Amazon Kindle Fire HDX

Originally, I thought of getting the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite to replace my Kindle Keyboard which I thought was not possible to be fixed. But after a lot of researching and finally successful in dismantling my Kindle Keyboard and replacing the broken screen….I started to realise that I just simply cannot let go of my Kindle Keyboard, I love it too much! It would therefore pointless for me to get the Paperwhite, because the only differences between these two devices are a touchscreen and backlighting….features that I can actually live without. Hence I decided that in order to get a better …

Amazon Kindle screen repair

Last night I discovered that my precious Amazon Kindle (3rd generation) which has been with me for at least a year — and that after I claimed warranty for the first unit I had from the company — has broken its screen display again. Much like what I had faced before with the first unit that I had, the screensaver is frozen and no amount of resetting the device or powering it up will solve the issue. So I told the vendor I bought it from about it and he suggested that I might as well ditch it and get …

Kindle Paperwhite versus the Kobo Glo

I am very happy with my current Amazon Kindle 3 (renamed to Kindle Keyboard after Amazon released several new e-book readers with different tech) but since its technology is quite dated now, I do want to get something new to keep up with current times.

However, I think that I am leaning towards the idea of getting the Kobo Glo since the backlight of …

Amazon Kindle 3 video review

After watching the above Amazon Kindle 3 video review from Mobile Tech Review on YouTube, I’ve made up my mind to get the Kindle 3 once I have the sufficient funds to do so. At the same time, it so happens I came across this Malaysian online store which directly sells the Kindle 3 for RM675 (WiFi-only version). Add the leather case (RM80) and the total would come up to a whooping RM755. Personally I feel that anything above RM500 for an e-book reader is overpriced, but considering the current difficult state of getting a Kindle locally, I guess this …

So many e-Readers to choose from!

I bought a new Acer laptop two days ago, but until today I still cannot make up my mind on which e-book reader to buy. With so many choices in the market today, I am frankly at loss on which e-reader to plunk my money into. The ideal e-book reader for me would be one that can read PDF files, as well as having tons of space to store my e-book files. Wifi support and all that shebang isn’t really necessary, but since we are talking about a lot of money here, those things are definitely something which are value …
