What I Read

RE: my voyage starts this evening :)

I have just put my old kindle (keyboard) and the voyage 3g side by side and the difference is astounding. Although my keyboard is still a very readable device by comparison the voyage is so crisp, bright and with so many more imputs and connections (ie link with goodreads) I have actually not got a case for the device yet so i ordered the origami case from John Lewis (only the best for this baby) I should have on Tuesday and until then I will only look at this slick and modern reading machine Smile

Yep areoplane mode is the new wifi off/on.  Though you won't be able to sync the last page read info between the Voyage and your Kindle Keyboard if you have wi fi off.

Also, when you buy new books or download existing books from Amazon, you will now have the choice of which of your two Kindle's you want to download them to, They won't automatically appear on both, you'd have to download them to each Kindle separately to do that.

One other thing that might catch you out is that the newer Kindle's list books a little differently than your old Kindle Keyboard. Depending on the settings you select on your book library page, the Voyage will show the books stored in your Amazon cloud (i.e. any books you've ever bought on Amazon) and not necessarily those you have on the device. With the most recent firmware updates ( 5.7.2 and newer) don't set it to show you "All" instead you select "Downloaded" and "All Items", respectively.

The Voyage is far, far superior to look at compared to the Kindle Keyboard. Even putting the Voyage and the Paperwhite side by side you can see the text on the Voyage looks much crisper and clearer. Hope you enjoy it :-)

some great advice L_macd I did wonder if ebooks would go to both kindles. I suspect I will read the voyage now and not the keyboard as the difference is staggering
