Yes, the Charlotte Observer did have some content issues on their 1st day. My issue today contains a lot more content including sports. While the Kindle edition will not take the place of my regular subscription it will be wonderful when I'm traveling. I'm very glad to have this option.
Some of the other reviews worried me, but I gave the Charlotte Observer a try. It appears to contain everything one would find in the print edition. So, needless to say, I was happy with the content and it appears that some of the other reviews don't reflect the current state of the Kindle edition.
Shortly after I subscribed while on vacation I had to go online with my laptop to the Observer to get an article about a statement a SC Seantor made. It was defintely left out of the Kindle edition. I dropped my subscription but bought one issue to read and obituary while I was out of town recently, only to find there are no obituraies in the Kindle edition.
Be careful if you buy this. I was very excited to convert to the electronic subscription, but the Kindle version is stripped down extensively from the print edition. The Sports section is not included in the Kindle version, nor does it seem to include any article filed with a late deadline. Given the reduction in original content in the print edition over the last few years, what you're left with is a bunch of stories from the AP wire and a smattering of local news stories. Save your money until McClatchey gets its act together.
I am disapointed with the N&O Kindle edition. I want a FULL print edition, adds, obits, classifieds and all. I want to brouse the paper, read the comics and advice columns. I would pay the regular subscription rate to get a full edition . . . I will not be paying for this striped down version.
I loved the paper at first but then the sports section stopped being included and this is an issue with me for no other reason than its the biggest section of the kindle version. So I went back and read the reviews more in detail and decided to cancal my subscription because if I pay for something I should be able to get all of it.
