Έκανα μια απόπειρα να το πάρω από το βρετανικό Amazon αλλά ήταν διαμορφωμένο ειδικά για τη βρετανική αγορά και με παρέπεμψε στο αμερικάνικο. Το θετικό στοιχείο του είναι η χαμηλή τιμή (αν το πάρεις από Αμερική και δεν πληρώσεις τους... φόρους που μπορεί και να τετραπλασιάσουν την τιμή του μέχρι να φτάσει στα χέρια σου) και το γεγονός ότι χρησιμοποιεί, όπως όλοι οι αναγνώστες ηλεκτρονικών βιβλίων άλλωστε, ηλεκτρονικό μελάνι, το οποίο εξασφαλίζει ξεκούραστο διάβασμα, χωρίς αντανακλάσεις, ακόμη και στον ήλιο.

Τιμή: 109 λίρες από βρετανικό Amazon Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi, 6" Display, Graphite - Latest Generation
και 139 δολάρια από αμερικάνικο Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi, 6" Display, Graphite - Latest Generation
και 233 ευρώ από ελληνικό ηλεκτρονικό κατάστημα

Το μειονέκτημα βέβαια είναι ότι δεν υποστηρίζει epub (τον πιο διαδεδομένο μορφότυπο για αναγνώστες ηλεκτρονικών βιβλίων) για εμπορικούς λόγους.

Πάντως, ακόμη και αν για την ελληνική αγορά δεν υπάρχουν διαθέσιμα βιβλία, θεωρώ ότι οι αναγνώστες ηλεκτρονικών βιβλίων είναι μονόδρομος, έτσι ώστε να γλυτώσουν και μερικά δεντράκια τη ζωή τους και να μπορούμε εύκολα να διαβάζουμε και να μεταφέρουμε τα βιβλία μας.

Amazon Kindle is an e-book reader. More precisely, it is a software, hardware and network platform developed by Amazon.com (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.
