5.0 out of 5 stars I love it! (and beware of some obsolete comments) October 25, 2011
(updated on 7/28/2012) I have been a subscriber to the paper edition of the FT for a few years now, and I have been reading it on kindle for more than a year. I love it! So far I can see (almost) only advantages:

1. it is much less expensive. I used to have a discounted academic US subscription, but now apparently it is no longer available. The regular subscription is now ~350/year, while the kindle edition is 15/month = 180/year. Obviously much better.

2. I have the smallish Kindle keyboard 3G, but reading and navigation are just great. In particular, it is really easy to navigate. You just press the 5-way button once to reach the compact table of content. Just right or left-press it to move to the next-previous article. It is actually way easier that using the newspaper with all those big pages, especially when you are in a constricted space like a plane of a crowded subway.

3. The graphs and photos ARE there. Some users complained about their absence, but that was perhaps in earlier editions. I am not sure ALL of them are on the kindle editions, but I haven't missed any I care about so far.

4. The web links also appear to work, in contrast to what other comments say. They are not ideal (you have to open the experimental browser to follow the link, obviously) but on the other hand you certainly could not follow a web link from the paper edition, could you?

5. You can store past issues without the need of any physical space. Keep in mind that old issues are, by default, deleted from your kindle after 10 days or so.

6. You do not need to get out of the house at 7AM at sub-freezing temperatures to pick up your copy! Last night I could not sleep and I downloaded the FT around 4AM, awesome!

5.0 out of 5 stars FT now on Kindle August 21, 2008
I have had a Kindle since they came out, and love it as a reading platform. Until now the only subscription I've had is the NY Times, but as a European in the US I am delighted to see the FT here as an option - got it the second day it was available. I realize there are other non-US papers also here, but the FT beats them all - great news journalism plus financial news and insights - if you are going to read only one paper, then the FT is a good choice. I always turn to Lex first for a take on some of the top stories of the day.

The pricing is closer to the print, at a current discount available at Ft.com. I think the automagic convenience of having the paper appear on the Kindle is worth the extra $10. Plus you don't have to carry it to the cur on recycling day, and can think about all those trees you saved.

So - go get the two week trial and check it out!

(Disclosure: a close family member works at the FT).

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL!!!! Too expensive though. August 20, 2008
One of my favorite things about the kindle is the money that I save by buying books and magazine/newspapers cheaper than getting them in print form. For example, the NY Times is normally $250 a year for paper (discounted) and only $168 for the Kindle version.

HOWEVER, the FT paper edition is only $103 a year for paper while the Kindle version costs $113. Not a big difference, but why wouldn't I get the paper delivered to my house every morning for less money?

1.0 out of 5 stars Content deficient of graphs & photos March 13, 2009
The Kindle 2 is not ready for prime time because their content providers are not providing the bell & whistles that makes reading a pleasure. In a specific case the Financial Times does not provide the all important graphs & charts they are most famous for nor do they provide the photos of their authors/columnists or any other photos they usually provide.

This makes the reading a laugh and a bore. When Amazon finally gets the content right with their content providers, then we have a deal. In the mean time I will be returning my Kindle for a full refund and waiting for Apple or another vendor to give me a real electronic reading pleasure, with full detail. And I am not asking for color content at this time.

Beware, you will not only be adjusting to a tactile change of reading pleasure you will be missing essential content that you previously enjoyed. The former you can soon adjust to, the latter you will always be missing. Do not be fooled by the reduced price. Demand more. The Kindle content has to be improved before this product is ready for prime time.

I subscribed to this daily paper because of good feedback and I was not disappointed. The articles are very good and it's refreshing to have a more international perspective than you typically get in a publication like the Wall Street Journal.

Compared to other Kindle newspapers & magazines that I've previewed on my Kindle, the formatting of the Financial Times is flawless. It's extremely easy to navigate not only from article to article, but also from section to section. This makes it very easy to preview and then skip an article if you're not interested.

The only reason that I cancelled my free 2-week trial was because of the cost. Although I enjoyed the content, this is not information that I am required to read for my job, and therefore, I cannot justify spending $10 a month to have access to this newspaper on my Kindle 2. For the same $10, I much prefer to download a new Kindle 2 book once a month. If you need financial articles for your job, or if you are more passionate about financial matters, then this is a well-written newspaper and well worth the monthly investment.
