Thread: Kindle: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device

  1. Kindle: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device

    So far I haven't found a electronic book device that I'd even want to consider. However this one does have promise, I'll be on the lookout for what they do with future upgrades.

    The Kindle

    * Revolutionary electronic-paper display provides a sharp, high-resolution screen that looks and reads like real paper.

    * Simple to use: no computer, no cables, no syncing.

    * Wireless connectivity enables you to shop the Kindle Store directly from your Kindle—whether you’re in the back of a taxi, at the airport, or in bed.

    * Buy a book and it is auto-delivered wirelessly in less than one minute.

    * More than 100,000 books available, including more than 90 of 112 current New York Times® Best Sellers.

    * New York Times® Best Sellers and New Releases $9.99, unless marked otherwise.

    * Free book samples. Download and read first chapters for free before you decide to buy.

    * Top U.S. newspapers including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post; top magazines including TIME, Atlantic Monthly, and Forbes—all auto-delivered wirelessly.

    * Top international newspapers from France, Germany, and Ireland; Le Monde, Frankfurter Allgemeine, and The Irish Times—all auto-delivered wirelessly.

    * More than 250 top blogs from the worlds of business, technology, sports, entertainment, and politics, including BoingBoing, Slashdot, TechCrunch, ESPN's Bill Simmons, The Onion, Michelle Malkin, and The Huffington Post—all updated wirelessly throughout the day.

    * Never get caught without a dictionary. Kindle includes The New Oxford American Dictionary with over 250,000 entries and definitions, so you can seamlessly look up the meanings of words without interrupting your reading.

    * Also includes free built-in access to the world's most exhaustive and up-to-date encyclopedia—

    * Lighter and thinner than a typical paperback; weighs only 10.3 ounces.

    * Holds over 200 titles.

    * Long battery life. Leave wireless on and recharge approximately every other day. Turn wireless off and read for a week or more before recharging. Fully recharges in 2 hours.

    * Unlike WiFi, Kindle utilizes the same high-speed data network (EVDO) as advanced cell phones—so you never have to locate a hotspot.

    * No monthly wireless bills, service plans, or commitments—we take care of the wireless delivery so you can simply click, buy, and read.

    * Includes free wireless access to the planet's most exhaustive and up-to-date encyclopedia—

    * Email your Word documents and pictures (.JPG, .GIF, .BMP, .PNG) to Kindle for easy on-the-go viewing.

  2. I think the Sony Reader is really sexy.

    If it was extremely cheaper I'd get one.

    I'd use one if I had it for free somehow, but I can't see buying one, at least until the form factor is a lot closer to an actual book.

  4. I like the sony one better, but with Amazon it is super easy to buy books. They are just too expensive (because of the screen).

  5. Kindle isn't too far off from the "actual book" size. Just a lot thinner.

  9. Yeah, once these get to the sub $200 level I may start to consider buying one.
