Amazon Kindle Keyboard Review
Has an excellent screen, killer battery life and makes buying eBooks ridiculously easy.
In the Box
Amazon takes a minimalist approach to packaging the Kindle: as well as the device, all that you get is:
- USB/power cable
- 2 prong power adapter
No case, screen cleaner or other cables are included.
The Kindle is a small, sleek device that fits well into the hand, with the thumb falling naturally onto the page control buttons on the side of the body. It is easy to hold in one hand or to prop on the knee while reading, and you don't need two hands to flip pages: the thumb can easily reach the page control buttons on the side of the body. These page control buttons are present on both sides of the body: a plus for the left-handed or those with limited mobility in the fingers.
At just over 0.3 inches thick, the Kindle is thin enough to fit into a coat pocket or small bag. It is light, too, at 8.5 oz for the WiFi model and 8.7 for the 3G connected one.
