Seems bad value as it's low resolution and can only render old Mobi. The older Kindle Keyboard takes later Firmware, so can do KF8. The DXG was a DX with simply a later screen tech, so not enough RAM. Also a slow CPU for PDFs. The Kobo 6.8" H2O and 7" libra do same size PDFs better.

It's only of value if you want larger than normal size text and you have bright ambient lighting. Also most HTTPS sites don't work on the experimental browser

I'm baffled too.

And I'll add to the list of cons "No WiFi/3G only but 3G is going away soon"

I'd buy it assuming it was free with free shipping and then I'd come on MR and sell it.

Also, it's not that uncommon to see an Oasis 2 or an Oasis 3 on ebay for a price lower than this.

Not talking about a Slot. Do like they do to Kobo Remove the SDCard & put in a Bigger one. On my Clara I changed it from 8 gig to 32 gig

BTW on these older Kindles You can Change the Batteries.

I don't think there's been a Kindle with non-soldered built-in storage.

You might be able to desolder the flash storage and solder on a bigger one, but what a mess.
