200-400 bucks just to read a book?
These things need to be >100 bucks to be "worth" it. They also need to get slightlly larger too.

i dont know i think <200 is a decent price to still be worth it if you are some one who reads alot. over time you may save money on using this if you buy the cheaper digital books. my sister and I have already saved alot using these (she saved even more sense she won her ereader was jealous at the time because i had no ereader).
who taught you guys math? lol >100 is greater than 100 lol
Anyway.... My GF has a nook, and loves it.
The screen actually looks fantastic, it's like you really reading a page right out of a book.
It doesn't strain your eyes like a bright LCD would.
Also the e-books are cheaper than those in the store.
Having this one small little pad that carries so many books is much better than having shelves full of books also. Plus the price now is really good compared to what it used to cost.
What are you talking about acarzt? they meant to say greater then 100/200. I mean if its only $99 its not worth getting. the higher the price the better it is O.o... lmfao i would say free is the best price <0! :)
I don't read much so i didn't even think about getting one. my cousin offered to get me one but i said whats the point if i won't use it. :(
You could have it just to say you have it lol
i am saying a $200 eread can pay off later because the ereader books are cheaper
Greater than, less than... I was a voracious reader in my youth, and really missed it when my eyes degraded to the point that I couldn't read print without a magnifying glass. And none of the ereaders on the market recently (even the newer ones, which should have known better) was adaptable to low-vision; ironically enough, the ereaders were built for people who have no problems reading real print books.
Fortunately, smaller companies actually listen. While iBooks is as bad as the Kindle app (or the Barnes & Noble iPhone app, or either of their dedicated ereader devices), the Stanza app fills my needs and runs on what I found to be the best music player around: the iPod Touch. I've raved about it elsewhere so I sha'n't now.
But suffice it to say that I would have easily spent $200, or even $1000, to be able to read again. Some people are like that.

how bad is your vision?
The kindle 2 allows you to increase font to pretty large lettering
They probably gave them to third world countries as part of global redistribution! Since they figured people wouldn't actually pay those high prices for that thing:P
Then again they probably just gave them to the countries that manufactured them in the first place, as payment :P
Pretty darn bad, fat78. No reason to give details; suffice it to say that I take a small but high-powered (glass, not plastic) magnifying glass with me everywhere.
The "pretty large" of the Kindle 2 may have been enough if the stroke width was thick enough; but it wasn't, and I would have trouble seeing it. I tried it out when a nice lady in Atlantic City showed me hers. I have the same problem with Microsoft Help.
What about the speak settings? some books have text to speach enabled and it dosnt sound to bad. when listening to books read
Text to speach is limited to certain books. It does not work on all books.
thats why i said some but many books now have it enabled for kindle 2
