Amazon Kindle Review

Several months ago I wrote a review on Amazon's Kindle. The Kindle is the most popular e-book reader available today - and Amazon wants to keep it that way.

This week they cut the price to $259, (it was $399 in 2007). Amazon says that the increased number of Kindles being sold has made it possible to cut the price.

With the six-inch display and sixteen colors, it beats Sony's PRS-600 ($359) which has a six-inch display but only eight colors.

Other features of the Kindle include the ability to store up to 1500 books on the reader (Sony's PR-600 can only store about 350 without a memory card). The Kindle offers text-to-speech which Sony has not implemented (yet).

Sony advertises a battery life of 7,500 pages; Kindle up to four days.

While they both have built-in dictionaries, the Kindle has a keyboard for typing rather than a touch-screen.

Both will allow you to download new books wirelessly, but only Kindle offers e-mail conversion of DOC, HTML, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP and PDF files.

With the Kindle, you don't have to worry about monthly bills for the wireless access. Amazon pays for the wireless connection fee.

With Christmas coming, why not consider giving someone an e-book reader?

I've only compared the two e-book readers that I felt were the best out there. You can see and compare a much larger list here: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/E-book_Reader_Matrix
