Can You Help Me Choose My Next E-Reader?
I broke my Kindle yesterday. Smashed the screen--unusable.
Money is a factor. I don't like to spend it.
Please factor this into decision: I don't have a smart phone.
Option 1: Cheapest Kindle, $79
Pros: Cheap, E-ink technology
Cons: No keyboard. I like to play word games, and I like to be able to write notes on what I'm reading.
Option 2: Kindle Touch, $99
Pros: Somewhat cheap, E-ink
Cons: I prefer a keyboard.
Option 3: Kindle Keyboard, $139
Pros: E-ink, keyboard, 3G.
Cons: High premium to pay for a keyboard.
Option 4: Kindle Fire
Pros: Videos (I'm a Prime member), my music is in their Cloud, and I'm a Kindle reading junkie.
Cons: $$$, no e-ink (hard to read without glare), I break & lose things. Also, I want an iPod Touch sometime in the future; this would render the Touch redundant and completely unaffordable. Finally, do I want the option of watching videos and playing games when I should be dedicating time away from home to reading?
Sorry this is so long. Thanks!
