It’s Noble. 🙂
I’d buy one if it worked for sure on the iPhone 3GS. All those rechargeable battery packs are priced through the roof!
Kindle here, and probably getting a large-format WiFi one for work, depending on upcoming tablet developments from Apple and OLED screens.
I’ve got a kindle. It’s my favored way to read text-heavy books. It’s not useful for things with lots of diagrams or formatted text (e.g. programming books or something like Making Things Talk).
When new novels come out I’ll buy a hard cover to collect and then the kindle version to actually read because it’s actually a better experience on the kindle.
I’m waiting for the Apple tablet. Seems Amazon is scared to death of it. Amazon not only pre-announced an SDK for apps but changed their fees for e-book publishers the week before the expected apple tablet announcement.
I’ve got a nook.
I have a kindle.
Is it that the mintyboost doesn’t work with the 3GS or that using it with the 3GS has the same requirements as the 3G – the more expensive lithium AAs? I can’t charge my 3G with regular batteries in the minty but it works fine with the lithiums.
It’s pricey but the minty is an emergency measure for me, not a regular thing.
I’ve got a nook as well (and absolutely love it). Glad to hear my MintyBoost will power my nook!
Astak EZReader Pocket Pro here.
I’ve got a Kindle 2. I agree with Eric at #4. For text heavy books, fiction, most non-fiction, it actually beats paper. As much as I love books, I miss my Kindle when reading a physical book. I’m probably done buying physical fiction books.
But it stinks for anything with visuals. How-To books, PDF’s and reference books are miserable on it. The screen is too small for a good illustration (letter-sized PDF’s are unreadably small), photos are gray smudges, and paging is slow on e-paper so it’s hard to flip through it.
I have the standard format Kindle 2. I love it, but agree that it isn’t terrific for books with illustrations.
I have a Kindle 2 and use the Mintyboost with it every now and then (though the Kindle holds a charge for quite a long time). I also have a iPhone 3G, and the Mintyboost works just fine charging it with Sanyo Eneloop rechargeables.
Cool. Now if only the nook allowed users to go to a particular page in a book, we’d be alright…
I have a Kindle 2. Have been thinking of getting a MintyBoost as a backup charger for my G1, but still haven’t gotten around to it!
