I have succumbed to the dark side and got myself an iPad. That’s almost like a week ago and the iPad seemed to be a better option compare to an iPhone 4.
I initially wanted to get the 32G model but was told that it’s out of stock and the only choice I have is either the 16G or the 64G and the price is about RM1k difference. After much contemplation, I went with the entry model.
So aside of preparing to go to Taiwan, I have also been occupied with the iPad. Well, it’s like an iPhone, just that it’s almost 4 times bigger and more easier to use. Still thinking if I should bring it along to Taiwan.
I also ordered the Kindle 3 early last month as the price have plummet down to USD139 and it’s quite affordable e-reader compare to the ones being sold here locally. I thought that it would not make it for my Taiwan trip as the didn’t ship it out on the day it was launch (Aug 27th) but am glad that it got shipped out on the 2nd of Sep.
I use vPostasia.com for shipping as the Kindle don’t ship direct to Malaysia so that takes a little bit of time but it’s worth every single cents. The shipping from Amazon to the vPost address at US is free, and I only need to pay SGD15 for shipping it to Malaysia, that’s quite a bargain.
The moment I open the box, I’m actually quite surprise that the Kindle is smaller that I imagined it to be. It’s as big as a paperback novel and actually half the size of the iPad and weigh less than 500 gram.
I’ve just purchased my 1st book via the Kindle and have been reading it since. You know there are sometimes that I regretted buying a piece of technology that I won’t be using it often but I think with both the iPad and Kindle, I don’t think I will ever leave them behind.
