Or I don't want to use my cellphone as a gps and I don't want to be locked down plus the fire does not have a accelerometer

Here is some lovely background music for you while you make up your mind.

I say go with the PW if you can. It's going to be the better choice. It's U.S only though. Currently the NK4 is International.

Custom Fonts

Kindle uses hand-built, custom fonts and font-hinting to make words and letters more crisp, clear, and natural-looking. Font hints are instructions, written as code, that control points on a font character's line, improving legibility at small font sizes where few pixels are available. Hinting is a mix of aesthetic judgments and complicated technical strategies. We've designed our proprietary font-hinting to optimize specifically for the special characteristics of electronic ink.

Free shipping to you; but if you send back non-defective items, Amazon makes you pay for the return shipping charges. I know, because I got burned on this earlier this year when they told me one thing and did another. That's when I cancelled my Prime membership.

They used to do what was basically a try it for 30 days and if you don't like it return it free deal on Kindles, have they stopped that?

Do you have anybody you could dump (er, generously donate) it to?
That way you could get the money back and get the PW when it goes global.
Or, you could return the whole kit and use a reshipper to get a KPW.
(Ooops, sorry; that puts you back the decision spiral, doesn't it?)

I see. Yeah, if I take the PW I will need a forwarder, makes it even more expensive, in the end a refund might be the simplest solution. I don't dislike the K4 in anyway, but I did get a tad excited when seeing the PW.

God, that was annoying. I consider myself decently educated but if I had to stand in a pulpet trying to answer questions with that ringing in my ears, I would get zero correct answers.

No idea. I was returning a non-Kindle Christmas gift.

Keep the K4 as backup.

I still have my K3 which is backup to my K4.
