    When I opened my Kindle it was on the screen. I don't own a Smartphone but this is intriguing. With my Kindle Fire anywhere I am I get all my emails home and work and have no problem connecting to the internet. If I did want this I would wait for the reviews. Thanks for sharing Jack Bauer. Cool
