5 Reasons Why You Should Buy the Amazon Kindle Over Other Gadgets


The Amazon Kindle has held its place at the top of the Amazon.com bestseller list for months now, and is still selling in huge numbers. With each generation, Amazon have improved the features and made it more accessible for other eBook formats. But if you’re still on the fence about whether you should buy the Kindle or another eBook reader/ tablet computer, here are five reasons why the Kindle is a winner.

1) You Only Use It To Read

There are many people out there asking why buy a Kindle when you could buy something fancy like an iPad? For a start, the Kindle costs far less. Secondly, you may not want all the bells and whistles that come with devices such as the iPad.

The truth is that the Kindle focuses on one thing: reading. Because of this, Amazon do their best to bring you the best reading experience possible. Sure, you could read eBooks on the iPad, but you wouldn’t get the benefit of the e-Ink screen, you’d find that your eyes quickly get tired out, and that you can’t read the screen out in bright sunlight.

If you love reading and want a device that won’t ruin the experience of reading physical books then the Kindle is definitely the option for you.

2) You Want Something Easy On The Eyes

The advanced e-Ink technology for the Kindle screen means that it’s extremely easy on the eyes. People who have tried the Kindle have said that it really isn’t much different to reading a book, and you can even read it clearly in bright sunlight (unlike other gadgets such as the iPad). The downside is that it doesn’t display color, and doesn’t light up in the dark, but most users are happy with this if it keeps it more like a “real” book.

3) Free 3G Around The World

If you buy the 3G version of the Kindle you’ll benefit from 3G connectivity around the world, for life! There’s no plan to sign up to, there are no data limits and you can use the 3G connectivity to buy from the Kindle store or even use Amazon’s experimental web browser. All included for the one time price of the Kindle device!

4) You Can Access Your eBooks On Other Digital Devices

Amazon offer free Kindle apps for the iPad, iPhone and your home computer. This means that you can have access to your eBooks from a huge range of locations, even when you don’t have your Kindle with you at the time. Although other eBook readers such as the Nook do offer apps for third party devices, others like the iPad are way behind in this respect.

5) You Have The Best eBook Store At Your Fingertips

Although you can buy eBooks from other eBook stores if you own a Kindle, there’s no denying the fact that the Kindle bookstore is the best in the world. No matter where you are, you can access the Kindle store from your device and browse free samples, the latest releases, or read user reviews. When you do decide to buy an eBook, it takes mere seconds to pay, and you’ll have it ready to read on the Kindle in under a minute! You can’t beat that!
