If you are in search on an e-reader device, then you should definitely consider getting an Amazon Kindle. This piece of technology is leading the market in e-readers and has seen excellent popularity, both in the United Kingdom and everywhere else. It was first launched in November 2007 on the Amazon website, where it sold out in less than 5 hours due to an extreme amount of demand. Right now, the Kindle has had many improvements made to it and we are not at the 3rd revision of the device. If you get the Kindle UK, you will definitely be impressed with the features that it has to offer you. For example, the screen has been improved to offer better contrast and therefore be more legible. The Kindle can now read PDF files and also includes a web browser that allows you to view many different websites. However, take note that the device’s web browser is still in experimental stages and is more suited for viewing text, such as articles and news, rather than multimedia content.
Getting the new Kindle in the UK is quite easy and straightforward. All that you have to do is to go to the Amazon website and order it from there. Amazon currently offers free shipping if you chose the most economical shipping option, which will get your order delivered to you in the next few days. If you want to get it faster, you can opt for over night shipping, however you will then need to pay a bit more due to the shipping costs. Even though Amazon has had some issues keeping enough of the Kindle in stock when it first came out, this has now been fixed so you are sure to be able to get it if you want it.
When you order the Kindle UK, you will need to make a choice between the 3 different versions of it that are currently offered for sale. There is the Kindle WiFi, Kindle WiFi + 3G and the Kindle DX. The first two are actually the same device, what differs is that the 3G version supports cellular connections to get on the internet, which you can use to do research and shop on the Amazon site for additional ebooks to buy. The Kindle DX has a bigger screen than the Kindle WiFi and Kindle WiFi + 3G, however it is more expensive. When you visit the site, you will be able to see all the current models available and compare their features in detail so that you can make the right decision. You will also be able to purchase accessories for the Kindle directly on the Amazon site, such as a protective cover or carrying case. Another place to buy the Kindle in the UK is by going to Tesco. This can be a more convenient option for you if you prefer not to shop online or would like to get the e-reader quicker than waiting for it to arrive in the mail.
