Kindle (Wi-Fi)

This is a great choice if you already have a high-speed internet connection and a wireless router set up in your home and do not need the added convenience of a 3G connection.  3G enables you to download books anytime, anywhere, while on the go. If you do not have Wi-Fi set up in your home, Kindle 3G may be a better option.

(Note: Your Kindle can connect to Wi-Fi networks or hotspots that use the 802.11b or 802.11g standard.)

Kindle 3G (Free 3G + Wi-Fi)

This is the easiest option because there is no wireless setup—you are ready to shop, get books, and read right out of the box. Built-in Free 3G connectivity uses the same wireless signals that cell phones use, but there are no monthly fees or commitments—Amazon pays for Kindle’s 3G wireless connectivity.  The added convenience of 3G enables you to download books anytime, anywhere, while on the go—without having to find a Wi-Fi hotspot connection.  With wireless coverage in over 100 countries and territories, Kindle 3G is a great option for travelers

Now that Amazon has announced two new versions of the Kindle at an affordable price, everyone has been talking and rushing to get one.

The two new models are:

1 –  Free 3G + Wi-Fi $189

2 – Wi-Fi Only – $139

Both new models boast the following new features:

  • Better contrast on screen – they utilize the new screens that the DX does. And having one of the new DXs, I can say the screen contrast is much better.
  • Longer batter life – up to one month on a single charge, with wireless turned off.
  • Double storage – now up to 3500 books.
  • New fonts – crisper and darker fonts.
  • Built in Wi-fi.
  • 20% faster page turns.
  • New web-browser – they still say this is experimental, so it may not be new at all, as they’ve always had a browser on the Kindles.

Kindle Wi-Fi is identical to the $189 Kindle, except it doesn’t have the go-anywhere 3G wireless.  If you’re going to use your Kindle primarily in locations where you’ll have access to a Wi-Fi hotspot – like at home – then Wi-Fi Kindle is a good choice.

Both new generation Kindles have access to the same Kindle store with the largest selection of books people want to read, plus top newspapers and magazines.  Over 510,000 of these books are $9.99 or less, incluing 80 of the New York Times best sellers.

You can pre-order yours today and it will ship on August 27th.  Just under a month away!
