Kindle 2 Offers a Unique Reading Style
Are you a voracious reader spotted in Starbucks with a new book in hand every now and then? Haven’t your friends suggested you ever to buy that sleek, smart looking, techie device called Kindle 2? Read on to know what this amazing e-book reader can do for you.
Read, Read and Read
With Kindle’s capacity to store 1500 books, one can never miss a real book when on the move. One can download the first chapter of a book before buying it. In mere 60 seconds a book can be well downloaded via Whispernet! Wherever one may be globally, it is convenient to wirelessly access 450,000 books available on the Kindle Store. Moreover, one can explore and download 1.8 million free out-of-copyright titles from other websites. To remain updated with the daily news, subscriptions of newspapers and magazines are delivered wirelessly. With just the right size of 8” x 5.3” and a thickness of one third of an inch, Kindle is lighter than a paperback at 10.2 ounce to carry in your pocket and still not feel it!
Reading Made Easier
With the E-Ink 16-level grayscale display, Kindle 2 is easy to read from even for long durations. Infact, the display gets better in sunlight without the screen glaring at you.
What more can you expect from an e-book reader when the User Interface is upgraded to facilitate easy navigation through different sections. The ‘search’ and ‘dictionary’ options, for example, have been streamlined to enable smooth working from within a document.
Amazon has kept aesthetics as the centre of attraction while reworking Kindle. The 5-way-rocker button not only helps in easy traversing through text, but also allows horizontal and vertical navigation.
An interesting ‘Read-to-Me’ feature reads out text aloud. Well, Amazon’s Kindle 2 supports MP3, so no harm in trying it out in place of an iPod for atleast a handful of songs.
To add to all this is the explicit ‘Whispersync’ feature which enables you to continue reading from where you left on one device on to the other device which is Kindle enabled.
Read for Days Without Recharging
The highlight of Kindle 2 is its battery life. The device functions for around a week with wireless and without it for two weeks! The enhanced processor of the Kindle 2 allows you to refresh pages 20% faster. No more frustrating long waiting minutes to jump to new pages.
You better think twice before buying that new paperback from the store. Kindle 2 serves as the icing on the cake by extending the technology to an enthralling reading experience.
