The Amazon Kindle

Photo from Amazon.

The Amazon Kindle is the e-reader from Amazon. With the Kindle, you can have a whole library of books with you where ever you travel! Amazon offers free 3G internet connection (3G models only) which can be used to browse the internet with their new BETA browser feature, download new books in 60 seconds or less, and other great features. Amazon library of books includes 810,000 books, including 107 of 111 New York Times Best Sellers, and 1.8 million free out-of-copyright books!

What else can you ask? The battery will last 1 month (with wireless off, and 10 days (with wireless on). Kindle DX battery life may be shorter. There is no glare when you read in the sun unlike some other e-readers.

The screen is about 6" (9.7 on the Kindle DX). The dimensions are 7.5" x 4.8" x 0.335" (10.4" x 7.2" x 0.38" on the Kindle DX). The Kindle can hold around 3500 books itself. Some books can even be literally read to you via the Kindle. It can also double as an MP3 player. In fact, you can lend your friends your books for up to 4 weeks (I think). :)

Did you know that you can also play games on the Amazon Kindle? It is amazing. At first I thought an ebook reader like this couldn't have the technology inside to process complicated algorithms like this until a few games for the showed up on my recommendations! There are games like chess, sudoku, tic-tac-toe, and a lot of other games for the Amazon Kindle! Here are some games!

To be honest, I wasn't that convinced to go buy one, but now, I really want one! I didn't know about games and free web browsing until now! Update your Twitter on the go! :) Check you Facebook. What else? The 3G is free! Get your Amazon Kindle now! It doesn't cost a lot. Although the does Amazon Kindle lack a book light, but that can easily be fix by getting a case along with your Kindle.

If you are planning on getting a Kindle, I would personally suggest you get this Kindle, because there is both Wifi and 3G. The Kindle DX does not have Wifi or computer support.
