  1. I just bought and returned the Kindle 3G/WiFi special offers model. It is such a limited use, over-hyped device making Amazon tons of money. Their books and magazines selection is so damn limited for what I am interested in. It simply is not worth it. The web browser is such a lame clumsey implementation. The E-Ink screen is dull and hard to read at night without spending more for their lighted cover. Barnes&/Noble at least offers way more magazine selections and books and newspapers. The screen resolution and contrast is extremely poor for images and charts. Charts are not expandable to view in the books I bought so I could not read the charts! What the? Simply poor design. No color neither surely stinks! Better to just by a Tablet or use your PC to download and read books and stuff.
