Amazon Kindle in a few setences

Although it supports unprotected Mobipocket books (.MOBI, .PRC), plain text files, and HTML and Word documents, Kindle also uses its own proprietary, DRM-restricted format (AZW).

It does not fully support Portable Document Format (PDF)

Many reviewers have expressed concern with the ergonomics of the Kindle. [18] Without its cover, it is difficult to hold onto without accidentally pressing one of the buttons.

The Kindle Terms of Use forbid transferring eBooks to someone else or using them on a different device.
