I am fine with buying stuffs from somewhat known people, its hard to trust the strangers. So I will stick to new one this time.

Woah ......... Amazon says "Wifi+Free 4G Service" . Does kindle have "Free 4G Service" ?
Wi-Fi + free 4G uses the same wireless signals that cell phones use but with no monthly fees or commitments—Amazon pays for cellular connectivity. Using wireless connectivity to make other services available, such as wireless delivery of personal documents, may require an additional charge. For more information, see the Connectivity and Availability section of the Amazon Device Terms of Use

^Thank you! I will check about the 4G thing. But I am not going to buy that model since I just need Wifi connectivity.

Thanks a lot for all the suggestions once again!
I decided to go with Kindle Paperwhite.

Yes. That is correct.

It will automatically detect your Kindle model and allow you to manage your ebooks on it.

I connected the Kindle to PC but I don't know where the actual books are and in which directory should I transfer the books from PC to Kindle. As of now it shows the directories like this:

  1. Can I create my own directory here and will be able to open them in Kindle?
  2. Can I delete the books from Kindle on PC while browsing Kindle directory?
  3. Is Kindle memory works like a normal USB drive?

Just open calibre and it will automatically detect your books on the Kindle.
I launched the Calibre while Kindle was connected and I was able to see some books. But it is listing all the downloaded samples under book list. That was confusing. I am still learning the UI.

Yes, downloaded samples will be added to your Kindle library. You can delete them if you want.

I am getting hang of using the Calibre. Reading on kindle is different from books so that will take some time getting used to. Book conversion from PDF to AZW3 isn't that good. Lots of junk characters were added but I guess that would be because of some table/image in the original PDF file. Yet to try format conversion of plain PDF format book.

@pkkumarcool PDF files are mostly like images i guess. Because I could not find the option to increase the font. Only pinch zoom-in/out works of PDF files. And it performs slightly slow on PDF book. PDF format books will be good when the original book doesn't have too much margin around the text so you can read without zooming in.
