Amazon Kindle Ebook Reader Review

Review of Amazon Kindle Ebook Reader:

Amazon Kindle measures 4.9 x 7.5 x 0.7 inches and weighs 10.3 ounces. It utilizes electronic paper technology to display in high resolution on its 6-inch display screen. The screen has effortless readability with vibrant text that can be resized with the help of button located on its keyboard. Content navigation is achieved using a select wheel and buttons such as previous’, ‘next’ and ‘back’. The usage of select wheel with ease requires a learning curve.


Another remarkable feature of Amazon Kindle is the non-requirement of a computer for downloading the ebooks of your choice. With your Amazon account, you can easily and immediately download from online bookstore through high speed cellular data network with wireless accessibility. Just as how you browse through Amazon bookstore online to purchase books, the same can be done with Amazon Kindle too. Once you make a purchase, swift download of your ebook to your reader takes place.


Not only books, you can also download magazines, blogs and newspapers by paying fees for monthly subscription. Kindle has the ability to hold hundreds of books with a dictionary built-in for word look ups. You also have the privilege of bookmarking the content to continue reading at a later point of time. MP3 file loading can also be performed.


Take into consideration that due to Kindle’s absence of backlight, night time screen viewing is not possible. Also, the photos will not be in color as the screen is black and white.
