Why deal with the bookstore when you can have a book delivered to you wirelessly in less than 60 seconds? And why carry around a weighty hardcover book when you can tote around a device that weighs mere ounces, less than a paperback--and can hold hundreds and hundreds of novels? The Kindle uses 3G wireless and global wireless coverage to deliver the goods in no time, and its 2GB internal memory lets you store up to 1500 books. Then you can shop the Kindle Store whenever you're up for reading something new!
The 6" diagonal E Ink electronic paper display looks and turns just like a real page and is super-easy to use and read. The built-in PDF reader allows you to display PDFs without losing the formatting of the original file--send PDFs directly to your Kindle, or drag and drop from your computer. It's that easy. In fact, you can send all sorts of files right to your Kindle e-mail address, from Word docs to JPEG photos to HTML files. And then you can view it all on the Kindle. Whether you're on a train, on a plane, on the beach, or at home in your favorite chair, the Kindle redefines reading.
The included accessory kit features a convenient case and stand, four screen protectors to safeguard your Kindle, an LED clip light for nighttime reading, and USB chargers for both home and the car, so your Kindle is always powered up and ready to read.
Wireless capability and use of public wireless locations or hot spots may require a network connection, additional accessories, and a service connection fee.
Access to and use of the Internet may require payment of a separate fee to an Internet Service Provider, DSL line, or more.
