Kindle Internet Options
If you are looking for the main Kindle Internet website, it is at Amazon.
Although you might find some of what you want for your Kindle in your city, for Kindle Internet devices, Kindle accessories, and Kindle books, both free and for purchase, there are many other Kindle Internet sources. You can find all their offerings at their store.
Kindle Internet Sources
- Target’s website
- Office Depot’s website
- Best Buy’s website
If you think you might get better prices on Kindles by trying other Kindle Internet sources besides Amazon, check this out. I did a lot of research on this. Amazon subsidizes and is even thought to sell Kindles at a loss. They make their profit from margins on other items and from the advertising that is on the lower priced version of each model. Resellers can’t compete with that. Margins are almost non-existent whether you buy a Kindle at a local store or purchase a Kindle on the Internet. We have even seen resellers list a price that is higher than Amazon’s price!
Kindle Internet – Accessories
For accessories, you can find many more options and more variation in prices than for Kindle Internet devices. Your largest selections will be on the Internet vs. in local stores. Also try kiosks in malls for covers, lights, etc. But if you want to see over a thousand accessories online in one place, check out these.
Kindle Internet – eBooks
For Kindle Internet eBooks you have many options. I like Amazon itself for the huge base of free books and the widest selection of books even at a price. Overall, they have over a million available. If you want eBooks for your Kindle, just go to their bookstore.
Kindle Internet – Access
If you are wondering which models have Kindle Internet access, here is some information about that. There was an EVDO (high-speed data network) model and there are Wi-Fi models, and 3G models, and then there are models that have both Wi-Fi and 3G. The original 1st generation model had EVDO Internet access. Wi-Fi models can pick up free Internet signals from “hot spots” that may be in close proximity, such as one might find at a coffee shop, hotel, or resort, etc. 3G models have a built-in cellular phone and connect like a cell phone with a cell tower for Internet access. The 3G coverage is included, i.e. free.
For your convenience, here is a list of the models that have the three types of Kindle Internet access, EVDO, Wi-Fi and 3G cellular:
Kindle Fire – has color, touchscreen, and Wi-Fi
Kindle Touch 3G – has touchscreen, free 3G, and Wi-Fi
Kindle Touch – has touchscreen and Wi-Fi
Kindle DX – has a larger screen and free 3G globally
Kindle Keyboard 3G – has free 3G and Wi-Fi
Kindle Keyboard – has Wi-Fi (used to be called the Kindle 3)
Kindle Wireless Reading Device (2nd generation) – has free 3G; discontinued; available used
Kindle Wireless Reading Device (1st generation) – has EVDO wireless; discontinued; available used
Those allow you to get to details, specs, etc. Be aware that on many of the pages for newer model Kindles you can toggle between the ads version and the no-ads version of the same model.
