Magazines formatted as PDF files on your computer can be transferred to your Kindle using Amazon's conversion tool. The Kindle uses Amazon, which links your Amazon account to the device for media transferring and conversion. A Kindle e-mail account is used to transmit converted documents to your device, and it costs nothing if you bypass the 3G delivery fee for file conversion.
