Kindle from amazon

Amazon released the Kindle for PC application free of charge, allowing users to read Kindle books on a Windows PC Amazon later released a version for the Macintosh. Versions for mobile devices running on operating systems from Research in Motion, Apple, Android and Google are also available free of charge. None of these alternate versions can currently read newspapers, magazines, or blogs, the way they are readable on the Kindle device itself. Amazon has announced that periodical support will soon be added to the Kindle apps for other platforms

Amazon Kindle is an e-book reader. More precisely, it is a software, hardware and network platform developed by (subsidiary Lab126) for the rendering and displaying of e-books and other digital media.
Several hardware devices support this platform, including a main “Kindle” line and a parallel “Kindle DX” line. The most recent Kindle device is the third incarnation of the main line, officially named “Kindle”, but usually referred to as “Kindle 3”.Kindle 3 was released on August 27, 2010. User reports indicate that the new display on the Kindle 3 is noticeably superior to previous generations.
The Kindle DX line features larger screens than the main Kindle line. It is marketed as more suitable for displaying newspaper and textbook content, however no Kindle model preserves the print edition page numbers used when citing sources in school papers and scholarly research. Amazon has also introduced Kindle software for use on various devices and platforms, including Microsoft Windows, iOS, BlackBerry, Mac OS X (10.5 onwards), Android and soon Windows Phone 7.

The Kindle hardware devices use an E Ink brand electronic paper display that features 16 shades of gray. This allows for a long battery life and easy readability. Content for the Kindle can be purchased online and downloaded wirelessly, using either standard Wi-Fi or Amazon’s 3G “Whispernet” network.Whispernet is accessible without any monthly fee or wireless subscription, although fees can be incurred for the delivery of periodicals and other content when roaming internationally beyond the customer’s home country. Through a service called “Whispersync”, customers can synchronize reading progress, bookmarks and other information across Kindle hardware devices and other mobile devices.
