Kindle Keyboard from Ammo
Summary - nice concept, very limited use, great support, wish I'd bought a tablet instead.
Don't like - inability to use the wifi as an internet tool - except for buying books from Ammo.
Don't like - useless music player - no means to select what is playing, nor skip tracks.
Don't like - battery problems, seems to be a software glitch which runs down batteries on a day or two.
Don't like - lack of french language ebooks from the minor authors and authoresses. Seems wily french publishers prefer to sell books. Don't bother looking on canadian sites, same problem.
Don't like - wifi re-connection, if leaving the home wifi range, upon return you have to enter the whole damn router code to get back in. Result I never use wifi on the Kindle.
Don't like - the awkwardness when using dictionaries, especially as you have to re-allocate the duty dictionary whenever you want to change language. A real pain.
Love - the support, very quick response, effective and they follow up. Five stars for this aspect.
Like - the feel in the hand.
Like - the ease of carrying dozens of books when travelling, but as we usually carry a netbook anyway (the Kindle being useless for internet) we can read books on the netbook - and in all formats without having to convert files.
