It looks like I am going to give my girlfriend my Galaxy Tab 10.1 because she will probably use it a lot more. I would rather keep an ultrabook in my bag, and use a Kindle for books. I currently use my Galaxy Tab for Kindle.
I have a little quandry on which Kindle to get. A lot of my reading will likely be technical books from O'Reilly or Wrox and various magazines.
I like the new Kindle Paperwhite 3G. Great size, great screen, and the Whispersync feature. But I am unsure if I would be happier with the small Kindle Fire.
I guess it really comes down to how important a color screen is for me. I don't need full blown Android.
To the Kindle users here....what are your experiences with reading nerdbooks and magazines on various Kindle devices?
IMO the Fire is better for nerdbooks magazines - or any tablet with a color display - compared to something with e-ink. I have the third gen Kindle keyboard w/Wifi, and while it is fan-fucking-tastic for reading books/novels, it doesn't really have the same ease of flipping back and forth between sections that you get with a "regular" tablet.
While that's not a big deal if you're just reading a novel, for tech books I know I tend to flip like crazy back and forth.
IMO, plain old paper nerdbooks are still the way to go. Every textbook/study guide/reference guide that I have that I use a lot is completely full of dogears, highlighter and pen remarks from me as I go through it. On the other hand, being able to text search on them is a huge bonus for the digital version.
