Product Review: Kindle update

Kindle 3G Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 3G Works Globally, 6" Display - with New E Ink (Pearl) TechnologyAn update:  I did end up ordering the kindle 3 and have had it a few weeks now.  I love it.  It’s even lighter than the kindle 2, has more than double the book storage capability (3500 books!), the battery life is greatly increased (up to a month with wi-fi off!) and the e-ink contrast is dramatically increased, which decreases eye strain even more.  I was unsure if it would be a huge improvement and was very pleasantly surprised.

I ordered the 3G version because I wanted white but I do love the versatility of having 3G available wherever I go.  The wi-fi version only comes in the new graphite color.  If you have wi-fi set up at home or are often in areas that have wi-fi, the wi-fi version will probably be fine for you.

The kindle 3 is a fantastic gift idea for any occasion for yourself or a  loved one.

Cole Haan Hand-Stained Pebble Grain Leather Kindle Cover with Hinge (Fits 6" Display, Latest Generation Kindle), BurgundySince the kindle 3 is lighter, it feels more delicate.  I highly recommend a cover for it for your peace of mind, whichever type suits your needs better.  I bought the Cole Haan leather cover in Burgundy which adds a very luxurious feel to the reading experience, making it feel a great deal like reading a leather-bound book.
