My New Amazon Kindle Unboxing [Photos]

I recently did buy Amazon Kindle in India, and now see the Kindle unboxing photos which I am eager to share with you. If you already own a Kindle, then it’s probably nothing new to you, but for the prospective buyer, these will encourage you to buy Kindle.

The Kindle shipped to Delhi in 3 days by DHL Courier. I confess the package size was much smaller than I expected.

Neatly packed in Amazon’s typical Frustration Free Packing. Reads “Assembled in China” and has many Amazon logos.

Amazon thanks me.

To my surprise, free 3G actually activated instantly on Kindle in India. The battery is also 3/4 charged (which should last for 20 days with wireless off!)

    Any review about Indian (Hindi) language support? If ti is there, I may buy one ASAP.

    • Aravind says:

      There is no support for Hindi language in the Kindle.

      • Vikash says:

        There is a ebook reader called pi on with support for Indian languages. You may want to check it out.

          Thats a cheap made in taiwan cousin of kindle.
          Poor navigation options, low on features. Don’t buy it. I screwed up my 10K on it!!!

    Great article, as the Amazon Kindle itself is 190 mm x 123 mm x 8.5 mm in dimensions, can you provide me an approximate dimensions of the package delivered by Amazon?

  10. Ninad says:


    Want to buy a Kindle. Just require a piece of advice as i have never ordered anything from with shipping in India. Is this hassle free shipping or do we have to visit the post office/custom office to get the kindle.
    The cost of the Kindle in Rs is the same if bought from indiatimes or rediff may be a difference of Rs.500/+ or -. But the support/service reviews of these both are bad

    Your opinion/advice required


  11. Amit says:

    So the 3G actually works and you dont have to pay anything for that?

  12. sandeep says:

    Thanx,interesting photos there…

    I want to buy a kindle3 3g+Wifi.I’ve a friend in US,coming to India.I’m confused as to which one to have him purchase: a US edition kindle 3G (or) an International edition Kindle 3G in order to enjoy the internet access in India (Please clarify).
    I believe a power adapter is included only in the US edition.
    I’ll be awaiting your valuable advice.
