New Kindle Paperwhite

Have just brought a kindle paperwhite from Dick Smith, do I register in English (united Kingdom) or English (united States)? , thanks

Unless it has a nz option, leave it at us.

US has different spelling to us (realize, color, etc). The UK shares our spelling for the most part. So use UK English if there's no NZ or Aus option.

You should have got one of the new kindle voyages. They have a far better screen and are the eventual paperwhite replacement.

They're good but a lot more expensive. Also I've never looked at my Paperwhite and thought "I wish this display was sharper". It looks just as good as text on a page IMO.

If you buy directly from amazon they aren't too badly priced. You do really notice the screen quality difference when you compare it to the paperwhite, and also has the page turn buttons, so you don't get fingerprints on the screen when reading if you don't want them.
