The Pink Bear and I love our Kindle!

We think that it is one of the most wonderful inventions we know!

We love getting our books wirelessly by Whispernet, delivered directly to our Kindle, so that we can begin reading immediately!

Right now we are reading Van Gogh: The Life by Stephen Naifeh and Gregory White Smith.

It is a nearly 1000 page book...another reason we love our Kindle, for how could a little pink bear like this hold a 1000 page book?

at the beach. I must admit that I love the amazon kindle ;-) Even on this small island I had connection to the amazon store via 3G/whispernet and could download books. Another advantage is the weight. I never had such a "light" hand luggage.

I like the fact the packaging is plain and generic. I feel this is a good mood, considering the product is only marketed online, and thus does not require much in terms of selling itself through the packaging as if it was sitting on a shelf in the shops. This must help to keep costs down, especially as you as the consumer know what product you're buying, so it shouldn't matter what's on the box provided it is clearly labelled on the outside as to what it is. I like the uniform packaging for the Kindle and the Amazon Kindle case. Very smart. Again, the generic design of the packaging between the two related products must keep costs down.

 

The "Certified Frustration Free Packaging" emblem on the side of the boxes did cause a bit of amusement, but after taking the Kindle out of the box, I can see it has reason to carry the label. There are no awkward flaps to negotiate with or seals – simply a "pull to open" style means of breaking a physical seal by ripping part of the packaging. The pull tab strip is perforated on the inside so that it rips perfectly without breaking halfway through the process.

 

One thing I loved about the Kindle is the distinct lack of packaging materials used. The packaging itself is designed for you to directly access the product, with no polystyrene or polypropylene trays or wraps. The power supply (a USB cable and plug adapter, very similar to the Apple iPod/iPhone power adapters) has a simply card casing and with the User Guide loaded onto the Kindle with first synchronisation to Whispernet, there is thus no need for a paper instruction manual to be included in the box; there is a simple and folded quick start guide made of card in the box to get you started if you're not that tech savvy. The sheets of low-tack adhesive-backed acetate on the front and back of the Kindle device are the only bits of plastic inside the whole box – all other packaging, including the quick start guide, is completely recyclable. I feel that the way the packaging was designed was that if felt you didn't want to keep it (for resale value or whatever) was that it should be just as easy to recycle the materials instead of finding a way to dispose of them.

New technologies have brought many changes to our society. One of the most interesting, at least to an avid reader, is the advent of digital books, or ebooks. These are simply digital versions of a book and with advances in the technology used to read them, electronic book reader, you can use one device to browse, pick out, pay for, download, and read your book, all in just a matter of minutes.

 

Amazon, one of the biggest online retailers in the world, was the company that first started the widespread use of digital books. They have developed a book reader, they call it a Kindle, that is one of several different electronic readers on the market today.

 

The Kindle enables the user to pick out their books from Amazon and have them downloaded and ready to read in a few minutes. The Kindle comes equipped with Whispernet, which is a network that runs off of the Sprint network.

 

This means that anyone who is using a Kindle, can access the internet anywhere there is wireless service. Which would be virtually anywhere in the country.

 

You don't need to sign up for Sprint, or any other carrier for that matter, it comes as a standard feature on your kindle.

 

When shopping for a book reader you do have to keep in mind that Amazons Kindle isn't the only reader on the market. There are many other brands to choose from and you should look over the different models to find the one that has the best features for you and your lifestyle.

 

Most readers will cost between $250 and $399. The readers are usually around 10 ounces and about 7.5"x 5.3". As you can see from the dimensions, they are small and lightweight which makes it very convenient.

 

Readers have an average screen size of about 6" diagonal.

 

The amount of titles available does differ between one company and another. The number of titles you can choose from can range from 60,000 on the low side, all the way up to over 150,000 on the high side. That's a lot of books, all right in the palm of your hand, your own virtual library.

 

Readers can hold between 300 to over 1,000 book titles and some models have the capacity to add external memory of up to 16GB. That's a lot of books!

 

Many, but not all, book readers have wireless capabilities that will not only allow you to download books, but also check out blogs, online newspapers, and popular magazines.

 

You can buy a Kindle right on Amazon, you may also be able to find other brands on Amazon as well. These units are in high demand so if you're planning on buying one as a gift or for an upcoming vacation, you shouldn't wait until the last minute or you might find that they are out of stock.

 

Using an electronic book reader is a great way to enjoy modern technology while enjoying a good book. What a great combination. hit-estate.info/electronic-book-reader/

My first book on the Amazon Kindle? Grimms Fairy Tales for my daughter, specifically I read her part of Rumplestiltskin this evening.

 

Since the Amazon Kindle's screen is not backlit, I use a Mighty Bright LED book light. Works great!

A page from The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott, as displayed on an Amazon Kindle 2 e-book reader.

 

I loooove Kindle. Amazon's customer service is pretty good, they have a phone number you can call and permit returns of e-books, a generous policy that is seen rarely among sellers of digital content. Kindle also works for manga, too.

 

Yes, most books in the Kindle Store use DRM, and I am well aware that Amazon can remotely delete books, spies on your device usage and bans customers for excessive returns crippling their Kindle in the process. I still recommend it without hesitation. I know that I can trust Amazon with my credit card number and they're not as creepy as Facebook.

 

The latest Kindle is amazingly thin, light, offers free web browsing, and most importantly, the Kindle Store now has over 700,000 books, more than anyone else.

Introducing Kindle™

 

Three years ago, we set out to design and build an entirely new class of device—a convenient, portable reading device with the ability to wirelessly download books, blogs, magazines, and newspapers. The result is Amazon Kindle.

 

We designed Kindle to provide an exceptional reading experience. Thanks to electronic paper, a revolutionary new display technology, reading Kindle's screen is as sharp and natural as reading ink on paper—and nothing like the strain and glare of a computer screen. Kindle is also easy on the fingertips. It never becomes hot and is designed for ambidextrous use so both "lefties" and "righties" can read comfortably at any angle for long periods of time.

 

We wanted Kindle to be completely mobile and simple to use for everyone, so we made it wireless. No PC and no syncing needed. Using the same 3G network as advanced cell phones, we deliver your content using our own wireless delivery system, Amazon Whispernet. Unlike WiFi, you'll never need to locate a hotspot. There are no confusing service plans, yearly contracts, or monthly wireless bills—we take care of the hassles so you can just read.

 

With Whispernet, you can be almost anywhere, think of a book, and get it in one minute. Similarly, your content automatically comes to you. Newspaper subscriptions are delivered wirelessly each morning. Most magazines arrive before they hit newsstands. Haven't read the book for tomorrow night's book club? Get it in a minute. Finished your book in the airport? Download the sequel while you board the plane. Whether you're in the mood for something serious or hilarious, lighthearted or studious, Kindle delivers your spontaneous reading choices on demand.

 

And because we know you can't judge a book by its cover, Kindle lets you download and read the beginning of books for free. This way, you can try it out—if you like it, simply buy and download with 1-Click, right from your Kindle, and continue reading. Want to try a newspaper as well? All newspaper subscriptions start with a risk-free two-week trial.

 

Kindle's paperback size and expandable memory let you travel light with your library. With the freedom to download what you want, when you want, we hope you'll never again find yourself stuck without a great read.

 

We're very proud to introduce Amazon Kindle and we hope you like it as much as we do.

 

Kindle: Go Paperless with Amazon's Original Wireless Reading Device (1st generation)

p.s. while looking at this, i thought it was on the protective sticker screen, and was amazed when the graphics didn't peel away. "Ah, so this is eInk....." i thought to myself.

[201/365]

It's a toss-up. On one hand, i'm really intrigued by the technology and the device's usability. On the other, PRICE!? My goodness.

 

It was only by chance that i have one of these. So a big thanks to my dad for gifting his extra Kindle 2 to me. So i'm going to make the best out of it while ducking and dodging the price tags that are attached to seemingly everything.

 

I know it's a convenience charge, but you (Amazon) expect me to pay $1.99/mo to read Gizmodo blog feeds? No matter how paltry a fee, i'm reading it free of charge on every other wireless device i have.

Like i said, i'll be carrying this, instead of my laptop or books, with me when i want to go out and read something at a coffee shop. I'm excited to see how much reading i can get done with it.

Loving it already to be honest. It's easy to use, fast to get books and it looks really sexy. The whispernet thing just makes me epically happy, and I can put my own pdfs on with a simple c&p. LOVE!

...I only get two bars of the slow speed coverage where I live. Have to go on over to the Tricities to really rock out with the Whispernet on my K2i.

 

I didn't order the Int'l version; it's just what they shipped me. My assumption is that they ran out of the US-only models and subbed the Int'l ones.

 

I'd have killer Whispernet coverage if they'd shipped me the Sprint version!

catching up on kindle periodicals i downloaded from computer last night - so brick and mortar feel! i wish a wcdma-based whispernet will be available soon.

Playing (and falling in love) with the Amazon Kindle.

Ein Klick auf "Buy" (kaufen) und schon wird das gewünschte Buch gekauft und heruntergeladen. Natürlich steht es dann auch in etwaigen Kindle Apps für iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC oder auch Android sofort zum Herunterladen zur Verfügung! Amazon nennt das "Whispernet" und "Whispersync".

Tour guides provided these so you hear them even from a distance

This is a typical page from a book I'm reading, in this case Spirit House. The dots on the bottom give a rough indication of where you are in the book, in this case about half way through. The title and author are at the top.

 

Location numbers rather than page numbers are used since the font size can be adjusted to suit you at any particular time, obviously affecting what would be a page number. It's easy to bookmark, highlight, take clipping and notes, etc. which will be saved for you. The Kindle automatically keeps up with your place in the book so that you return to where you left off. And if that's not enough, you can also search the Kindle for a word or phrase and look up a term in the included dictionary - or even on wikipedia if you have "WhisperNet" turned on. (The wireless connection requires a bit of power, and thus depletes the battery more rapidly, a good reason to turn it off when not required.)

Reading the news of the world on my Amazon Kindle while scarfing down lunch at the local Chinese buffet.

arjandj: Zo die is er snel!

 

quarkness: @rubenbos nee, wifi. Moet genoeg zijn dacht ik

 

quarkness: @arjandj ja man, ongelooflijk! Dinsdagavond besteld. Ging naar de Postma er voor pakketje van Conrad. Die was er dan weer niet

 

rubenbos: Ok, ja kan prima! Leest relaxed. Heb zelf 3G om ook op reis nieuwe boeken en kranten te kunnen kopen. Geen abonnement, geen idee wie je provider is en dekking in bijna alle landen. Best bizar!

 

quarkness: @rubenbos serieus? Wow, dacht dat whispernet alleen in vs was. Misschien moest ik toch eens wat lezen voordat ik de creditcard trek

 

rubenbos: Ik heb een Kindle uit de US (international) maar heb er bij aflevering in Nederland gelijk een boek en krant mee gekocht in de auto. Heb overal 3G, maar daarmee wel alleen gratis toegang tot Kindle Store. Browsen en mail ontvangen kost wel geld.

Enhanced Reading

 

Lose Yourself in Your Reading

Kindle DX Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 9.7

 

The most elegant feature of a physical book is that it disappears while you're reading. Immersed in the author's world and ideas, you don't notice a book's glue, the stitching, or ink. Our top design objective was to make Kindle disappear---just like a physical book---so you can get lost in your reading, not the technology.

 

Paper-Like Screen with New E Ink Pearl Display for 50% Improved Contrast

 

Utilizing the latest generation E Ink Pearl technology, Kindle DX provides a crisp black-and-white 9.7-inch diagonal screen with the same appearance and readability of printed paper. Sharp and natural with no glare or backlight, reading on Kindle DX is nothing like reading from a computer screen. Those who see it for the first time always do a double-take. The screen works using ink, just like books and newspapers, but displays the ink particles electronically. And unlike a laptop or smart phone, Kindle DX never gets warm so you can comfortably read as long as you like.

 

Read in Sunlight With No Glare

 

Kindle DX's screen reflects light like ordinary paper and uses no backlighting, eliminating the glare associated with other electronic displays. As a result, Kindle DX can be read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room. In addition, the improved contrast makes it easier to read in low light conditions.

 

Adjustable Text Size

 

Kindle DX has eight adjustable font sizes to suit your reading preference. You can increase the text size of your favorite book or periodical with the push of a button. If your eyes tire, simply increase the font size and continue reading comfortably. Now every book in your library can be large print.

 

Sharp Display of Images and Photos

 

Kindle DX's high-resolution and high-contrast screen boasts 16 shades of gray and 50% improved contrast, for the sharpest text and images.

 

Kindle DX Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 9.7

 

Full Image Zoom

 

Whether you prefer reading in portrait or landscape mode, images and photos display crisply on Kindle DX and can be zoomed to the full size of the 9.7" screen.

 

Enhanced Newspaper Reading Experience

 

With Kindle DX's large display, reading newspapers is more enjoyable than ever. The 5-way controller lets you quickly flip between articles, making it fast and easy to browse and read the morning paper. Want to remember the article you just read? Clip and save entire articles for later reading with a single click.

 

Bookmarks and Annotations

 

By using the QWERTY keyboard, you can add annotations to text, just like you might write in the margins of a book. And because it is digital, you can edit, delete, and export your notes. Using the 5-way controller, you can highlight and clip key passages and bookmark pages for future use. You'll never need to bookmark your last place in the book, because Kindle DX remembers for you and always opens to the last page you read.

 

Personal Document Service Via Whispernet

 

Kindle DX makes it easy to take your personal documents with you, eliminating the need to print. Each Kindle has a unique and customizable e-mail address. You can set your unique email address on your Manage Your Kindle page. This allows you and your approved contacts to send Word, PDF documents, and pictures to your Kindle via Whispernet for a small fee---see details. Kindle supports wireless delivery of unprotected Microsoft Word (DOC, DOCX), PDF, HTML, TXT, RTF, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, PRC and MOBI files. Some complex PDF and DOCX files might not format correctly on your Kindle.

 

You can transfer personal documents to your Kindle via USB for free at any time. Learn more

 

Built-in Dictionary With Instant Lookup

 

Never get caught without a dictionary. Kindle DX includes The New Oxford American Dictionary with over 250,000 entries and definitions, so you can seamlessly look up the definitions of words without interrupting your reading. Come across a word you don't know? Simply move the cursor to it and the definition will automatically display at the bottom of the screen. Never fear a sesquipedalian word again--simply look it up and keep reading.

 

Kindle DX Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 9.7

 

Wireless Access to Wikipedia

 

Kindle DX also includes free built-in access to the world's most exhaustive and up-to-date encyclopedia--Wikipedia.org. With Kindle DX in hand, looking up people, places, events and more has never been easier. It gives whole new meaning to the phrase walking encyclopedia.

 

Search

 

Kindle DX's keyboard makes it easy to search within a book, across your library, in the Kindle Store, or even the Web. To use the Search feature, simply type in a word or phrase you're looking for, and Kindle finds every instance in your book or across your Kindle library. Looking for the first reference of a character in your book? Simply type in the name and search. You can extend your search to the Kindle Store to find related titles you may be interested in. Explore even further by searching Wikipedia and the Web. Web access is not currently available for some customers outside the U.S. Check your country

With our free Kindle Reading Apps for your PC, iPhone, Mac, iPad, Android phone, and Blackberry, you can read Kindle books even if you don't have your Kindle with you. Our Whispersync technology synchronizes your Kindle library and last page read across your devices, so you can read a few pages on your phone or computer and pick up right where you left off when you return to your Kindle.

With Kindle DX, you are able to download and enjoy more than 60,000 audio titles from Audible.com, including bestselling audiobooks, radio programs, audio newspapers and magazines. Due to their file size, audiobooks are downloaded to your PC over your existing Internet connection and then transferred to Kindle DX using the included USB 2.0 cable.

These are the bookmarks which were pre-stored on the Kindle for use with the browser. I found that after I managed to navigate to Google's Mobile Apps menu page and saved the address as a new bookmark, that it replaced the original Google bookmark. It gave me a chance to say no, but I was happy to say yes!
