    And the other downside to iPP, is no trackpad or mouse. And the docking solution is inferior. If you have a Surface Dock at home, you can dock the SB2 or the SG. You can share files between SB2 and SG with a USB stick if no network is available. File sharing between SB2 and iPP will require a VPN connection.

    Did you try Win32 Kindle app for SG?

    Really appreciate the intervention fellas...

    Nope. much smaller and lighter than GB12 or SP6.

    • Lack of trackpad or mouse sucks
    • Not intending to dock it - this is a pure tablet play with an optional keyboard for editing and long email sessions
    • Didn't like Win32 Kindle app at all - dogmeat

    I'm pretty sure you can still download the Kindle uwp. You go to store, library, show all and scroll through the list of all the apps you've ever installed, including some that aren't in the store any more. And click install. It is a little buggy, but still better than the win32 version.

    @dstrauss: my mind boggles. You're way outta my league. Entertaining reading though.

    So I had a chance to have a go with a Surface Go and a Pro 6 today after having not used a Surface device in a while. At first the pen seemed good, but my goodness can is it atrocious when drawing slowly and has odd 'fishhooks' when writing/drawing fast. It thought that was just the reviewers' faults, but clearly not.

    The Pro also didn't seem that much bigger 'in the flesh'.

    I think I'll just pass on a new tablet for now. Perhaps the WOS devices with the 8CX due in Q3 next year will do well. That Qualcomm compared it's processing power to the 835 is a little concerning though.

    Thanks for this awesome tip! I just re-downloaded the Kindle app from the Microsoft store.

    @jjsa1985 , @b52hbuff I just tried to do this and it keeps telling me my email and password for Amazon aren't correct, though I've repeated sign-in again and again and verified my Amazon account password. I originally downloaded the Kindle app in 2013; is it possible the password verification is being managed locally, and it is looking for my 2013 password (I really have no idea what it is)? Unfortunately, it doesn't have a "Forgot my password" option. Any ideas? What did you mean when you said "it might be a little buggy?" Thanks

    I had the same issue when I first tried it but Amazon sent an email with a one time password I needed to use.

    Thanks. Did you just call Amazon cust svce and tell them the problem to get the password? Also, since my original download of the app was in 2013 it would have been on a W8 or W7 computer; does that matter, or does the store self-update? Thanks!
