The Anatomy of Amazons Kindle Reader

By: James Kara Murat

The newest baby of Amazon, Kindle Reader, is lighting up the minds of millions of people all over the world-or, at least, for those who have got hold of their newest innovation immediately.

Kindle is basically like your own library, only that you can bring it with you anywhere you go. You can even tuck it in your bag. It boasts of over 90,000r reading materials, such as books, magazines, and blogs. Any update from the latter two will be delivered right at your own reader. But what else do you need to know about Kindle?

1. It uses ink. This is practically no joke. Kindle is traditional in the sense that it tries to capture the readability and scan ability of physical newspapers. What sets the difference, though, is that the ink is converted to something electronic. Besides giving you the feeling that you're actually reading a real paper, it also allows you to read it even under natural sunlight. There's no need for you to suffer under the glare o computer screens.

2. It connects you. Kindle uses a new technology called Whispernet. It gives you access to the Internet without the hassle of cable wires. You don't even have to look for any WiFi hotspot. This also allows you to surf through the Web and read any interesting material from Wikipedia. Also, you can order your books immediately. They will also be delivered to you instantly. You should learn to take advantage of this as there's no extra cost attach to it.

3. It's ergonomic. The design of Kindle has received a number of harsh criticisms, but for the book lover, it spells bliss. Because a reader has a tendency to change position while reading, Kindle has been designed vertical for long form reading. Also, navigation buttons, which are located at each side, means that both the right-handed and left-handed can skim through the pages of the book with relative ease and comfort.

4. It has a QWERTY keyboard. Because anybody who has his own PC or at least used a computer knows the QWERTY keyboard really well, there's not much training you need to do when it comes to searching for and buying your favorite book, newspaper, or magazine from the Internet.

5. It lasts longer. It has one of the most long-lasting batteries, even longer than those found in cell phones and laptops. If you're going to make use of your wireless connection, you may have to recharge your reader at least every other day. Otherwise, you can have one full week of uninterrupted reading. You also don't have to wait that long too before the battery gets fully charged. Within two hours, you can go back to your routine, which is reading.

6. It has useful accessories. There's no such thing as trivial accessory if you speak about Kindle. You can utilize the USB cable when you're going to transfer files from your Kindle to your PC and vice versa. The book cover, meanwhile, offers protection to your ebook reader, making sure that it doesn't get any scratch or dirty.
