Oct 5 (THAINDIAN NEWS) According to Joel Johnson, the new eBook reader from Amazon known as the Kindle manages to accomplish all of it major goals efficiently.

It has a smaller screen that the Sony Reader, but is said to still be readable, and is on the right path towards replacing paper books. The data plan is always on and no subscription is required. It is powered by Sprint’s EV-DO network.

The store for the eBook is built in and works easily, and the device was said to be easy to handle and comfortable to hold. This main issue was the price.

The $400 dollars which you pay when buying the Kindle Reader is not the last of the fees associated with the device. Not only do you have to buy the eBooks from Amazon for around ten dollars a piece, but there are additional fees, for the data which is downloaded to the Kindle automatically.

Subscribing to the Kindle blog is about 2 bucks a month, and then newspapers are about 15 bucks a month. This information is available for free on the Internet, which makes paying for it on your Kindle seem silly.
