Amazon Kindle is a new ebook reader device. You may have seen many other ebook readers, but they lack of many of the characteristics of Kindle 2.
There are 2 innovative devices that are changing the way we live. One is netbooks. The other is the new generation ebook readers.
Many of us have tons of documents and a number of books in PDF or Word (or similar) file format. Often, we print them to read. This costs money, time, and space.
Reading on the computer screen is bad for your eyes, tiring and you can't carry your computer anywhere you go. With laptops and netbooks, sometimes you just can't read the screen in a sunny place.
This is when an ebook reader is needed. The unique features that make a difference between Kindle and the others are:

Wireless: 3G wireless lets you download books right from your Kindle, anytime, anywhere; no monthly fees, service plans, or hunting for Wi-Fi hotspots
