Kindle Paperwhite 3G (2012). 4.9 5 30 32
No plug for mains charging No actual plug for mains charging is a little inconvenient . Other than that a great item. 15 July 2014
Read more now. Great bit of kit. It's as easy to read on a bright sunny beach as it is in a darkened bedroom. The built-in light is adjustable for brightness and does not make your eyes ache.It is so much easier than holding pages open in bed. I would also recommend buying the leather case to go with it as it not only protects the Kindle, it also puts it into sleep mode when closed and restarts the page where you left off when you open it. The 3G is great and you don't need wi-fi to download books etc. 15 July 2014
Kindle Paperwhite 3G I love this product. I used to read my kindle books on my iPad but this is so much better. It doesn't matter if it is sunny and it is soooo light. I am going on holiday soon and I am so excited about taking this with me. My daughter can use the iPad and I can use this. Previously I had to wait till she was asleep. I recommend this product. It's brilliant. 15 July 2014
glad that I upgraded glad that I upgraded to The paper white is light weight ,easy to hold and great to read in the has taken a bit of getting used to from the basic kindle as buttons and functions are slightly different,but like everything we soon get used to changes.The thing that I find the most awkward is the fiddly button at the bottom which is used to turn on/off your kindle or put it on idle.for me a bigger push button on the front of the kindle would be easier.(especialy for us ladies with nails!!) 08 July 2014
Good value for money This was bought as a birthday present, and was greatly accepted and appreciated. I would certainly recommend it. 03 July 2014
