Amazon’s Kindle 3 is their very best selling, the most wish for, and the most gifted item on their site. Who would have thought that in the few years that the Kindle has been on the market that it would become such a huge success? In spite of all the naysayers who predicted that it would never been be popular it has become a must have product.
The New Kindle is lighter, smaller, faster, and has better contrast.
Without a doubt, the size and weight of the new kindle is the biggest draw for me. It’s smaller than the last edition by a significant margin. I’ve played around with the Kindle 2 and was impressed, but now looking at the size of the new Kindle, I’m blown away. It’s the absolute perfect size.

The evolution of the E Ink Pearl technology has produced a 50% better contrast that produces clearer pictures and words on the screen. The lack of glare on the screen mimics paper and allows for easy reading in the sun.
The slim 1/3 inch thickness and weight 8.5 ounces means it is much smaller and lighter than a book. This combined with its ability to store up to 3,500 books and a battery life of 1 month makes it the perfect travelling companion.
