  • Kindle, or "Well, I'll be dipped in...."

    Recently treated myself to a Kindle 3G and found that its (albeit basic) web browsing allows me not only to come here, but also to run OWA for my Exchange 2010 server and send and manipulate emails.

    And of course, the access is all FREE, and worldwide , courtesy of those nice people at Amazon

    Sorry if this is common knowledge, but I was surprised at how powerful it actually was. Next holiday will be much, much easier on the budget.

    Now to see if She Who Must Be Obeyed can get Facebook and Farmville on it

    I love it, Next time I have someone come in and tell me we have to get them a iPad so they can check there email.... Kindle here they come!!!!!

    Does the OWA only work with 2010? Or is that all youve tested on.

    Sorry, excited, as this will shut some sales people up.

      All I've tested it on, but I doubt if others will be different

        Works on 2003 and 2007. Just keep in mind that browsing over Whispernet is pretty slow - wireless is better.

        Performance on the two new models may be greatly improved

          He he he, this is awesome.

          Not so much that I will use it, but more in a way of shutting sales people up who demand an iPad to check there emails on. Give them a kindle and watch there faces melt... Oh I love being mean to sales people.

          Thanks,

            Agree its slow, clunky, but for overseas, when roaming data costs an arm and a leg, the price is definitely right
