I wouldn't recommend the kindle for browsing the web or emailing. It is possible to browse the web, but it's very very rudimentary and annoying. The kindle is not in any way an internet tablet, nowhere near it! Saying that, it is absolutely brilliant at what it does best, which is carrying e books, magazines, newspapers, etc.with you everywhere.

Yes, you can browse the internet on the Kindle Keyboard 3G. This is through the 3G or a WiFi connection, whichever is available. Personally, I find this a useful inovation on the device, it does tend to use the battery up quicker than using it just to read books, though.

You can't really access and send emails. You do have a special Kindle email address with the Kindle, but,as I understand it, this is so that you can receive documents from a registered email address from your or another computer.

Hope this helps.

The Kindle Keyboard model comes with a charger supplied. The cheaper Kindle (without the keyboard) does not come with a charger, these can be bought seperately. If you don't buy a charger this model is charged from your computer using the cable supplied.

The internal memory is 4gb and is not expandable. Your books are archived online so you can delete them to put extra stuff on (like music for your holidays) and get your books back whenever you wish.
4gb is massive by the way and will store many books and albums in MP3 format.

Yes. You can email docs to your registered Kindle email address and they will be automatically converted to Kindle format, ready to upload to your eBook.

You can email Word documents,HTML, JPEGs, etc. etc. to your Kindle email address (you get a Kindle address when you register your Kindle). Amazon then converts these documents into Kindle format which you can have sent directly to your Kindle or back to your computer.

They sometimes charge fees for sending documents via Whispernet direct to your Kindle so check this first. Sending back to your computer is free and you can easily transfer files via USB using drag and drop.

The one with the keyboard makes it easier to search for a specific book whilst the other one you have to use the directional button and scroll across the virtual keyboard on screen. I have the Kindle with the keyboard but actually prefer to use the laptop to search, browse and download my books.

Hope this helps.

From fiddling with both I found the one with keyboard easier to use if you are going on to use as web broser, but if you are simply reading books I think the cheaper one would do the job. I found that trying to navigate the text input on the cheaper version was a bit frustrating. We bought it for my mum aged 69 years young, but also want to use the browser when we are abroad to check flights so opted for the 3G version. Hope this helps.

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked in to your query, I can confirm that the Amazon Kindle with Keyboard, Wi-Fi and 3G cannot be read without light. We do currently offer a case with an integrated light which will allow you to use the Kindle in poorly lit conditions, for more information, please see catalogue number 501/0435 on our website.

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I can confirm that the Kindle is designed for you to read and listen to your favourite books, audio books, magazines and newspapers. It does not work in the same way as a netbook. Some Kindles have built in Wi-Fi to allow you to connect to the online book stores. It does not allow access to emails.

Thank you for using Q & A.
