    Hi guys

    have you used Kindle Paperwhite E-reader? what are your experience and opinions?

    used to read books on tablet (not comfortable, eyes tired after a while, the glossy reflections were not that easy on eyes). also read the hard copy ( real books :)), but not that convenient to carry a few books at the same time.

    cheers

    I like it. However I've tended to read more on my phone now, just for convenience. I read from time to time, sometimes just in the mall or while I'm waiting for somebody.

    It's excellent for reading while lying down. It's much easier to handle than a book, lighter than a tablet.

    nice, thanks

    They are 6 inch in size. does it feel too small comparing with the usual book?

    I don't find it too small, but then I'm comfortable reading from a phone.

    The screen on the Google XL 2 plus is actually 2.5cm taller than the screen of my Kindle, but 2 cm narrower (viewing in portrait mode).

    They're great for a long trip. The battery lasts for a really long time.

    I don't think the Sim card version is worth it.

    Popped into jbhifi today, they don't have it on display, but had the previous version. Not bad. No glare. A lot more comfortable to read on, and light. :)
