So you guys actually like the browsing experience on the Kindle?  :eek: I prefer my laptop or blackberry for that.  ;D

I've only tried a couple of times. It was to much trouble for me, but it is nice knowing that you can.

I use the browser for quick checks of email. I don't have a blackberry and I can normally check email quicker on the K2 than it takes to power up the laptop. Trying to do regular "browsing" is just too slow on it though.

I don't browse on mine.  I did while on the train to NJ on Christmas and couldn't get into gmail, even though I could log into google.  Also tried reading the NY Times online with it, but became impatient with it and bought a copy of the kindle edition.  I have K1.  Does anyone who has had both K1 and K2 know if the K2 has easier browsing capability?

I hate it, the thing is wayyyy too slow. I will keep using my iphone for that, thank you.

Once you get used to its flaws, intricacies, limitations and tricks to use to navigate webpages, the Kindle is a pretty capable web browser for text intensive sites.  I use mine to read blogs a lot and had to use it several times for quick and panicked runs to sparksnotes to study up on a story I forgot to read for a quiz that day.  It's definitely clunky, but not really all that slow considering.  I'm happy with what it can do and will use it before using my phone (Verizon Voyager) because the phone is just way too slow.
