The PDF and Kindle versions are both available at the top of the Kindle Documentation page.
This is for the Basic Kindle, 4th generation, without Touchscreen or Keyboard, $79 with Special Offers, and $109 without Special Offers.
Here are a few notes I took:
The Basic Kindle with no touchscreen or keyboard does have Previous and Next page buttons on both sides of the Kindle (as in past models), which makes it possible to hold it with one hand.
My favorite button the 'Back' button, and there's one here, on the left (bottom) and now a "Keyboard' button next to it, which will bring up a keyboard not unlike the diagram that is displayed when you press the "Sym key" on earlier Kindle 3's.
You can select alpha or numerical characters, one by one, for input. Very slowly, of course, but this is a model for those who don't do much typing while reading and who want the smallest, lightest e-reader.
Home and Menu buttons are there as well. The familiar 5-way controller is in the center of the row.
The Kindle "can be charged via connection to a computer."
The Kindle power adapter is sold separately. This is a first. One way to keep the price lower, I guess. But, what was that about Amazon Kindle customers not requiring a computer ?
Dictionary selection will be done with a click of the center of the 5-way controller and selecting "full definition" and ending with another center-click.
To view page numbers when they exist in a book, press the Menu button -- That means they have not made this optional for showing/hiding... a menu press is still needed to see page (and location) numbers.
I like that you can set the current local time, which was new with Kindle 3.
Despite the painful mode of inputting words or even phrases, the social network features such as Twitter and Facebook are available for sharing notes and highlights.
The Basic Kindle CAN highlight and annotate (slowly) PDF files (a newer feature they haven't given the DX Graphite (which costs $379 and was born 2 months before the Kindle 3, which uses the same Pearl screen).
Under Battery Safety the Guide reiterates:
" Your Kindle is not shipped with an AC adaptor. Your Kindle should only be charged using the USB
cable included with the device, or another USB cable approved for use with your Kindle, with
a compatible USB charger or USB port that meets the following requirements: USB-IF Battery
Charging Spec, Rev 1.2."
That's it. It's a very short User's Guide, which points you to Amazon online Help pages for more details.
