  • [For Sale] New Kindle 3G

    Still in its box, 3G + Wifi, never used. Free 3G access worldwide with a built in browser that can show mobile gmail and other basic websites.

    ?90 plus postage.

    Tesco currently sells it for ?149. I'm selling because I ended up with two (long story). I'm a happy Kindle user.

      i wouldve bought it
      "My Job"

      It's not my place to run the boat
      the fog horn I can't blow.

      It's not my place to say just where
      the boat's allowed to go

      It's not my right to dock the boat
      or even clang the bell

      But let the damn thing
      start to sink AND SEE WHO CATCHES HELL!

          I know you have sold the item, but I have a question. This built in browser, would it show a basic version of Facebook? I have looked into this but I can't find much on it.

                  Kindle died an honourable death (ok, it's battery died, but I did replace it with something else)

                    Yes the kindle does display Facebook and most other websites but because it is not really set up for general browsing it isn't the most user friendly experience and some websites cause it to crash. Generally it is best to try and use the mobile versions of sites. There is also a website kinstant.com which tries to convert web pages to be easier viewed on a kindle. Works ok.

                    Last year they introduced a 50mb a month limit on general browsing which is ridiculously small, although there is a function to turn off images which means you can browse a lot more on this allowance without pictures. This was pretty annoying when I was sitting at anchor off China and hit my limit unexpectedly. It used to be unlimited so I was a wee bit annoyed they introduced a limit without any notice. Guess some people were taking the piss a bit with their usage levels.

                      I'm surprised that the unlimited 3G worldwide last so long, I really can't understand how it can be financially viable. I also assume that it wouldn't have taken long for someone to reverse engineer the technology to be able to use the unlimited 3G on another device or phone.

                        Yeah I'm pretty sure that is what happened. An email in advance would be been nice though instead of them just cutting it off without warning!
