Amazon has introduced their new electronic book, Kindle, and the Kindle Store. Amazon is calling the Kindle a “wireless reading device”. What I find interesting is that you can purchase and download books wirelessly through Sprint’s EVDO network, but there are no monthly fees.
We wanted Kindle to be completely mobile and simple to use for everyone, so we made it wireless. No PC and no syncing needed. Using the same 3G network as advanced cell phones, we deliver your content using our own wireless delivery system, Amazon Whispernet. Unlike WiFi, you’ll never need to locate a hotspot. There are no confusing service plans, yearly contracts, or monthly wireless bills—we take care of the hassles so you can just read.
