    Don't be silly. Everyone knows that people in the boonies are illiterate anyway.

    According to the maps I could find, I am almost 100 miles from the closest EVDO coverage area. So, does that mean I could still get books anywhere, it would just take waaaaay more than a minute? Or does that mean I would have to hook the Kindle to my computer to download? It's all just curiosity on my part anyway; I have an Ebookwise that I'm pretty satisfied with, and $400 is just a bit much for my budget.

    But, looking at the coverage areas, I have to wonder that none of the gushing reviews mentioned this. One of the big selling points appears to be ‘get books instantly, anywhere.' I realize that many, if not most, people in the U.S. live in urban areas, but just looking at Sprint's list, if you don't live in or next to a city of at least 100,000, you're just out of luck. I wonder how many customers that eliminates.

    You would have to hook the Kindle up to the computer to install books on the Kindle.

    Alaska looks like it’s SOL.
