Only slightly off topic I guess.

The proliferation of documentation makes it hard to keep the right stuff at hand, as well as any docs I would like read.

Printing and stapling/binding just doesn't work well anymore.

Has anyone had good success with using the Kindle for Oracle docs and other technical documentation?

The Kindle does have some limitations, such as a 200 file limit.

That shouldn't be a problem, as most of us probably only need a few documents
out of the documentation set. Though I would like them for 9i, 10gR2 and 11gR2.

An iPad or other tablet would work, but Kindle has the following benefits:

  • better battery life
  • easier to read, especially outdoors
  • smaller form factor makes it easier to tote
  • and finally, a lot less $$$ than a tablet computer.
