Oprah introduced the world to a new craze, reading books on an electronic device, called a Kindle. The Kindle is an ebook reader that allows the user to upload thousands of ebooks on the little device that is both portable and easy to manage. Unlike Sony’s ebook device, the Kindle uses Whispernet to send ebooks to the device in less than a minute when ordered off Amazon.
Although the Kindle was available before Oprah showcased it on her show as one of her favorite things due to its portability and eco-friendliness, it gained major popularity afterwards. Consumers quickly bought many of the original Kindles, only to be outdone a few short months later when the Kindle 2 came on the scene. The Kindle 2 is now even more popular than the original and is the most wished for product on Amazon.
Due to the upcoming promotion of the Apple iPad that has a built in e-reader device, Amazon has started a new promotion that allows certain customers to get a Kindle 2 absolutely free! First of all, you have to be signed up for Amazon’s newsletter. Next, wait patiently and cross your fingers you are selected for this promotion. Basically, customers purchase the device then have the choice of telling Amazon they are not satisfied and get their money back and get to keep the Kindle as well! In order to increase your chances of scoring a free kindle, you should probably enter a few contests. Good luck!
