I just read that the Amazon Kindle will be available in Hungary within a few weeks. Great news, at least I think so. It will not really be available in Hungary, as you will have to order it from Amazon.com, but if you order it from there, you will be able to order books, read books and use it in Hungary. It will be released October 19.
Books will in the start only be available in English, but for the happy people reading this article that shouldnt cause any problems. The price for the Amazon Kindle is 279 Amazon Kindle, and if you add the tax etc. to that you will end up around 60,000 Forints. If you first have the Amazon Kindle, the books will cost around 1000 Forints to download.
You want to check it out? Go to Amazon.com and order it today! (they will only ship it as it is released October 19, though).
But here is my question… Can it be nice to read a book from a screen? I would really like to try, because I am curious. But, holding a monitor as I read… it sounds so uncomfortable to me. Reading on the metro? Reading on the beach? I am not sure. Anyone tried such a thing before? I would love to hear some comments concerning this from people with experience.
