Will it make a big difference vs a LCD mobile phone? if so, which would you recommend? I have a budget of around $200 which only gives me the option between the base model 4GB or the Paperwhite 8GB/32GB. I can see that the paper-white has waterproofing and more storage, but does it have anything else to make it worth it?. Also if anyone here has the base model, could you let me know if you have accidentally spilled some water on it and whether the kindle survived or not?
note : I would be buying from JB-HiFi or Officeworks
TL;DR : Anyone who went from a mobile phone/tablet to a Kindle, was it worth it? and which would you recommend to buy? budget $200 rough
