“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” ~ Arthur C. Clarke
I replaced my Kindle HD 2012 with this year’s new HDX. I had some nitnoid problems with the HD that I never could cure. So I was keen to see if the new Kindle fixed these problems. After a month of use, I’ happy to say they have. I’ve even used the Mayday feature. Since I didn’t have any family or friends to gift my HD to, I sold it on FB for $100 in about 45 minutes. So, maybe I could have been more clever about that and asked for more money.
What is the biggest plus for this device? I no longer have to reboot my Kindle three to four times a day. I use the device 2 to 4 hours a day as part of my commute on the bus. I must admit I am a power user, even paying extra to use the 3g (now 4G) connectivity. Tumblr was guaranteed to bring down the device two to three times in an hour of use!
I am putting this comparison chart here so that I’ll have this long after it disappears from the Internet:
But my books, magazines, movies, music, and email are all easily available. Oh, and I purchased the way cool leather Origami case which is a very nice accoutrement for the tablet. I can stand very easily either way and looks nice too. With just under 30 days of use, I am very happy with the device. And having all my media available automatically from the Amazon cloud was a huge reason that I stayed with the Kindle platform.
