Buy Cheap Kindle: Amazon's Original Wireless Reading Device (1st generation)

Introducing Kindle™ Three years ago, we set out to design and build an entirely new class of device—a convenient, portable reading device with the ability to wirelessly download books, blogs, magazines, and newspapers. The result is Amazon Kindle. We designed Kindle to provide an exceptional reading experience. Thanks to electronic paper, a revolutionary new display technology, you’ll find reading Kindle’s screen is as sharp and natural as reading ink on paper—and nothing like the strain and glare of a computer screen. Kindle is also easy on the fingertips. It never becomes hot, and is designed for ambidextrous use so both “lefties” and “righties” can read comfortably at any angle for long periods of time. We wanted Kindle to be completely mobile and simple to use for everyone, so we made it wireless. No PC and no syncing needed. Using the same 3G network as advanced cell phones, we deliver your content using our own wireless delivery system, Amazon Whispernet. Unlike WiFi, you’ll never need to locate a hotspot. There are no confusing service plans, yearly contracts, or monthly wireless bills—we take care of the hassles so you can just read. With Whispernet, you can be anywhere, think of a book, and get it in one minute. Similarly, your content automatically comes to you, wherever you are. Newspaper subscriptions are delivered wirelessly each morning. Most magazines arrive before they hit newsstands. Haven’t read the book for tomorrow night’s book club? Get it in a minute. Finished your book in the airport? Download the sequel while you board the plane. Whether you’re in the mood for something serious or hilarious, lighthearted or studious, Kindle delivers your spontaneous reading choices on demand. We’re very proud to introduce Kindle and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. - The Amazon Kindle Team

 "Kindle is Da Bomb!" 2009-10-02
By Julie Taylor (Woodworth, LA USA)
Overall, I love my Kindle. It is extremely convenient to keep with me all the time. Book purchases are very easy and fast, and there is a large selection to choose from. Visually, reading is easy on the Kindle, just like paper and ink.

Drawbacks? Minor. I'd like to be able to sort of fast-forward through a book by chapters instead of page by page. If there is a way to do this, I haven't discovered it yet.

Money well spent? In my opinion, absolutely. Of course, I'm one of those bookworms that have a book on them at all times, so it makes sense to purchase a Kindle. I'm a happy camper!

 "Purchased a Kindle 1 Refurbished - I so wanted to be happy." 2009-10-02
By R. J. Munoz (Houston, TX USA)
I was so excited about the refurbished Kindle 1, that I spent an entire day roaming through the selection of Kindle books available for download. The price was just right at $149 (refurb price), I added an additional amount to the shipping so that I could receive it the next day. From that point I spent a day at work telling my co-workers all about the item. I was exceedingly excited and could not wait to return home, as I had been watching the shipping updates and I knew it was there. When I got home I felt like a kid at at Christmas. I opened the box, eagerly, it was packaged just like a new item. Every advertised accessory was there and I was certain it was new. I followed the instructions and plugged the power in, and proceeded on my adventure, reading the introductory information included on the Kindle. Because I had been so eager the night before, I had "purchased" a free copy of Dracula. Upon learning how to download the copy into my Kindle and accomplishing the task. I spent a few minutes reading the book. Then I proceeded to the online store and downloaded a sample copy of a book I was interested in. That was when the trouble began, and never stopped. From that point on the Kindle froze, if not within seconds after having been rebooted, then a minute or so. If memory serves correctly it froze 15 times in less than 20 minutes. In one of the functional moments I was able to initiate a software update. With fingers crossed and burning hope that this would fix things, I waited for the update to complete and for the Kindle to reboot. Voila, I had a web browser now and it seemed fine, then it really crashed. I was able to remove the Sample book and then rebooted again, but this never helped either. I had been watching the Kindle for a year or so now, wishing that I could afford this item. It was all for not, and I am out of pocket on the shipping charges, they do not reimburse those charges. I can not describe the disappointment, it is my own fault for being so eager to have this in my hands, that my disappointment is so huge. I have never bought an electronic item from Amazon, fearing these very circumstances. I am not certain what to do at this point. I am not a wealthy individual, and this was a huge cut into my budget, but I had dreams of sitting with this item over coffee, and on rainy days inside. The disappointment is such that I may retract my use of Amazon from this point on. If an item had been purchased like this at a local store, I could walk right in tomorrow, refund in hand or replacement in hand. This appears as if it is going to take several weeks to correct.

That is all.

Well I had a accident dropped my original Kindle ordered Nov 2007. Stupid Stupid didnt pay close enough attention and I carry it everywhere. So this is the replacement, not the newer versions ( I have nothing against them ) but just like my first one. It came in just like they said it would and its is new. Cant live without it. Thanks

 "Why does this not work in South America" 2009-09-28
By Maureen A. Leclairedentler
I bought this specifically so my husband could download books in english while in South America. But it appears not to download while he is there. Has anyone else had this problem. Rather defeats the purpose of travelling with such a nice, small "book".
