What are the current Kindle tech specs?

Are you thinking of joining the technical revolution in reading and getting yourself one of the new amazing Amazon Kindles that have hit the market? These marvellous products do away with the need to have a shelf full of books, allowing you to carry an entire library in your pocket! In this blog, we are going to try and make your decision a little clearer as we present the current Kindle tech specs.

All of people's concerns about the Kindle seem to revolve around the screen and the battery life. However, there is no reason to let either of those things concern you too much, as the battery life will get you through at least a week of reading in most circumstances, and the screen is completely readable in even the strongest of sunlight. In fact, it is like looking at a piece of paper that is backlit.

The technology behind the screen is called eInk Technology, and it delivers a screen that is 600 x 800 pixels with a resolution at 167 ppi and a four level gray scale. The Kindle also comes with a USB 2.0 connection to optionally let you connect to a PC or a Mac. For audio purposes, the Kindle comes with 3.5mm stereo audio jack, and rear-mounted mono speaker.

The Kindle reader come with 64MB Ram, a 256 MB internal storage of which only 180 MB is available and can hold about 200 books. IF this isn't enough for you, then it is possible to connect an SD Card through the available SD Card slot. Cards up to 4 GB in size work with the Kindle.
