Apparently the Kindle makes for an outstanding travel companion, as i always suspected.
Having just spent last weekend abroad i was once again astounded how indispensable the iPhone was – i used it so much that the battery barely lasted a day, where it normally lasts three days during regular use. I didn’t bring the iPad though, it just felt too bulky and expendable. It might have been convenient on the plane, but other than that i had no need for it. Maybe i’ll pick up a Kindle as a travel companion, with its size, weight and battery runtime it’s just a much more portable device than the iPad.
