    New Amazon Kindle wireless reading device

    If you’re anything like me you’ve probably always dismissed the idea of the Amazon Kindle before looking into it in any real detail. I have, however, looked into it in a bit more detail recently and am very impressed by the spec! The following might just sway you too:

    • It’s got a high-contrast super-bright screen that’s as easy to read in bright sunlight as paper so can be used almost anywhere
    • It has up-to a months battery life so you’re not tied to a plug socket
    • It has Wi-Fi so you can download books direct. The Kindle 3G (3G + Wi-Fi) can also download books and access the Kindle store for free over 3G–with no monthly bills or annual contracts
    • It holds up-to 3,500 books in its memory
    • Its wireless so doesn’t require any computer connection although can be connected using USB if required
    • And the best bit? It only costs £109 for the standard Wi-Fi version and only £149 for the Wi-Fi + 3G version!
