So what is so great about the new Kindle 3G from Amazon? Nothing except you can take an entire personal public library of up to 3,500 books with you in a size about the space of a business letter envelope. Add to that you personal mp3 collection, and all your personal documents stored as PDF files and you’re set to go. All of this can be pass word protected for security as well. One of the coolest features about the new Kindle 3G WiFi is the ability to connect to the Internet. Browse Amazon for the latest titles for immediate download, or check out your favorite web site.. No WiFi connection? No sweat. The new 3G technology allows you to connect in 100 countries of the world by utilizing cell phone technology.
Kindle now allows you to store and listen to all your favorite music with its built in mp3 player. The new Kindle 3G WiFi Wireless Reading Device will even play background music as you read.
Too tired to read? Kindle will read to you in either a male or a female voice at your choosing.
Kindle also has loads of accessories available to spice things up for you. Choose a decorative cover to protect your Kindle. Or, give it a brand new “artsy” look with a new skin. Attachable reading lights are available so that you can read Kindle anywhere. Get a pair of high quality headphones to listen to your mp3 collection in private.
Stay ahead of the competition with a subscription to the Wall Street Journal or Time magazine, or any one of dozens of newspapers and magazines. The latest news is often available in Kindle form before the print version comes out.
Now for a couple of minor issues:
The Internet connectivity, though amazingly good is still not what you would get with your laptop computer. The screen on the Kindle 3G WiFi Reading Device is smaller of course and you may need to zoom certain things to see them clearly. Also, the flash function is not available, so playing Internet videos is out of the question at this point.
PDF files are a little small for my eyes. However, you can change the screen orientation to view them landscape which helps. You can also select your screen font size which helps even more. Just a minor irritation in my book considering all the other stuff you get. Definitely worth checking out!
