    • It used to be that you could access any websites on the 3G version, i.e. read RFD while travelling -- is this still the case or have they fixed that loophole?

      Did they give you a delivery date?
      It shows they have stock so maybe you can reorder then cancel whichever one that doesn't ship?

      I would like to know this as well.

      I believe they fixed it a while ago.

      Are you speaking about the twitter workaround?
      Anyone have one to check really quick?

      No, just the regular internet browsing. Some people are able to use it to check email, search in Google, and even tether the connection to other devices. This was possible on the older kindle models, like the kindle 2.

    • You can, and always have been able to, use the browser. But the question is, how limited is that browser over 3G. Apparently it's locked down to only Wikipedia and Amazon book store, but maybe there's a way to bypass that?

      Short Answer:

      Yes, if you're resourceful, you can probably get free international 3G internet bandwith - up to 50MB a month IIRC.

      Long Answer:

      In addition to my Paperwhite, I still have a spare Kindle DX used for reading .PDFs (keeps the fonts and illustration at scale without needing to pan and zoom) and technical documents in direct sunlight conditions. Don't quote me on this, but the bypass should still be possible with older devices on stale firmware.

      Back in the good ol' days, some clever and cheeky folks used to tether the 3G through hacks and used it for months to replace home broadband, including torrents ][_, [[]] ][_,

      ... but I believe Amazon clamped down on that after a few international 3G bills arrived at the accounting desk.

      Even my Paperwhite 1st Gen 3G used to be able to launch into a full fledged Google search window from hacking the built-in Kindle social media account integration (I believe the vulnerability, at the time, lay in Twitter short link redirection.) I tried it once at an airport and it was 100% working. The novelty quickly wore off and I haven't recently tried to see if it still works.

      The refresh rate on e-ink was horrible while scrolling; images were either too dark or washed out. Some web pages weren't working at all. Poorly optimized pages not meeting web standards are problematic... so are things like certain types of account sign in security, javascript, server side stuff. Don't even think about flash. At the most basic technical level, I guess the browser somewhat works in an emergency situation and your life is in danger. I could do gmail and Facebook fine. Basically the browser is half-assed (read: "Experimental.")

      Again, don't quote me on this, but I believe the bandwidth limit is now 50MB a month tied either to the device MAC address, or signed-in / registered Amazon account, or both.

      It's still plenty for ebook transfers, automatically sending .txt and .mobi documents to yourself through dropbox, and checking gmail, direct translations and etymology, direct linking to wikipedia from a word, a list of directions through Google Maps while international etc. in a pinch in the middle of a park or on the beach at an international resort... but the free-for-all Interwebz ride is pretty much over.

    • I, too, recall that there was once a hack for the old Kindle 3G so you can tether your phone to it to use the lifetime free data with the Kindle. Does anyone know if there is a similar workaround for the current generation of Kindle? I don't fathom one exists as the news would have spread fast and quick on the interweb to make big news.

      The reading on a kindle is more akin to reading on paper, less strain on the eyes, less light coming in all the time..

      Kindle is smaller, more compact, more travel friendly as it's not aluminum finish, etc.

      That being said, I am still on the fence of buying an e-reader, because I don't read enough to justify buying another gadget.

      you looking at a tablet screen, and you can adjust brightness to any level, still not sure of the difference, i know it is cheaper but to have yet another device...

    • I just received mine from the last sale. I am thoroughly impressed with the eink type displays. You can use Calibre to sideload and convert other formats to mobi which Kindle is native to. Big plus is that its so much lighter, and consumes much less power vs tabs. You can email yourself books which is neat. I have seen some comparison videos between reading on ipad vs kindle. Yes the Ipad is more versatile and can be adept to reading, but used solely for reading? paperwhite beats it hands down.

      You need to look at a Kindle in person. It's not a tablet screen. It's not back-lit so basically the same as ink. This is also a downside as you can't read without light. It's also lighter and cheaper than a tablet and the battery lasts much longer so reading on the beach for example is much more convenient.
