Good news for people who want to buy Amazon kindle here in India. Popular eCommerce site Indiaplaza.in is selling Amazon Kindle in Indian rupees! And their prices are by far the cheapest you can get anywhere on the web!
Indiaplaza.in is offering the following models:
All the above models come with a US power adapter (which accepts 100V – 240V, which means you can directly use it in India. You will probably just need a US to India plug converter) & a USB 2.0 cable (for connecting the kindle to the charger & also transferring files from your computer to the kindle).
Here is a quick list of features:
||Amazon’s 6″ diagonal electronic paper display, optimized with proprietary waveform and font technology, 600 x 800 pixel resolution at 167 ppi, 16-level gray scale.
|Size (in inches)
||7.5″ x 4.8″ x 0.335″ (190 mm x 123 mm x 8.5 mm).
||8.7 ounces (247 grams).
||None, because it’s wireless and doesn’t require a computer. Check wireless coverage.
||4GB internal (approximately 3GB available for user content).
||A single charge lasts for up to a month with wireless off. Keep wireless always on and it lasts for up to 10 days. Battery life will vary based on wireless usage, such as shopping the Kindle Store, web browsing, and downloading content. In low-coverage areas or in EDGE/GPRS-only coverage, wireless usage will consume battery power more quickly.
||Fully charges in approximately 4.5 hours via the included U.S. power adapter. Also supports charging from your computer via the included USB 2.0 cable.
||HSPDA modem (3G) with a fallback to EDGE/GPRS; utilizes Amazon Whispernet to provide wireless coverage via AT&T’s 3G high-speed data network in the U.S. and partner networks outside of the U.S. See Wireless Terms and Conditions.
||Supports public and private Wi-Fi networks or hotspots that use the 802.11b, 802.11g, or 802.11n (in b or g compatibility mode) standard with support for WEP, WPA and WPA2 security using password authentication; does not connect to WPA and WPA2 secured networks using 802.1X authentication methods; does not support connecting to ad-hoc (or peer-to-peer) Wi-Fi networks.
||USB 2.0 (micro-B connector) for connection to the Kindle U.S. power adapter or optionally to connect to a PC or Macintosh computer.
||3.5 mm stereo audio jack, rear-mounted stereo speakers.
|Content Formats Supported
||Kindle (AZW), TXT, PDF, Audible (Audible Enhanced (AA, AAX)), MP3, unprotected MOBI, PRC natively; HTML, DOC, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP through conversion.
||U.S. power adapter (supports 110V-240V), USB 2.0 cable, rechargeable battery.
Although most operators in India have started their 3G services, it is not clear whether they are supporting 3G for international carriers’ subscribers roaming here in India. The Kindle 3G coverage page still shows 2G coverage in india.
This is a great news for people who want to buy this amazing device in India and do not have anyone to bring it for them from abroad. This is also the cheapest online price we could find in India. It is also cheaper than Amazon’s international pricing which includes heavy import duty & shipping charges! So head over to Indiaplaza to buy it now!
It is good to finally see these cool gadgets being available in India to be purchased using local currency. There are rumors that Apple will be launching its iPad 2 in india pretty soon!
