The Kindle has been Amazons best selling item for the last two years running, and the most wished for, most-gifted, and has more 5-star reviews of any other product on Amazon.

Is Kindle (Wi-Fi) or Kindle 3G (Free 3G + Wi-Fi) right for me?

Kindle (Wi-Fi)

This is a great choice if you already have a high-speed internet connection and wireless router set up in your home and do not need the added convenience of a 3G connection. 3G enables you to download books anytime, anywhere, while on the go. If you do not have Wi-Fi set up in your home, Kindle 3G may be a better option.

Kindle 3G (Free 3G + Wi-Fi)

The easiest option because there is no wireless setup-you are ready to shop, purchase, and read right out of the box. Built-in Free 3G connectivity uses the same wireless signals that cell phones use, but there are no monthly fees or commitments. Amazon pays for Kindle’s 3G wireless connectivity.

The added convenience of 3G enables you to download books anytime, anywhere, while on the go-without having to find a Wi-Fi hotspot connection. With wireless coverage in over 100 countries and territories, Kindle 3G is a great option for travelers.

It is now lighter and thinnerweighing in at just 8.7 Ounces. When reading for long periods of time, weight matters, that’s why Amazon worked hard to make the newest Kindle lighter than ever, only 8.7 ounces, so you can read comfortably for hours with just one hand.

Kindle is lighter than a typical paperback, and thinner than a magazine. Just a third of an inch in profile, Kindle fits perfectly in your hands.

It has an ergonomic design, easy to hold and read, designed with long-form reading in mind. When reading for long periods of time, people naturally shift positions and often like to read with one hand.

Kindle's page-turning buttons are located on both sides, allowing you to read and turn pages from any position. The new soft-touch, textured back is comfortable to hold and never gets hot in your hands.

And, unlike a laptop or tablet never gets hot so you can read comfortably as long as you like.In contrast to most electronic devices it is simple to setup. Kindle is wireless and ready to use right out of the box, no setup, no software to install, no computer required.
