Re: Amazon Kindle Wi-Fi Review
Would like to add:
The device itself is just under 19cm long and 12.5cm wide and is roughly .5cm thick. As for weight, it comes in at about 8.7 ounces.
There are a ton of different settings, including device e-mail (allows you to e-mail books to your device), Voice Guide (allows you to navigate your kindle via voice), You can set a password, view all your device info, turn wifi on and off, view your highlights and even share them on facebook or twitter.
The experimental option includes prototypes and beta's Amazon is looking at adding to the device. The one currently available are Text to Speech, and MP3 Music Player, and a Web Browser. Through the experimental option you can test these features and provide feedback.
Two full dictionaries come on the device and they include, The New Oxford American Dictionary and the Oxford Dictionary of English. You can navigate these page by page or by a simple search.
If you are of the hard of seeing when it comes to small print. The kindle offers a huge variety of text sizes that are editable by the touch of a button. There are eight different text sizes ranging from really small, to a few words a page big. In the interface used to change the font height, you can also change the type face from "regular" to "condensed" or "san serif". On top of that, there are three different options for line spacing as well ranging from small to large. The last item through this particular option is screen rotation. you can set your text to view horizontal or vertical depending on how you like to hold it.
You can also sync the device to your kindle account online, and they will automatically download. This is great if you want to sync the books on your kindle with your ipad, iphone/itouch or android phone.
