I would be very grateful for someone knowledgeable to help me with this particular issue.
I have just ordered the Kindle Fire hd 16g registered to a UK account. My situation is that I will be travelling around South America for 6 months, I'm a photographer but I will not be taking a laptop with me (too heavy and expensive for backpacking) to save the photos onto. It would be ideal to be able to upload the photos to the kindle in some way so I can save and share them online.
I have looked into buying an Eye-Fi card to automatically upload via wifi but the problem is that Eye-Fi requires an app- either its own or can use Flickr and other photo sites, and from all the information I have read and gleaned from (confusing) conversations with Amazon I gather that apps will not work outside the UK. You can only download ebooks and use the internet.
The other problem seems to be that the USB is a micro one so you can't connect an external card reader, am I right?
My only other options seem to be to carry multiple sd cards, use internet cafes to download the photos to Flickr and use the kindle to manage and share photos through the Flickr site directly. This is not great because of the risk of loss and damage etc.
Any solutions would be greatly appreciated!
