Kindle battery problem caught in action

Remember that Kindle battery problem I mentioned earlier? It’s been paparazzied.

Clearly, the Kindle still has about 25% of it’s battery, and it’s complaining about low battery, after which it went almost empty immediately.

    Maybe you have the one that in several shipments is faulty :P hard luck … can’t you just return it!

    bloggylife: Was there such shipment? Then I guess I’m within it. Do you have any idea how much it cost to ship it back? I’ll just stick to it :)

    After reading up a lot about ereaders and thinking it would be a great present to my boyfriend, I have decided to wait for the new samsung that is out. I was going to get a kindle possibly, but it seems to be having a lot of issues, and the features dont quite cut it.

    Bnsofts: As a man, a Kindle would be a perfect gift for me if I didn’t have one. I should note that this is kind of a special issue most people are not facing it seems. Perhaps a bad shipment of some sort. Even with that, I’m loving my Kindle, and given the current position Amazon holds, I would still go and buy a Kindle if I wanted an eBook Reader.

    I don’t know a lot about the Samsung eBook Reader, or in fact nothing at all. But a good eBook reader I think should have:

    - good size to hold, like the Kindle 6″. I didn’t like Kindle XD size.

    - DRM FREE: It’s much better if they sell their ebooks DRM free, Kindle doesn’t ofcourse.

    - Battery life is important.

    - Note taking, bookmarks, built-in dictionary… all stuff in Kindle, make sure you get them with your eBook reader.

    - eBook Pricing. In general, Kindle has best pricing. See this sheet. Although it’s prior to some publishers forced their prices up on Amazon.

    first i went off with a Sony e-reader, and recently i got a cybook. it’s awesome, long battery life and lightweight. supports ePubs and PDFs among other formats.

    Shaymaa: Yeah I recall the Sony one. Why did you ditch it too quick? Did it not live to expectations, or was out-dated by cybook?

    This is a nice comparison of all eBooks support for different file formats.

    I appreciate your support for open formats, and I bet it opens doors for different sellers of the same book. Where do you buy books from? And how is the experience compared to Kindle, with the DRM thing aside?

    I should note most people aren’t getting my misfortunate battery issue.
