I won't buy this as I don't think it's necessary as you can just get the cover and it'll do the same thing (protection).
That is an extension in Warranty, in case the battery or the Kindle itself suddenly spoil, they'll change for you

Is the original warranty only for 30 days?

I see...
split the shipping.. say if there is 2 kindles, make it one order. get it sent to vpost..
then say u get ur personal stuff, then make it another order.. just make sure they don't packed together.. then u won't kena the $400..
my colleagues and i been doing that all the way :p never kena gst

Just to add, the ads will "refresh" itself everytime you have a wifi connection. I usually switch off wifi most of the time, unless I want another ebook from my dropbox account.
Are we able to install dropbox into kindle paperwhite as well? Through installing custom firmware?

Or were u actually referring to kindle fire in the post above?

I like the new leathercase for the paperwhite ...auto off and on feature with the opening of the case..
I have my reservations of holding onto a leathercase that adds to its weight and makes it more uncomfortable to carry. I rather save that 40 bucks and buy some cheap pouch to carry it around.


Also, can anyone share how much did it cost in total to bring the kindle paperwhite (no ads) to singapore?

Thanks!

I aborted the idea of buying the leathercase.. i ordered a handmade ewok kindle pouch...

Here.. use this to estimate the cost of shipping under the time&cost calculator
