There are many reasons one may decide why purchasing a Kindle is necessary. It may be because you don’t want to hold a heavy book open for long, or get headaches from continuously reading stuff on the computer, or maybe you want something you could carry in a bag and take anywhere effortlessly, instead of carrying three or four novels in case you’re bored or finished with one.
One might expect to read e-books on the kindle that are already there in the computer by just transferring them to the kindle. But there’s a lot more to it that just that. Content can be downloaded directly from amazon.com or any other website as it can access wireless internet with Sprint broadband coverage.
The best thing is to have all kinds of books, notes, journals any other kind of reading material right in ones palm, because no one knows when you might be in need of what.. There are even options to highlight a particular text, add a note at any intended point, and take the help of the dictionary which is there right at the bottom, when there’s any help needed with unfamiliar words.
One major drawback of reading from the computer is that the screen is backlit and can cause headaches when read on a continuous basis. But the kindle’s screen is not backlit and hence one can read from it just like a book. The cable used to charge it is the same used to connect it to the computer, which is very convenient.
There’s even the text to speech feature in this gadget which makes it really attractive for those who cant stop reading while doing other work. It also has built-in speakers that are really loud and impressive. Its physical features too are appealing as its sleek and compact body makes it easy to hold.
The gadget can be considered a boon to older people who have strong ties to their habit of reading and never get enough of it. It has memory equal to a ton books and can be a great gift to retired people.
Coming to the cons of the kindle, there are quite a few features that customers find disappointing and expect improvisation. There are complaints that the “table of contents” is non-functional, which can be very frustrating as the reader may not be able to jump ahead or back from one chapter to the other.
There is no option of having an SD card inserted in the gadget which makes it limited to the memory it already holds.
The battery is not user-replaceable. This means the kindle has to be sent back to amazon if there’s a need to change the battery. Though the screen can be an advantage when compared to computer screen during the day, it is impossible to read from the kindle during night/in the dark, as the screen uses natural light and is not backlit.
Finally, the price is considered a bit more than what it deserves for a big lot of the customers, as it does not include a case and has a warranty of only 1 year. Extended warranty is available, though for an extra cost.
Ultimately, it is for the customer to decide between the pros and cons, and decide for themselves what to outweigh.
