Kindle 3 Photo Overload

Wondering what the Kindle 3 looks like?

Well, there’s a painfully exhaustive way to find out.

After taking around 400 Kindle 3 photos and throwing out around 300 here are the Kindle 3 photo sets we have left –

  1. Kindle 3 Photos – Daytime Kindle 3 photos including each of the three fonts (photos 3, 4, and 5), the largest and smallest font (photos 6 and 7), and a photo of 7 eReaders all in one shot (2nd last photo).  
  2. Kindle 3 Browser Photos – Loads of photos of the Kindle 3 Browser, the new Article Mode, and of various websites loaded in the Browser. Includes close-ups and details on which common sites work and which don’t.
  3. Kindle 3 vs Nook Photos – Lots of comparisons of Kindle 3 and Nook including thinness (or lack thereof), size, various font sizes, and general desirability.  
  4. Kindle 3 vs Sony 600 Photos – Comparisons at tiny, medium, and largest font sizes and also close-up comparison shots. 
  5. Kindle 3 nighttime photos – Nighttime Kindle 3 photos including a beautiful book cover (photo 3), photos of the new WebKit Browser including Article Mode (photos 4, 5, and 6), and photos of Kindle 3 with the LED reading light on (photos 9 and 10),   
  6. Kindle 3 Comparison photos – Kindle 3 compared against Kindle 2, Kindle 2 US, iPad, Nook (need better photos here), Kindle DX 1, Kindle DX 2, and Sony Reader. There’s even a Kindle 3 vs Kindle 2 vs Kindle DX 1 size comparison shot.   
  7. Kindle Lighted Cover Photos – Photos covering what the case looks like, the leather exterior, what it looks like with the Kindle in it, and most importantly, what it looks like at night with the lights off and the Kindle powered LED light on.
  8. Kindle 3 Manga Photos – Photos of Manga on the Kindle 3 after using Mangle. Manga shows up well and there are lots of options including zoom and the option to change to landscape orientation.

Those are 60+ of the most illustrative Kindle 3 photos.

Kindle 3 Photo Sets coming soon –

  1. My Kindle 3 is getting closer. This was just posted on my order invoice.

    “These items are being prepared for shipment, and this portion of your order cannot be canceled or changed.”

    However no ship date given… WOO HOO!!! I ordered my Kindle 3 July 29th.

  2. I’d like to see some photo comparisons of the kindle 3’s PDF capabilities vs that of the DX 2. This is the main determining factor for me as to which one I get.

    1. Sean,
      I can tell you right off the bat that the Kindle DX 2 is much better for PDFs because of the larger screen size.
      Please check the photos and videos on the Kindle DX 2 PDF post.

      Will try to add something later. However, the Kindle 3 isn’t very usable for PDFs because it’s screen is so small – On Kindle DX 2 what you can see in 1 to 2 pages would take 3 to 5 pages on Kindle 3. DX 2’s screen area is 2.5 times that of Kindle 3.
