First I want to explain what a wireless reading device isto those who might not be familiar with this product. Anelectronic reading device also known as an e-book reader is awireless reading device that lets you download books,blogsnewspapers,and magazines etc. Periodicals are automatically sent or downloaded to the device.
Electronic readers are designed to operate on their ownindependently, An example is Amazon's model called the Kindlewhich is connected directly to the Amazon Whispernet through 3G technology for media flow and synching and even providesinternet browsing. One great advantage with Amazon's Kindlemodel is there's no service plan, contracts or bills to worry about because this feature is paid for by Amazon. About the only cost upon the user is power consumption used by the battery; and having to recharge every 4 to 5 days of continuous operation as opposed to 2 weeks with the wireless turned off.
It is said by many that the wireless reading device has revolutionizedthe reading experience and made it more convenient for all. What wewant to during this article is take a closer look at the wirelessreading device and its advantages. We are going to focus on Amazon'se-reading device called the Kindle since it the most known reading device at this time.
There is a growing number of electronic reading devices for easier more convenient reading that are available or are being developed by companies. Companies objective is to make a reading device that delivers a reading experience which is similar to a book but is easier and more convenient.

The kindle model provided by Amazon also uses a dedicated wireless network called whispernet which delivers its e-books and other reading materials. Within a minute of placing an order users are able to begin enjoying thier reading material.
Another well liked thing for example about the kindle wireless reader is its crisp black and white paper like display. For an electronic screen its very easy on the eyes especially for those who read for long periods. The display is based on the Vizplex version of E ink technology with no backlighting. That makes reading 100% natural in bright sunlight and you won't have a problem with the screen getting too hot from reading too long either.
When selecting an ereader the clarity and sharpness of the image displyed is something that should be considered. Most people are so used to the look and feel of paper. Some questions to ask might be, Is the electronic display close the the real thing? Would it be a strain to read the text and would you be able read comfortable for long periods? Some models do provide a paper like display which reads like real paper, some models also provide up to 16 shades of gray for clear text and even crisper images.
Another thing to consider is it's ease of use. Just like any other electronic device, is the reading device ease and simple to hold and use? Does it have wireless connectivity? Can it be accessed on the move and at different locations? Do you have to rely on a hotspot? Some models are wireless and let you download books right from your reader, anytime, anywhere and no Wi-Fi hotspots are required.
Another to consider is the variety and type of reading material accessable other than books. Are some of the best known newspapers, magazines, blogs, and other media as well as other sources of reference accessible?
Another is its size and weight, portablity. Some ereaders are lightweight and come with slim designs. Some as thin as most magazines which most people like. Most are also made of very durable materials. Another thing to consider is its power source. Does it provide a long lasting battery which will allow you to read for long periods without having to recharge your battery. Some models provide a long lasting battery which allows you to read for days with having to recharge.
One important thing to consider is if there are any hidden costs or additional costs. Do you have to pay for wireless services? Some models have no monthly fee and require no service plan.
Overall there are many positive advantages with owning an ereader such as its capacity to hold over 1,500 books at a give time, another is its almost instant download of which are delivered in less that 60 seconds, another popular feature provided by some which is called the text to speech feature which can read newspapers, magazines, blogs and books out loud to you.
