Paperwhite and Calibre

Hi,


I am considering to buy a Kindle Paperwhite. Before I go ahead and order one, could you guys please help me answer a Calibre related question?. I have quite a big Calbre library on my computer, and I was therefore wondering if I will be able to use the Kindle's Wifi connection to connect to Calibre (running its built-in webserver) in order to sideload books or if I will have to physically connect the kindle to my computer?
Thank you,
Robert

Yes, you can use Calibre to email documents from your Calibre library to your paperwhite without plugging it into your computer.

Yes, you can use the Calibre server and the web browser, but personally I find that loading books via USB is a lot more convenient (you can load multiple books at once that way - the server is one at a time).
