Just got news from my Amazon associates central account that the Amazon Kindle is now back in Stock! It sold out pretty quickly last time...

amazon.com/gp/…-20

It's also now only $399 USD instead of the previous $599. And with the exchange rate and free shipping it's a BARGAIN!

I also don't know if we can get it shipped to the UK but I'm going to look into it now.

"houtukdeals" NOT "hotusdeals"
CANT BE ORDERED TO THE UK, VOTED COLD

How do you get it to the uk without going through an external shipping service.

Kindle uses the Sprint CDMA2000 EvDo network for its wireless capability. It uses that network to connect to the Amazon store and to download books. That particular wireless standard is not available in the UK.

Hmm, a £200 glorified e-book reader that people from the UK can't get. Cold I'm afraid.

Isn't this just a stripped out version of a hand held PC with a bigger screen?
It will become a hot deal when its 75% cheaper.

It'll be hot when it's in colour and when it will read all ebook formats inc. pdf - until then it's way, way overpriced -

what is it?

An ebook reader.

I LOVE technical gimmicks; but I'm afraid I really can't see the point of this.
Add to that a £200 price tag and as said you're approaching an Asus which has so much more going for it.
Then add the fact it can't be used properly in the UK, and you have one very expensive dust collector.

So it reads books out loud?

I really do not know what this is..

The Internet really is an amazing place! You can find information on pretty much everything :w00t:

Amazon Kindle (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Amazon Kindle is an electronic book (e-book) device launched in the United States by Amazon.com in November 2007. It uses an electronic paper display, reads the proprietary Kindle (AZW) format, and downloads content over Amazon Whispernet, which uses the Sprint EVDO network.

The Kindle can be used stand alone without a computer. Whispernet is accessible through Kindle without any fee. On the release day, the Kindle Store had more than 88,000 digital titles available for download.

Amazon's first offering of the Kindle sold out in five and a half hours and the device remained out of stock until late April 2008. It retails for $399 from Amazon.com.

Uh, it's e-paper so the monochrome is for ease of reading and conservation of battery life.

I think these ebook readers using the "e-ink" technology will catch on. I was looking at the kindle the other day and I think its main rival is probably the Sony Reader. There's a review here

Its not just books these can be used for - they can also be used for reading blogs, pdf, word docs, newspapers etc. For instance in the US you can get your newpaper content downloaded to your Kindle automatically.

They will become popular but I'm not buying one till the price drops substantially.

They will become popular



I'm with you gari189 - I think they'll be fantastic - but right now v.v. expensive and monochrome - but they will get better and cheaper and when they do I'll be there for one

It's basically a screen about 8" x 6" that shows letters in black on white. The advantage of these is you can in theory load the equivalent of The Encyclopaedia Britannica plus the collected works of Shakespeare plus lots of other stuff into a paperback book only half an inch thick. The simple black and white screen is easy to read in all conditions and uses very little battery power so doesn't need recharging for ten days or so - which gives it the edge on the eeepc. They'll be huge in the future but for now US/UK copyright restrictions make them impractical to use here - getting the material to put on them can be a pain.

Not to anyone who lives in the UK!

Dont forget to add shipping charges, customs duty & VAT and Post office collection charges!

This is for UK deals, not american ones :thumbsup:
