Has anyone used a Amazon Kindle 2 in Pakistan? They're not officially avaiable in Pakistan, but given the difficulty (and expense!) buying books in Pakistan I'm planning on getting an ereader.
There are other e-readers, but Amazon has the best selection and prices on books so far.
Worldwide, the Kindle uses 3G or EDGE to access the internet - I was wondering if anyone here knows if it can be hacked to use a local data network?
Before anyone mentions the ipad, it's too fragile, expensive and has a short battery life and other drawbacks to use as a e-reader (at least for someone who reads a lot) - for light reading it's the best - I used the Ipad a bit, and it was really amazing, as long as you're the sort of person who mainly consumes content and doesn't create much.
