Kindle hangs

Amazon's new Kindle

Two days in and my Kindle has hung.  It locked up when reading the Daily Telegraph.  No button presses worked except the power switch. However although it switched off, it wouldn’t switch back on.  A quick call to Amazon’s Kindle helpline and a helpful chap called Antonio supplied the information, that the hard reset of holding the power switch on for 20 seconds would fix the problem. It did.

Reading the newspaper on a Kindle isn’t a substitute for the real thing but it’s half the price of even a subscription deal and doesn’t rely on a delivery person to be on time. This morning I had read the key news on the Kindle by 08:30 a good half hour before the paper was delivered.
