      As the e-book reader war heats up with the launch of the Barnes & Noble Nook, Sony E-Reader series, and of course the Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab, the original e-book reader, the Amazon Kindle, continues to define the e-book segment of the market like none of the above devices can.

      One of the reasons for this is that Amazon has kept their focus squarely on reading and enjoying books and has not been distracted by the hoopla surrounding other devices in the market. Sure, you can get another device with a color screen, a hard drive, a web browser, games, music, apps and tons of other cool features but then you’d be missing out on one key feature - a dedicated ebook reader.


      Yes, you can read ebooks on your cellphone, iPhone, your iPad, your netbook or even your iPod, but its the overall experience of reading that counts, if you take reading seriously that is.

      For the casual reader who can afford it, by all means, go for the Apple iPad or even the upcoming color Nook from Barnes and Noble, which by the way uses an LCD screen instead of E-Ink. Those devices will give you more bang for your buck since reading isn’t the sole reason you’re in the market for such a device. But if you love books, and are looking for a portable, lightweight device that can carry a digital library of up to 35 000 ebooks then the Amazon Kindle is for ...


      • you.

        The Kindle 3 WiFi now ships in a cool graphite casing instead of the standard white color and is ultra-thin, lightweight, and a pleasure to hold, even for long periods of time. The brilliant E-Ink screen is even better, with a higher contrast ratio and faster refresh time. You can read anywhere, even outdoors in direct sunlight, just like a real paper book. The screen is amazing. The new Kindle now offers support for Adobe pdf files and does a faily admirable job of handling them, though there is still much room for improvement. Other features, which fall under the experimental tab, includes a web browser, built on WebKit, and a text-to-speech offering which will read the book out to you in either a

        male or female voice, via the built in speaker or through a set of headphones. Also supported is MP3 music playback, so you;ll be able to enjoy your favourite tunes while reading, although the 4GB built in memory isnt going to stretch very far. These experimental features are a welcome addition but need to be refined further to be usable as there are many glitches still present. I’m sure they’ll get it right on the next try though.

        At just $139, the WiFi Kindle 3 is now affordable and accessible to anyone, including those living outside the US. Shipping and Taxes are pre-paid at checkout and your device will be delivered to your door in about 1 week.

        There is no reason not to get this brilliant device.
