Kindle 2: Now international

// October 9th, 2009 // 2 Comments » // Personal

Kindle is Amazon’s really amazing ebook reader. It was only available in the US due to it’s whispernet technology, which enables it to download your books from the amazon store using the 3G network. Yeah, 3G not wifi. They just announced on their website that it is now international, but for some reason Canada is not on the list of countries. Kindle books are a lot cheaper, for example my text book this semester costs 100 bucks, but on the kindle store it’s only 45.

I was recently looking for an alternative a few weeks ago and sony prs 600 seemed like the best choice. It has a touch screen, so no need for all the extra buttons. It also has native pdf support, and SD card expansion slots.
