It’s cheaper by $250.00 because the Kindle for PC app is an absolutely free download from Amazon. I installed the app last night and it worked like a charm!
It’s like Kindle without err, Kindle. Now you can buy and read Kindle books from Amazon even without the actual device. If you do have one, you can sync it your PC with it automatically via Amazon’s Whisphersync.
The only limitation is that Kindle newspapers, magazines, and blogs are not currently available for Kindle PC. It’s still a good bargain though, because you can still access the same since you’re already on a PC anyways.
Plus, for someone like me who lives in a country where customs officials have imposed a “book blockade” and continue to milk book lovers for money for imported books, the Kindle for PC is a cheap solution.
So, what do you guys & gals think of Kindle for PC? You can download a copy here.
