Hey Simulcasters – quick question… have you used the Amazon Kindle app on an Android tablet that’s not running Honeycomb/ICS?
We’re looking at getting the Lenovo Thinkpad A1, mainly as a compromise (I want to get a Kindle, the wife wants a tablet that isn’t a slow piece of crap… we’d gotten her mum the Thinkpad for Christmas, and so far so good). I’m just wondering whether it blows up to full screen – i.e. more lines per page – or whether it just has the same number of lines as on the mobile phone app, just in much bigger text?
