Currently there are over 350,000 ebooks available at Kindle store. The list includes 104 New York Times Best Sellers. One great thing about Kindle store is that you get to sample books before you buy. The first few chapters of all ebooks are available for download free, if you like the book you can then buy with just a click of a button.

All you need to do is to buy an ebook and in a few seconds, the book will be automatically delivered to your Kindle wirelessly at no extra cost to you. Kindle also enables you to convert your existing un-protected e-books and documents to kindle format. Formats currently supported include Microsoft word, HTML, TXT, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, PRC and MOBI files.

As for PDF, Kindle is not perfect yet with converting PDF. However, a MOBI converter tool can be used to convert PDF files to MOBI format before finally converting to Kindle. Files can be converted and wirelessly delivered to Kindle for 10 US cents. Files can also be converted and manually downloaded free via USB.

You can also download audiobooks from audible.com into your Kindle but you have to first download it to your computer via your internet connection. You can then transfer from your PC to Kindle.

However, Amazon Kindle 1.0 can only be used wirelessly in the United States. This is because Kindle uses a unique wireless delivery technology, Amazon Whispernet. Whispernet runs on CDMA EVDO. For now, Whispernet is only available on Sprint’s US EVDO high-speed data network.

However, Kindle can be used outside United States. According to Amazon, the internal memory can hold up to 200 titles. Kindle includes an SD memory extension, which greatly increases the number of titles you can carry overseas, when travelling for business or pleasure. Once downloaded, titles can be read anywhere in the world as long as you can constantly charge battery.

Every e-book you buy on Kindle store is automatically backed up for you online in your personal media library. You can re-download titles wirelessly on Whispernet coverage or with USB if outside US.

For now Amazon do not ship Kindle 1 e-book reading device outside the US.
