GBM Shortcuts

GBM Shortcut: Amazon Kindle, Part 2



In part 1 of our Amazon Kindle Unboxing, I showed the initial boot, what it was like getting books I had previously purchased, and general first impressions. I’m still very impressed with the Kindle.

In part 2, I demonstrate the carrying case, give a quick look at the lag in typing, remove the back for replacing the battery and inserting an SD card, and also navigate to GBM using the Experimental browser over the included Whispernet / Sprint EVDO. In another video, I’ll try to demonstrate more of the notetaking / keyboarding experience.

Document conversion:

I just converted a word doc and a pdf by emailing them to my email address, which then automatically downloaded to the Kindle.

* didn’t convert the pictures I had pasted in the document
* hyperlinks converted in the word doc and I was able to hyperlink from them to the internet. Hyperlinks did not the pdf document
* the conversion process took less than two minutes

I’ll do a video of it in the coming days
