Not sure which Kindle to buy? Buying a Kindle can be a confusing proposition. It was easy when there was only one choice, but now there are several Kindle models to choose from. Let us help you choose the best Kindle in India! Even if you’re still comparing e-readers and haven’t made up your mind yet, we have the information you need to know and answers to your questions about buying a Kindle.
Our family has owned four different Kindle models since the Amazon Kindle was first introduced. We’re readers and we love our current generation Kindle (or Kindle 4), our Kindle Keyboard (Kindle 3), and our brand-new Kindle Fire tablet. We’ll talk about each of them, tell you about the other models that are available, and hopefully we can help you decide.
By the end of the conversation, I feel confident that you’ll be able to make an educated decision on which Kindle to buy for yourself or for a gift. Warning! You might decide you want more than one! 🙂
Where can I buy a Kindle?
These days having a Kindle is very beneficial, especially for those who love to read books, newspapers, and magazines. Before you go out and buy a Kindle you need to know a few places where you can purchase them. Where you purchase the Kindle is going to be very important because this will affect how much you end up paying and what support and customer service you are going to receive.
The three main sources where to buy a Kindle from would include Amazons main site, eBay, and a number of different department store websites. However, the main vendor website, which would be Amazon Kindle Store, is absolutely the safest place to purchase though because of the security it offers. Also, when you decide to use Amazon you do not have to compete with other people for the best price as you would have to for instance on eBay. Another great thing about buying Kindle directly from Amazon is that there are always new and used options. So you have many options to pick from depending on your preferences and how much you want to invest.
Why Choose Kindle?
What about iPad? The latest Nook? How about a Kindle DX?
If you’re thinking about buying a Kindle for yourself or for a gift, you might also be wondering about the other e-book devices. Rather than a full-blown comparison of the Kindle to iPad, Nook, or the Sony Reader, here are some reasons that you should choose Kindle over the other devices, as well as situations in which a different device might be a better choice.
The Kindle is small and lightweight. Many thousands of Kindle owners use Kindle to hold their vast library of books in order to free up space on their bookshelves and in their pockets or purses. Rather than hauling heavy books with them wherever they go, it’s so simple to stow a Kindle for a trip to the doctor’s office or a vacation around the world. The Kindle’s light weight makes it very comfortable to hold and read, and the Pearl technology e-ink is crisp, easy to read, and comfortable for long-term reading. There’s also no problem with glare when reading outside – at the beach or the bus stop.
When compared with other small e-readers, Kindle wins hands down. It has the fast page turns, the crisp text, and the Kindle’s light weight. The overall performance of the Kindle outranked Sony, the Apple iPad is the price; expect to spend $600 and up without the monthly data plan (if you need that – and if you have an iPad, you probably do want internet access and, thus, a data plan). It’s true that the iPad screen is beautiful and impressive, but the backlit screen is hard on the eyes, so not good for those who read for hours on end. Also, there’s the glare factor. An iPad simply is not usable outdoors. The final factor is the size and weight. If carrying a larger device is no problem, consider holding a heavier device while reading for a long period of time. If your eyesight doesn’t fail you, the strength in your wrists might. It’s hard to imagine that a few ounces can make that much difference, but one of the biggest complaints among iPad owners is that they get tired from holding it.
Best Kindle Readers in India 2017
The Kindle Voyage is the best e-readers you can buy in India. It is more compact, sharper and essentially just a step up from any ebook reader the brand has made since the inception of the technology a few years ago. The Voyage is also more comfortable to hold than any other e-reader I’ve used, as long as you’re willing to keep it out of a case. It brings a bezel-less display, a high resolution screen and automatic brightness control. The kindle voyage looks more like a tablet, the rear design reinforces this, mimicking that of the Kindle Fire tablets, with angular lines and a power button that falls neatly under your forefinger, if you’re holding the device in your left hand anyway. The angular rear panel, low weight of 180g and soft-touch finish combine to make this is the easiest Kindle to keep a hold of. It’s slightly sleeker than previous models too, at 162x115x7.6mm.
