My Mk 1b Kindle died on me last night, I am desolated ! The Mk 1b is the one with an on-screen keyboard but is not a touch screen so it probably didn't owe me very much !
Budget - preferably less than £UK 100
OS - indifferent
Use - mainly reading e-books, mostly Mobi format, some PDF, ability to read e-mails and play lightweight games like Sudoku would be nice but not essential
Screen size - 6 - 7 inches, an iPad for example would be too big.
This would be for home and holiday use.
One thing at a time would be sufficient.
A USB port for connection to a computer would be important.
I have taken a quick look around some reviews and the current basic Kindle does not seem to be very well received, but there is a huge range of alternatives - with a huge range of prices - and I am more than willing to listen to advice.
