Does anyone use an Amazon Kindle in Poland? According to the service maps the 3G and internet should work fine there. But I am looking for real life info not claims from Amazon.

Just got one. Worked fine in the States but first attempts to use it near Katowice unsuccessful. The thing can’t see any network. Will do some driving around, maybe I am just in some sort of a blind spot.

Sony is much better than Kindle

Thanks cailczuk your post was helpful.

Shush...the Sony doesn't have free 3g internet, has slower refresh, lesser battery, and many less books to choose from. So I am pretty sure it is NOT better...but thanks for the reply that has nothing to do with my question of whether the KINDLE internet works in Poland.

Amazon is known to steal from the customers what they had sold.
Kindle is an Orwellian device.

Does Amazon Kindle3 3G web browser connect in Poland?

I found an old outdated thread about the previous generation Kindle but does anybody have any recent experience of using a 3G-enabled model and connecting in Poland, specifically Warsaw? If yes can you say whether it is any good for general browsing, aside from downloading simply from Amazon. And could you also say which network it works on, thx

Kindle is not designed for Browsing, the feature is what they call "experimental". It is very limited. The MP3 player is also not stereo. Buy it as an e-reader and you will be happy. The others features are great if you have no alternative.
