I subscribed to it during a long holiday in south east asia and it gives you all the news and commentary you need to be updated and entertained.

As a long-time reader of the IHT I will not dwell on the excellent contents except to say that this paper belies the idea that trusted, authoritative, balanced sources of information are not worth paying for, and refer for this topic to reviews on the hardcopy edition.
I carefully checked, article by article, the paper and electronic versions. What is missing from the Kindle are most pictures, the comics, the games/puzzle sections and all ads. All the articles are in, unabridged. It gets faithfully delivered here in Geneva six days a week, at around 4 am ( there when you wake up). Unlike the hardcopies, delivery is not delayed by local holidays, "follows" you in about any country your Kindle may travel to and saves you serious money. What is particularly convenient on a Kindle is the possibility to clip citations (or even entire articles) and looking up words in a dictionary; you may even have the paper read aloud to you. The IHT can conveniently be navigated by sections, or you can just hop section by section through it all and read only those you want.
When buying a Kindle I had this IHT subscription in mind and have never regretted this since.
The slight drawback is that the IHT will not grant you web-access to back issues. However, if you really want this you can simply keep all your electronic issues on your Kindle or on a PC for later retrieval and clipping.

I love the fact that this newspaper is published at 1:00 am Hong Kong time so it's ready to be read at breakfast in Australia. Great format, appropriate images, and well worth it for the generous Business Asia section. Apart from all that, I really love the Saturday edition with its emphasis on the arts. Congratulations to the New York Times for maintaining its impeccable standards with this thoroughly relevant Asian Pacific edition of the International Herald Tribune.

The IHT is a must-read for me on the train to work each morning. The content of the IHT varies somewhat from the New York Times (although their websites are co-branded), and there's some really excellent reporting that only appears in the IHT. I find it a great, concise briefing with a good mix of news and information from around the region and the rest of the world. It's a keeper.

The focus on Asia is not there. I think the "Asia" in the title refers to when it is published to your Kindle, before 0500 Hong Kong time. Otherwise, the print version I can get in Thailand is much more focused on the region. I should have kept my Washington Post subscription, almost the same articles and cheaper. Tried the free trial and canceled. Will keep looking for a good SE Asia Kindle paper.

I wish the Bangkok Post would come out with a Kindle version as it is a superior paper to the NYT Asia Ed. In Thailand I have never heard of anyone reading this paper. If nothing else is avalilable it may keep you happy but the regular NYT is not that different.

having spent the past 5 months in SE Asia, I thought this would be a good way to keep up with news from there after returning to the US. However, in two weeks there has been not a single word about the Philippines which is in the midst of a historic national election. Other than one story on Indonesia, the only news from SE Asia has been about the Red Shirts in Thailand.
In addition, wireless delivery is not reliable. there should be a delivery every day except Sunday. But the first week it skipped from Saturday to Tuesday, and the second week it skipped from Friday to Monday. So instead of 6 issues a week, I am only getting 5. It is really not worth the money.

Aside from minimal pictures often absent from articles where pictures are inherent, this is a delivery I look forward to daily. Except Sundays, which is normal but the last three weeks the Saturday issue has also been absent. Why?

The problem with the international New York Times on my paperwhite is not the content but the layout
It is impossible to read the paper in any coherent manner
I have the New York Times on my iPad and it's perfect

I try at least twice a month to read this paper as it offers insights and stories that are not normally available in domestic North American newspapers. Always find it worth the read.
