– Because you know the world has no point…Really
I’ve got it.
My new e-book reader. The new Kindle on the block.
And yes, thank you, it’s very nice. Very very VERY nice. Actually I succeeded in spending all the battery in just one single week because I was so damn happy about my new device that I couldn’t stop reading. According to Amazon the battery should last up to one month. I’ve had my Kindle for about a month – and already it has been in the charger four times or more.
Since I bought this funny little device, Amazon’s EBIT-balance has had one hell of a party on my account. ‘Cause I’ve had some mighty fine time with this device – much to my credit card’s regret. Or my bank advisor’s regret. Choose one yourself 😉
In other words: Don’t buy this gadget if you don’t intent to use it.
Oh no. That came out wrong. I mean… Don’t spend money on this device unless you love to r… No, that was not what I was going to say. The point is though – it’s true. If you like to read – you should definetely buy this thing. You won’t get a better bargain for quite some time – that is if you don’t like to read your books on the ever popular iPad. I was offered the opportunity to buy my BF’s (used) iPad. But since the iPad just reminds me of (yet another) computer, I was not tempted at all. Spending 8 hours before a computer screen at work is quite enough, especially if you add the hours in front of the computer at home playing WoW or just blogging or surfing or… whatever.
Let’s throw in some basic facts:
The Kindle is only for Amazon’s customers – since it’s hooked up with your normal Amazon account. That is part of the reason why things are working so smooth on the Kindle: Amazon wants your money! So ofc – they make it easy peasy japaneseay to download and store books. You don’t even see the money running away from your bank deposit… You just click on “Buy” – and wham bam thank you mam! – the book or magazine is yours. The (small) Kindle comes with a 6″ screen (which is 1 inch bigger than the Sony E-reader and other) and you can buy the coolest leather cover EVER for it (ofc in 8 different colours) with built-in LED lamp which is quite cool whenever the light has gone missing. This little feature does not comes cheap – but its worth every one of the 59 dollar the price tag fleece your back. And doing it the Amazon way you are sure to get it within 3 or 4 working days. Nice treat 😉
The Kindle also comes with free wi-fi and 3G network built-in (the 189 dollar model does that is) – so there’s no fussy business putting in SIM-cards or whatever as in the iPad 3G version. Amazon has paid one hell of a lump in every country worth mentioning to give its customers free acces to the internet on the go – all you gotta do is… nothing. Neat business. All in all the “we-take-care-of-you-so-you-don’t-have-to-do-anything”-attitude quite simply is what you would expect from the evergrowing Amazon.
I could continue on with several specs and tests and everything else you can read on Amazon’s webpage… instead I will let you discover it for yourselves. This post is for expressing my exitement about the best gadget I’ve ever invested in.
It’s not a computer.
It’s not a book.
It simply is – a Kindle.
