This morning, a new app was released for the K2 and more recent Kindles that fills that need, the Kindle Notepad. Sadly, apps don't work on the K1, so I'm out of luck.
However, I know a couple of people with more current Kindles read this blog, so I urge them to check out the videos and help page and see if it's something they would use. I tortured myself by watching the main video and really was impressed. I'm also impressed by the announcement on the Kindle forum in which the creator answers questions and responds to people's reactions (including mine).
Now I have two reasons to get a new Kindle, but I'm going to hold out for as long as possible with my trusty K1. Now that I have used a Kindle, there is no doubt that I will be getting another one when this one dies. I just hope my K1 ("H-Box") lasts until color eInk is affordable... I'm hoping that the next Kindle I get has color.
But this is the first time I definitely want a new Kindle for a specific item, so the makers of Kindle Notepad have managed to really impress me.
Did I mention that Kindle Notepad is only $1? I would have already bought it if I had a Kindle that could use it. Heck, I'm tempted to waste a little of my remaining Amazon credit to get it just for the future. That's how impressed I am with it.
