Starting Up the KindleOK time to start up the Kindle! You don't have to pre-charge it. You can plug it in and start using it immediately while it charges :) Always a nice thing!!
OK first, there's a sticky film on the Kindle telling you what to do :) So you plug it in and then remove that film.
It's starting up now. Look at the lower right. It's a REALLY cool progress bar along the right hand side that literally gets shiny reflective!! I am just in awe of this, that it can go from flat matte to shiny mirror-like immediately. It's a two square wide track, so you sometimes get "spinning squares" and such for progress.
Wait! The main screen is alive!
Here we go - the welcome message! In fact it knows it is me, Lisa and it says "Welcome Lisa" in the welcome letter! Because I bought it from Amazon with my Amazon account it knew who I was! You can change that if you want, of course - if you buy this as a gift for someone else. But I love that it comes customized.
The text is VERY easy to read - sharp crisp letters on a matte background, just as if you're reading paper. I realize there's a flash glare in this photo but in real life there is no glare at all.
