I am a little skeptical of the image clarity I see for ebooks. They are never as good as printed books. But Kindle scores pretty well in this. I must say, the difference it has from a printed book page is quite unnoticeable. It looks like a printed page placed below a glass layer.
Kindle is completely wireless, requiring no cables, PC access, or synchronization. It uses the EVDO technology similar to cell phones, so that you never need to access a hotspot for getting online. This enables you to shop online at the Amazon store for any books or magazines you wish to read with this device. The material you purchase is directly delivered to your Kindle within a minute. Now, nearly 200,000 books, including current best sellers are available for purchase through Kindle.
Another great feature is that you can actually download a sample of the book with the first chapter before actually purchasing it.
The newspapers available include the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, etc. Also, there are magazines like Time, the Atlantic, and Forbes. Users from other countries can subscribe to their local newspapers and magazines as well. In their language.
There are more than 800 of top blogs on business, technology, entertainment, sports, politics, etc., available for subscription on Kindle. This includes, the Huffington Post, TechCrunch, etc.
The power saving of Kindle is remarkable. Without wireless, it can last for a week or more with one time charging of about 2 hours.
Now you need to read any other document through Kindle? Easy. Email the document to Kindle so that you can view it while you are traveling.
