The Raspberry pi, although a beautiful project and quite an electronic feat, it can be a bit limiting as a main production machine, but I convinced myself I could use it as my main traveling computer.

At the least it has become a proof of concept that could be used for other similar projects. So here is how you can create your very own KindleBerry Pi!
