Tom's Hardware is Now Available on Kindle!

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 27 comments

Now you can get Tom's Hardware content beamed right to your Kindle.

The new Kindle released during summer was improved in almost every way. It had 50 percent better contrast than any other e-reader on the market at the time, a new sleek design with a 21 percent smaller body while still keeping the same 6-inch-size reading area, and a 15 percent lighter weight at just 8.7 ounces.

The price was also better too with a $139 Wi-Fi version and a $189 3G model.

Whether you have one of the shiny new Kindles, or one of the previous models on which you've read many books, there's a Tom's Hardware e-reader experience that's built specifically for the Amazon device.

The Tom's Hardware Kindle blog collects content from the site, which is then fully downloaded onto your Kindle so you can read them even when you're not wirelessly connected. Unlike RSS readers, which often only provide headlines, blogs on Kindle give you full text content and images, and are updated wirelessly throughout the day.

Check out Tom's Hardware for Kindle.

    Sounds more like an ad for the Kindle...instead of a news story. Hmm..

    I love my new Kindle but why am I going to pay $1 per month for something I can read on a PC for free and in colour?

    Sense kindle runs android, does that mean that you will have an android app available soon?

    EDIT: At least thats what the people at the local barens and noble told me, I'm not 100% sure though...

    The lcd on the smartphones are too small and too bright, reading a book on them is uncomfortable.

    depends on the person, if its too bright then you can dim the led and if its to small, i wouldnt recommend anything less than 4.3"

    Kindle and Amazon's closed system sucks! Use the Calibre software and it will automatically generate "eBooks" in .epub format for all the popular feeds and news papers.

    Go on Tom's... see if you can create a Recipe in Calibre for the Toms Feed (complete with links and photos).

    No Ads on the Kindle, I'd guess. That's why it's $0.99/Month.

    Even if you dim the brightness the lcd screen remains too bright. I don't own a kindle, but I fiddled with one, if you want to do some serious reading it's fantastic, way better than any smartphone, slate, computer/laptop lcd. Of course the kindlke screen has a downsize, because it's only good to reading books and worthless for anything else.

    Get me a colour Kindle that can use a real internet browser and play video, music or pictures from SD cards and people will buy it in droves.
