i have a kindle 2 which i love. except when i am trying to
still read and plug in to charge at the same time. the plug
location is in the wrong spot to be able to hold the device
and still read it. why not up on top???

You are just now complaining about it??

I would not want it on top. I think that would get in the way more. I think most portable devices coming out now have plugins on the bottom.

Why not rotate the screen? I don't often read while charging, but when I do I rotate 90º.

You can also rotate your screen 180 degrees so the plug is at the top.

I agree with you Mastercard. I have a K2 which has the charger on the top and a K3/KK which has the charger on the bottom. It is easier to read while charging with the cable coming out of the top. I was just thinking about it as I am charging and reading on my K3 right now. I always forget about flipping the screen rotation. Off to do that now.

You are also brilliant!

All your ideas are great - or you can also do what I did: buy another K3 (or newer) so you can read from one while charging another one. Expensive? Yes, but I wanted the 3G capability.
