    If one buys a book on one's Phone, should it also appear on the Kindle automatically?

    If you use the same account yes, when you sync from the menu.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Little warning, Kindle's do not like being left dead for a while. I've been cycling to work recently so my Kindle hasn't been touched in a couple of months, and I had a lot of trouble coaxing it back to life from dead. A google shows that it's a very common problem and many are simply dead forever when this happens.

    So be warned.

    Too...many...books

    I'm not too worried about the cost of ebooks myself. I'm happy spending a tender on an author I like. I see it as paying for the content. Having said that I would love to wander into Waterstones, browse, buy a physical book and get the ebook delivered to my device.

    And whilst I'm here, does anyone else like the idea of a bigger kindle? I find the current one really uncomfortable to read with one hand. I'm used to reading hardbacks with both hands. A nice hard back sized kindle would go down well with me.

    They already do a bigger Kindle - the DX. It's hideously overpriced, though.

    I wouldn't say no to that. Except the price. It's obviously a few revisions old, I imagine a new one will be coming through soon.

    rI'm getting the Kindle Paperwhite (front/backlit, not sue) form the States, a friend is shipping it over when Amazon.com sends it to him. Knowing our luck in the UK, it'll take a year before it's released here.

    not sure where to ask this, but wanted to see if I can get some help/advice : I want to buy a tablet, but I also want to be able to change the proxy (to one that fakes my IP ... - which I can do on my pc) - is there an OS that allows this ? Android, iOS ? I was thinking maybe on Windows 8 ... ?

    Paperwhite available for preorder on Amazon UK, delivers 25th Oct! Woo! Done and done.

    Sod's law dictates that this is ONE BLEEDING DAY after I setup a Bundlebox account and order one from the US, tsk. Still, cancelled my US order, and I'm willing to take the hit on the $15 I spent on Bundlebox, which I'll actually get refunded should I ever actually use it. On balance, I'm happy, muh rather have UK one for warranty purposes.

    Ordered a wifi paper white. I have the old keyboard kindle which will go to the missus. Really like the idea of the light.

    @yegon - I just asked my friend to cancel the order in the States, and have pre-ordered one here, woohoo. Do you know how much it would have cost in total via Bundlebox? I assume taxes would be payable?

    In my case it was £141, but I think it varies due to currency fluctuations. I'll take the $15 hit on that Bundlebox account (which I'll get back should I ever use it) given that, all in, it's costing me £118.36 instead of £141 that I was looking at last night!

    My gf has the Kindle 3 (with keyboard) and loves it. Is there any reason to get her one of the newer ones?

    What does the paperwhite do for glare etc? Or is still reading in the sun fine and dandy?

    Their ads specifically talk about being readable in direct sunlight. It's exactly the same screen type as the other einks (nonreflective surface), just with much improved contrast and a built-in frontlight.

    Bugger, I was hoping to pick up a paperwhite in the states, but now it's available here I might as well order one now.

    So, I now have a practically new ( 2 months old), immaculate kindle 4 for sale, including an official amazon leather case with light (bought 1 month ago for £43) in a rather fetching olive colour...

    Reading a couple of US reviews of the paperwhite they mention the basic version with ads and the ad-free version for $20 more. Which version do we get (there doesn't seem to be a choice)?

    Only just placed my order for this seeing as all I have done since May-ish time is saved, saved, saved my wages and quite fancy treating myself to a Kindle ... and my very first one too!

    Not too fussed about a cover (£32?!) although is it worth buying a sleeve, or is the Kindle fairly robust anyway?

    Dear Kindle Customer,

    We have good news. You are entitled to a credit for some of your past e-book purchases as a result of legal settlements between several major e-book publishers and the Attorneys General of most U.S. states and territories, including yours. You do not need to do anything to receive this credit. We will contact you when the credit is applied to your Amazon.com account if the Court approves the settlements in February 2013.

    Hachette, Harper Collins, and Simon & Schuster have settled an antitrust lawsuit about e-book prices. Under the proposed settlements, the publishers will provide funds for a credit that will be applied directly to your Amazon.com account. If the Court approves the settlements, the account credit will appear automatically and can be used to purchase Kindle books or print books. While we will not know the amount of your credit until the Court approves the settlements, the Attorneys General estimate that it will range from $0.30 to $1.32 for every eligible Kindle book that you purchased between April 2010 and May 2012. Alternatively, you may request a check in the amount of your credit by following the instructions included in the formal notice of the settlements, set forth below. You can learn more about the settlements here:
    www.amazon.com/help/agencyebooksettlements

    In addition to the account credit, the settlements impose limitations on the publishers’ ability to set e-book prices. We think these settlements are a big win for customers and look forward to lowering prices on more Kindle books in the future.

    Thank you for being a Kindle customer.

    The Amazon Kindle Team
    \o/

    @meme be interested to see if this is applied in the UK, not really bothered by the refund but competitive pricing can only be good for the consumer!
