To be sure, the Kindle eBook reader leaves little doubt by now that a reading revolution is in the making. It has evidently become a current vogue in the white-collared circles. Everyone who has any reason at all to carry one will. For certain groups even, it’s an attire to impress or status to flaunt. Whether it’s for the pomp or purpose, or both, this gadget is hot.
You don’t have to be an avid reader to buy Kindle electronic book reader but if you are, great! That’s what it’s all about to start with. Basically the Kindle is a super sheet of electronic paper encased in a hi-tech frame which is equipped with state-of-the-art smartness and features. In much the same way that the mobile phone is cellular, the Kindle is a cellular eBook reader connected to full telecom amenities from anywhere in the country.
The original Kindle wasn’t much in appearance to many and if you didn’t like the jarring look, well, Amazon listened. Check out the sleek and trim Kindle 2, complete with superb ergonomics this time around for good measure. Now, there’s really some resemblance to what people like to refer it as – the iPod of books. Now, let not the good looks overshadow its functional prowess.
The Kindle’may be eye-catching to the admiring onlookers but to the readers themselves, it actually disappears elegantly into the author’s world, a feature Amazon greatly prides their superstar product on. The top design objective was to make the reader ‘get lost in the reading, not the technology’. Yet, it would be unjust to simply bypass its technology marvel without a mention.
The main distinction of the Kindle electronic book reader from its peers, or rivals if you may, lies in its Whispernet – a wireless service by which contents are transacted and also where Whispersync operates for smart cross-device synchronization. The connectivity is through 3G network and is included when you buy Kindle eBook reader so there’s no bill on your part and unlike WiFi, you never have to hunt for a hotspot.
Some say that at the end of the day, the Kindle 2 is just a book but the great thing about this book is that it can be any book you wish anytime, anywhere, out of about 275,000 of them plus magazines and newspapers. Amazon publicly stated that it’s their aim to avail any book that’s ever printed to all Kindles in the country under 60 seconds. That’s quite an audacious goal but they have been bold before, and succeeded.
