Feedback on Kindle
I have just joined this forum and had a brief look on threads.
I am looking to buy e-booker reader and need a bit of advice. I like Kindle but I do not know it supports your own PDFs. I mean, I am under the impression Kindle will only support those e-books which are purchased from Amazon.com. Is that true?
I have got lots of PDF books in my laptop, some of them are scanned PDF converted from hard copies. Does Kindle support your own personal files?
I have mostly noticed people reading plain text, I have not idea how good Kindle are at viewing graphics e.g. diagrams, flow charts, domain models or tables etc.
Please feel free to suggest any other reader than Kindle.

Device: kindle touch
i own a kindle touch for around a year now.
i use books sideloaded from anywhere i choose - even made up by me.
With calibre i can convert them to mobi.
If it's a pdf i can read it directly but i'd rather user calibre to convert to a mobi.
for the graphics, in my experience, i found the screen too small to be of any use.
you can perhaps suceed if you have a very good sight.

Non-DRM books in any of the formats the Kindle supports (mobi, pdf, HTML, text, a few others, IIRC) can be read from any source, and most other non-DRMed formats can be easily converted to one of the supported formats by tools like Calibre.
Reading DRMed content from other stores besides Amazon would require stripping the DRM first and then converting.
While the Kindle can read PDFs, I don't think I'd enjoy reading many PDFs on my Kindle.
For text based PDFs, I think the Sony readers probably offer the best experience, though I really don't think any current 6-inch eink reader is going to be that great for PDF, especially graphically-rich ones.
