The Kindle Voyage is back

Look what I found on Amazon Germany:

The Voyage is up for pre-order and will be delivered starting February, 4th.

Guess some of you are extremely happy now, aren't you?

Heck, I was so excited for to see this, I nearly ordered one. And I'd never buy a Kindle. Or would I?

Also available for pre-order in the UK.

I can only imagine that they've come across some old stock. Note it's only the WiFi model available. From 4th February.

"You purchased this item on 24 Apr 2015."

Too bad it’s the WiFi-only model, if it was the cellular one I would have jumped on it!

Why waste your money on 3G? 3G is dying and eventually, there won't be 3G support from the cell providers. If you have a 4G or 5G phone that allows you to tether, then you can tether your Kindle an do it that way.

Still, some might be happy to get a spare. I know I'd be over the moon if some shop found some old stock Aura Ones in their basement

But if you cannot jailbreak it, do you want a spare Kindle that you will need to keep an eye on to keep it charged?

Nah, not me. Those who were mourning the Voyages demise. I am mourning the loss of my Aura One! I didn't take to the Forma. That blasted wedge with the buttons was always in the way.

Because I don't want to tether to my mobile all the time - I prefer my gadgets to have their own cellular connectivity, where possible. That is what I love about the Oasis 3 I got, it has cellular, allowing me to synchronise through WhisperSync on the different Kindles and Kindle apps that I read.

To each their own I guess.

I expect the comment was based on a US bent where some carriers (e.g. Verizon) are shutting down 3G support by end of this year.

Oasis 3 and Paperwhite 4 have LTE support.
