Amazon Kindle Launched
The Amazon Kindle which is a portable reading device with the ability to wirelessly download books, blogs, magazines, and newspapers has been launched.
The Kindle eBook reader can access up to 88,000 books including 100 of the 112 New York Times best sellers.
No WiFi needed, Amazon’s Whispernet service is FREE and based on Sprint’s EVDO:
Amazon pays for Kindle’s wireless connectivity so you will never see a monthly wireless bill for shopping the Kindle Store.The gadget also include:
Newspaper subscriptions cost $5.99 to $14.99 per month and Kindle Magazines cost between $1.25 and $3.49 per month — each is available for a free 2 week trial. Oddly, blogs will cost you $0.99 per month to subscribe. All purchased content is stored as a backup on Amazon’s site. Running down the specs again: internal storage for 200 titles (more via SD expansion), battery that lasts for days (2 hour recharge), 10.3 ounces, built-in dictionary and Wikipedia, and plenty more.
The Amazon Kindle eBook is priced at $399 with free 2 day shipping.*Sponsored Links*
