  • free internet on kindle 3g

    I just treated myself to a Kindle 3g for reading pdfs on and the free global internet browsing while I'm onboard ship in coastal waters.

    Good news is the forum looks great on it, but it can't manage facebook or hotmail.

    Re: free internet on kindle 3g

    I have a kindle too (went for the wi-fi version rather than 3g) and the forum works very smooth on the browser, very fast. Facebook works on my kindle but occasionally freezes (if you change the screen to landscape beforehand it may help), hotmail almost never gets past loading the inbox before freezing, try gmail The browser is still in early experimental stages anyway..

          No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

              I agree on trying one first as not everyone likes reading from an electronic screen; personally I love it

                          That's unlucky, Chris. But iPhones and iPads break too. Getting it replaced? Should have 1 year warranty.

                          @stronglead, at least you won't starve!
