Amazon have two model Kindles which look almost identical... Kindle WiFi (wireless) and Kindle 3G priced at $139 and $189 respectively. Apart from the price, what are the real differences between these two? Let's take a look: 1- Connectivity The Kindle WiFi (wireless) will connect to high-speed internet via a wireless router which you may already have set up in your home. It will also connect to WiFi hotspots scattered around your town such as in cafes, libraries, hotels and other such places. What this means is, if you can connect, you can download... it's a simple as that. The Kindle 3G, on the other hand, also has WiFi but in addition, it has 3G capability. Having 3G means that you can connect via the same wireless network used by cell phones. 3G allows you to connect anywhere there is 3G cell phone signal... without having to go through the trouble of setting up a wireless connection or having to roam around town looking for a connection in a WiFi hotspot. Here are the differences in connectivity between the 2 models: Kindle WiFi (wireless): wireless only Kindle 3G: WiFi (wireless) and 3G 2- Color There is not much of a range of color to choose from but here's what's available: Kindle WiFi (wireless): graphite (a charcoal color) Kindle 3G: graphite and white 3-Weight The difference in weight between the two is minimal, in fact, I doubt any would be able to tell the difference of only 0.2 ounces between them.
Kindle WiFi (wireless): 8.5 ounces Kindle 3G: 8.7 ounces 4- Battery Life With the wireless feature switched off, the battery in these two models will last for up to a month before needing to be recharged. With wireless on, however, here are the differences: Kindle WiFi (wireless): 21 days Kindle 3G: 10 days 5- Price Kindle WiFi (wireless):$139 Kindle 3G: $189 This leaves a difference in price between these two devices of $50 In conclusion, if you are looking at which of these e-readers is the best value for money, it really comes down to whether you want to spend an extra $50 on the Kindle 3G, giving you 3G capability and the color choice of either graphite or white. When it really comes down to it, the biggest deciding factor is how mobile you are. The 3G option will allow you to download your favourite books if you are travelling, or on the run, whereas, if you are stay around home and visit the occasional WiFi hotspot, the Kindle Wireless will do fine.
