Kindle Review

The Kindle 9.7" Stores 3,500 Books!

Kindle is a wireless reading device, an electronic book reader. It is slim and sleek and is capable of storing 3,500 electronic books.

There are many electronic book reading devices on the market but the Kindle outshines them all. It stores the largest selection of reading material including the New York Times, Best Sellers, New Releases, and The Classics; plus Amazon customers can download some 1.8 million books from other out-of-copyright websites.

Created by Amazon, The Kindle can store any book, newspaper magazine comic or blog you want to read via Amazon's online store, built-in free wireless "Whispernet" data network. You don't need to plug into a PC; it has a built-in keyboard for notes and navigation; a fast processor speed up device with 2GB of internal memory. It displays image files, plays MP3 and AAC audio; is compatible with Windows and Mac machines, and the new Text-to-Speech feature allows you to have text read aloud. Kindle has a long battery life, so you can enjoy wireless reading on a single charge for up to 1 week with wireless on. It's absolutely fabulous!

Carry it anywhere and everywhere you go it is extremely portable. You can annotate and highlight pages of your books or you can read your favorite newspaper every day whilst commuting.

The Kindle comes in two sizes, 6" and 9.7". They hold 1,500 and 3,500 book respectively. Both display books under 60 seconds, have 3G wireless, and global coverage, native PDF support, text to speech and rotating display.
