I think the Kindle has much of what I need, but I am concerned with wireless downloads.
Yes I can get most of the books I want in Hawaii, but if I want a special book overseas can I do it? The forums suggest I can, but it is not clear.
Also I am a doctor. Many files I want to read are pdfs from the INTERNET. How can I put these unto the Kindle from my PC? Can the Kndle read thesde pdfs?
Lastly, I need to charge the Kindle from 240volt outlets. Can I?
All you need is a computer with internet access wherever you are in the world. You'd surf over to the online version of the Kindle store. Buy your book, then go to your Media Library downloads section. download the book (or subscriptiion) to the computer. connect the Kindle to the computer and drag and drop the files onto the Kindle in the "documents" folder.
