DHD & Kindle App, will I even need a Kindle?

    I like to read ebooks. I do it on my laptop, which is not too nice for hours on end.

    So, now I have the DHD on the way and there's a kindle app that looks nice - so my question is, will I really even still need a kindle?

    A little bird told me that my Mother in Law wants to get me one for Christmas, but should I tell her to save her money?

    IMO, there are a lot of differences between an eBook reader and an eBook app. A kindle will be much kinder to the eyes than any backlit display. I couldn't use a phone/laptop for long reading sessions like I can a book/kindle. Plus, the battery life on the kindle can be measured in weeks, not hours.

    I've been using my SGS with the Kindle app for a few months and it works fine. I expect when I replace it with a DHD the same will be true.

    There is a huge issue though, the battery life. Absolutely kills it. I'm planning to get a real Kindle for this reason.

    OK thanks!

    Yeah the battery is a big deal, true.

    I've tried reading on the 'old' Desire but there's no comparison to the 'real' Kindle - battery, bleeding eyes, etc. - it's cool when you need to look something up when you've forgotten Kindle, but otherwise it's quite useless to me.
