Pros of the Kindle Wireless Reading Device

The Kindle International, the latest version in its line, is a lot slimmer and better looking than the original Kindle, but similar to the Kindle 2. The are so many advantages to using a Kindle over traditional books, including the fact that you can carry 1,500 books around with you wherever you go - yet the Kindle itself is smaller and lighter than your traditional paperback.

The Kindle is also unique in that it is linked directly to the Kindle Amazon store. From within the Kindle itself, no matter where you are, you can purchase and download new books, as well as magazines, newspapers and blogs, within minutes. This is what helps to set the Kindle apart from its eBook reader rivals.

A great advantage of the newest Kindle model is that its wireless network extends across many countries in the world, making Kindle a real rival to eBook reader models targeted at markets outside of the US.

For those who need to take notes, there is also a built in keyboard alongside the easy-to-use navigation. The font size is adjustable, and you can even have the text read aloud with the Kindle International’s Text-to-Speech feature.

Cons of the Kindle Wireless Reading Device

Some of the main drawbacks of the Kindle Wireless Reading Device are the same as you would find with any eBook reader: it doesn’t quite feel the same as a book, its e-Ink screen means pages don’t turn instantly, and eBooks aren’t much cheaper than buying books in their physical form.

Some drawbacks of this model itself include the fact that the memory can’t be expanded as there is no memory slot. There is also no compatibility with ePub format which is becoming standard for a number of eBooks on loan from libraries, for example.


The Kindle International is much like its earlier versions, so if you live in the US and already own a Kindle 2 it’s not worth an upgrade. However, for those who have never owned an eBook reader before - or live outside of the US - it isn’t too hard to see why the Kindle Wireless Reading Device remains Amazon’s bestselling gadget. It’s sleek, cool and does the job well.
