Amazon's Kindle e-book reader comes with a 6-inch E-Ink display and built-in Wi-Fi capabilities. As of December 14, 2010, the Kindle retailed for £122 on Amazon's website. Amazon allows you to manage your Kindle from an Amazon account. You can register the device, subscribe and manage subscriptions to e-magazines and newspapers and review e-book orders. You can also save your payment information so you can quickly purchase e-books from Amazon.com that will go directly to your Kindle if it has a Wi-Fi or 3G signal.
