The Kindle Paperwhite E-reader (2016) is retailing on Amazon for US$119.99 (S$167). It doesn’t ship to Singapore directly and hence you have to ship it through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

If you want to get it locally from Singapore, you can get it from SG E-Reader Shop. They are selling the Kindle Paperwhite E-reader (2016) for S$209 which is pretty reasonable. Shipping is free within Singapore and it takes 2 to 3 days before reaching you via Ninja Van.

Microsoft Surface 2 was launched last month and thanks to Ian, the media is able to purchase it at a media discount. The retail price of a Surface 2 is S$618 for 32GB and S$748 for 64GB. I bought the 32GB version.

I bought the Microsoft Surface 2 because I wanted to have a Windows tablet to complete the “family” since I have an Apple iPad Air and Google Nexus 7.
