Does anyone have the new Kindle 4 (the silvery one with the virtual keyboard), and if so, does it display adverts?
The reason I ask is that I need another Kindle, and as they no longer sell the one I really want (the Wifi-only Kindle 3 keyboard) it's either the more expensive one with 3G (which I have absolutely no use for), or the newer non-KB one. So I went into John Lewis to check it out, and it started displaying adverts. They were the width of the screen, about 1/2" tall, and along the bottom of the screen.
I know there are US ad-supported models, but I wasn't aware of that in the UK.
So .... is that now a feature of the UK one? If so, I'll buy a Kobo or something. because I have no interest at all in one that displays adverts.
It might have been something to do with John Lewis's display model rather than a feature of retail product, but they couldn't give me a categoric answer on that, one way or the other.
