New Kindle 2011

New Kindle 2011

Have you heard about the All NEW KINDLE?

What was that?

Did I hear something?

You did hear right! The new Kindle is Lighter.Smaller.Faster…And NOOOO! This is not a song title of some French dance Robot duo AKA Daft Punk.

This small and nimble ebook reader from Amazon is a must-give gift this Christmas…

yeah…I can see you squinting in doubt…right…let me lay it out for you, naked and honest (truth):

Your wife, husband, daughter, son, grandma, grandpa or beloved dog – Brian – they love to read, am I right or am I right???

Heck…I bet you love to read, no? And what better gift to give to your loved ones than a “gift-of-knowledge-passion-fun” – A BOOK! Oh, let me correct myself…How about…1000 books in a pocket?!

This New Kindle can hold hundreds of ebooks, it’s 30% lighter than the previous model (which was already ridiculously light) – weighing just 170 grams!

I know! I know! It’s shockingly light and portable.

It has a smaller body – yet it fits the same big 6 inch screen (as the previous Kindle 3G).

What makes it better than the last model (I assume you used it, haven’t you?) is that turning pages is now 10% faster.

I myself am a very satisfied owner of the previous Kindle…and it’s it’s pretty much the only thing that annoys me about that previous model – turning pages takes just a weeeeeeeee bit too long for my pedantic taste…it is just slightly noticeable…and I always wished for a faster, lighter and smaller Kindle.

Fret no more! ‘Tis a new faster Kindle has arrived this Christmas and it lays under your Christmas tree, won’t you agree? I know you don’t believe in Santa…oh, sorry, I thought you’ve heard…sorry to spoil this news for you…well, you’ll be fine, my dear!

Especially with this sexy new reading device.

Many people have expressed their satisfaction with the New Kindle.

Last time I was in Greggs, Dave from Hatfield was raving about how much he was enjoying reading books for his English GCSEs Evening Class at the local educational centre…

Others have also expressed their joy and admiration for this new marvel of reading devices. Here are some opinions I have quoted straight from the Amazon site:

The new Kindle is faster, slimmer and lighter than before, and it’s cheaper too. Amazon has a new winner on its hands.” – PC Pro
Astonishing value for access to the best ebook ecosystem around.” – Mark Harris, Pocket-Lint
A brilliant eReader, it’s cheaper and smaller than previous models, but without any serious omissions.” – Seth Barton,
The smaller, lighter, more portable Kindle gets everything right. At £89 it is great value and still the best ebook reader available.” – Computeractive
Amazon kept the same stunning 6-inch e-Ink screen, shrinking everything else around it to make it more portable.” – Spencer Dalziel,


It looks just like paper, it holds thousands of books (and MP3s) and it lets you get new books in less than 60 seconds (over Wi-Fi or 3G – your choice).

Sounds like this is something you might be interested in?


P.S. It costs £89 – equivalent of 8 books. And for £89 you will have access to Millions of FREE ebooks – this alone is worth the £89.

P.P.S. If you are getting this device for your partner – BEWARE – this New Kindle 2001 readers will replace you entirely, because they won’t be able to take their bright and shiny eyes off of their favourite books. On the other hand…they will worship you and your fine taste in gifts. FOREVER.

In the UK Kindle is sold by Amazon as well as Currys and Carphone Warehouse shops around the UK.

I would strongly advise you purchase it from Amazon directly, because Amazon is in fact the maker of those neat Kindle devices.
This makes any potential disputes and guarantee claims much much easier to handle than going through a 3-rd party provider, such as Currys or CW. Continue reading

What’s the life of Kindle Battery?

According to Amazon:

“A single charge lasts up to two months with wireless off based upon a half-hour of daily reading time. If you read for one hour a day, you will get battery life of up to one month. Keep wireless always on and it lasts for up to 3 weeks. Battery life will vary based on wireless usage, such as shopping the Kindle Store, web browsing, and downloading content.”

“Fully charges in approximately 4.5 hours via the included UK power adapter. Also supports charging from your computer via the included USB 2.0 cable.”

I tend to read a lot (2-3 hours a day when on holidays) and from my experience fully charged Kindle device will last approx. 2-3 weeks with the wireless switched off.
