Summary: Between library lending, friend-to-friend lending, social sharing, access to more than 1 million pieces of content, and a full QWERTY keyboard, the Kindle Keyboard 3G brings a lot to the table. While it's not a new device in the strictest sense, the Kindle Keyboard 3G is a sturdy, useful, and enjoyable eReader that we would readily recommend to friends and family who want an E Ink eReader. However, we'd recommend the ad-supported, Wi-Fi-only model for just $99.
Conclusion: The Amazon Kindle is a great quality device that currently offers a unique service. Wirelessly connecting to the bookstore and letting you get your content is certainly a simple approach, with that added advantage of letting you browse content on the website to send to your Kindle, as well as reading on your iPhone or BlackBerry if you want to. For those that want to top-up their reading material on the move with having to hook-up a PC, then the Kindle is a great device.
Pros: Wireless connection of content, feels great in the hand, easy reading experience
Cons: Not all functions available to non-US customers, rudimentary MP3 support, you are restricted to Amazon's content
Excerpt: Obwohl über die deutsche Seite gar nicht erhältlich, wird der E-Book Reader Kindle des Online-Versandhändlers Amazon immer wieder als Musterbeispiel für die neue digitale Art des Lesens herangezogen. Zurecht, denn der Reader, der mittlerweile in der dritten Ausgabe vorliegt, ist immer noch eines der besten Geräte auf dem noch jungen Markt.
