Reading Ebooks Without A Kindle

There are two things Amazon.com has done in the recent past to make things a little easier for people who do not own kindles. They have introduced:

The Kindle Cloud Reader: an e-book reader which lets you read digital books on a browser.

The Kindle Daily Deal: which is offering substantial discounts on popular ebooks.

Both are great strategies from Amazon. The former should increase sales, while the latter will bring more people to their site regularly (after all, who wants to miss out on great offers)?

    Yep, I’m really looking forward to their launching the Kindle in India.

    Well, Amazon’s on its way, so lets hope they us sell Kindles directly. Otherwise we’ll continue to pay a stiff duty on them, not a way to popularize ereaders in India.

    If Amazon can manufacture Kindles in India and price them right, what a great market that would be!

    Lets hope for the best. It is the younger generation that is mostly tech savvy right now, but I can imagine a lot of older people wanting Kindles because of readability – for those who don’t know, you can increase the font size. I can’t imagine the text-to-speech feature being too popular here – American programs beamed on Television have captioning because people a lot of people cannot follow American accents.

    Perhaps if they came up with digitized books in local languages?
