Amazon to launch bigger, better Kindles!

Bigger, better kindles are finally coming our way. Amazon is conducting a press conference tomorrow (May 6, Wednesday) to launch the new, more advanced Kindle for e-readers.

Kindles appeal to many, especially heavy readers who like to read while traveling without wanting to carry the the weight of books. Amazon is now launching a larger version of its Kindle wireless device tailored for displaying newspapers, magazines and perhaps textbooks.

Apparently, Google too wants to get into the electronic book market so that they could offer a way for people to read the more – the 7 million scanned books from various devices including phones that use its Android operating system.

A little more about the Amazon Kindle

NY Times tells us that the current version of the Kindle has proved in a limited way that this is possible. Even though its six-inch black-and-white screen is made for reading books, Amazon offers Kindle owners subscriptions to more than 58 newspapers and magazines, including The Times, Newsweek and The Wall Street Journal. (The Journal subscription costs $9.99 a month, The Times is $13.99 a month and The New Yorker is $2.99 a month.)

Things are about to get better. We will only know more after the launch. One more day to go!
