If you are an enthusiastic book reader and love reading your favorite authors using e-readers, then this is going to be the best choice for you. One of the best e-book reader makers Amazon is introducing its Kindle Voyage for Readers beginning today.
Amazon seems to be becoming very active in the Indian market given the massive potential. The company is going to benefit immensely from its fast expanding e-commerce site Amazon.in as far as the local Indian market is concerned. It is already the second biggest online retailing site after Flipkart, the local startup. There is no doubt that it is catching pretty fast and within a few months time Amazonâ€™s Indian arm is going to be as popular as Flipkart if not more.
The company after launching its 7th generation of Kindle in the US and the world market is introducing the product here too. The e-reader comes with many exciting features. It not just comes with the best display quality of all Kindle products, it is also the companyâ€™s thinnest offering yet.
While talking about the product Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO said, â€œOur mission with Kindle is to make the device disappear, so you can lose yourself in the author’s worldâ€¦Kindle Voyage is the next big step in this mission. With the thinnest design, highest resolution and highest contrast display, reimagined page turns, and all of the features that readers love about Kindleâ€”books in seconds, no eyestrain or glare, readability in bright sunlight, and battery life measured in weeks, not hoursâ€”Kindle Voyage is crafted from the ground up for readers.â€
Officials of the companyâ€™s Indian arm are also very excited. Rajiv Mehta, companyâ€™s country manager says, â€œThe stylishly designed Kindle Voyage was crafted to give readers the best possible reading experienceâ€¦They can download books from the selection of 3 million eBooks in the India Kindle Store, read for hours without eyestrain or glare, and even read in bright sunlight. With free 3G available on Kindle Voyage, users never have to hunt for or pay for a Wi-Fi hotspot. With a battery life that’s measured in weeks, it is the perfect reading companion.â€ The new device has been priced at Rs 16, 499.
