Expensive as hell, but once the price goes down, may be worth it.
I have been reading reviews of the Octovo Solis on Amazon also, and I think I may prefer that one.
I guess the Kandle is useful for couples when one wishes to sleep and the other to read, but that situation doesn't apply to me.
Conclusion....Thumbs down. Not worth the $25.
Any WiFi connection will require passwords if they are normally password-protected. Do you have WiFi at home for your computer? If so, you should be able to connect to that one for sure, because I assume you know the password ;-) Some stores and other places have free WiFi, so you would not need a password. Starbucks, for example - I think, does not require a password.
If you purchased the WiFi kindle ($139) that will be the only way you can connect wirelessly. If you purchased the WiFi + 3G ($189), your kindle will look for a WiFi spot first and, if it finds one, ask if you want to connect to it. If you don't want to, or if there aren't any, it will automatically connect to 3G, EDGE or whatever AT&T cell phone service it finds.
Of course you can always download via USB from your computer.
Please feel free to ask any questions here.
I've never been to a hotspot. Never even been to a Starbucks. I lead a very dull life. Thanks for your help, and wish me luck. I hope I make it back alive.
When you get to Starbucks, buy a really good coffee, then turn on the kindle. Press the menu button and select "Turn on Wireless" . Then see what happens.
Good luck. If you don't report back in 24 hours, we will send LTers out for search and rescue.
ETA: If CS is suggesting that you purchase a router, it might be easier to return the WiFi kindle and purchase the WiFi + 3G version for the extra $50, so that you can connect via AT&T's service. No monthly cost for the service. In that case, you should first make sure that you have coverage at your home. Check here: http://client0.cellmaps.com/viewer.html?cov=1
So call off the LT search & rescue effort, and thanks again.
Have fun with your kindle! I love mine! It opened up a whole new world of books for me.
I may still invest in a booklight, but I think i'll try a cheap one I can pick up in a store first. I'm probably setting myself up for disappointment, but I'm nearly broke so not much choice in the matter :). Never mind, the kindle makes being poverty stricken extremely bearable.
I will probably wait for the m-edge covers to go with the light I already have, but I thought if I ever wanted to read sans cover, I would need a clip-on.
You do have to have good batteries though - after a while the light weakens and doesn't illuminate the whole page. They last quite a good while though.
I think it's a really neat design.
It's also very, very light and fits the K 3 perfectly, without obscuring any words on the screen. I'm hoping the battery life won't be terrible, but I'll stock up on watch batteries just in case. It was really cheap too, and so far I have to say I just love it.
I like it however the light tends to lose brightness pretty fast. To get that "brightness" back you need to replace the batteries. That may not be a big deal for some but I live overseas and they don't sell them here so I end up having to order $3.00 batteries off line and pay shipping from them.
My girl-friend has the light that slide into your her cover and she loves it. Haven’t heard her complain once.
I will say this about the Kandle, I have a three year old and she tends to "take" all my books lights, the Kandle has held up and not broke. That's a plus for me!
