sun, forget it.
