Default Which Kindle to go for ?

basic @ 5,000, previous gen paperwhite @ 9,000 , latest paperwhite @11,000

(1) It is cheaper on Amazon.com than amazo.in, but warranty,replacement etc issue appears.

(2) As there is just 1 year warranty and no repair is possible especially in smaller cities, is it is worth to invest 11k in it ?

(3) barring dark room reading,is not 5k one is sufficient ?

or 8K one to go for ?

Kindle users what you say ?

My brother gifted Nook ( brought from US ) to my cousin who uses it in his hostel where other devices including mobiles are forbidden . Its basic version has lights for reading and also supports pdf files. Take a look at it if any of ur friends have that . Then ask someone from US to bring it for you .

Kindle users what you say ?

I have a basic kindle w/o the touch screen. It gets the job done, but the quality of the display is not the best out there. I use it only for reading under sunlight, so I dont feel the absence of the backlight. If i need to read a kindle book in the dark, i just switch over to my ipad with the kindle app. If I were to get a new kindle, then it would be a paperwhite because of the better display and longer battery life.

The paperwhite has better screen resolution, so that will make all text look better. I would wait for amazon to announce some discounts and get the current generation paperwhite.

Another option would be to get the base kindle from amazon and if you dont like it, then return to amazon and get the paperwhite. If you still dont like the thing, you can return it to amazon for a refund.

The problem with nook is that you cant use the kindle store on it. The kindle store has a large collection of ebooks and the kindles are pretty fine devices.

presently, 11k one is not being offered-either go for ANPW 3g for 14k or PGPW 3g for 9k !!!

I would not go for any of the models with a 3g/cellular network. You can always set up portable hotspot on your cell phone and use that to connect a regular wifi kindle model to the internet for sync.

Well, though 3G models are wi-fi enabled, but there is no sense in paying extra for 3G-when either one has Wi-fi or by using your suggestion of creating a hot-spot.

It's better to wait till they make wi-fi only models available again.

Even wi-fi will not be too useful for me as I got to read PDFs files from my computing devices.

I just happened to read that one needs to change a PDF to kindle format.
So Calibre will be the solution

iPad is the better option, even Xiaomi's MiPad at 13k is a better option if you want to read PDF's.
