New Kindle?

Although this may really be a Helproom matter, it is more just a chat among friends!

My fourteen month old Kindle is becoming a bit temperamental (battery charging problems,).

The cost of a repair is not really a sensible spend, so do I go for a new Kindle, on spend my Christmas money on a tablet of similar size which may not be quite as functional as an e-book reader, but would offer additional facilities?

No a lot older than Ipods :0)

Did check the voltage and current output printed on it before trying to use.

Won't charge the sat nav either which will charge off a standard USB port, think it just it little underpowered for modern equipment:0(

You lot are no damned help at all!

Here am I, looking for an excuse to buy a new tablet, and all you can do is advise me to exchange the Kindle.

Luckily my wife has more sense and has told me I ought to get a tablet!

Maybe I can help - in times of stress, keep taking the tablet(s)....

of course you will have to buy one first ;-)

Are you going to ask us to recommend which one to get? :O
