Product Description

The color Kindle edition of Forbes is now available on the Kindle Reading App for your Android device. Download issues at no extra cost from Archived Items.

Forbes magazine names the richest people and the biggest companies and covers global business stories with insight, solid sourcing, and the sort of groupie zeal usually reserved for fanzines. No merger, new ad campaign, or lawsuit goes unnoticed and stories always focus on the movers who are shaking things up. Read Forbes to make sense of today's volatile market--or just for the sheer pleasure of reading good reporting.

The Kindle Edition of Forbes contains most articles found in the print edition, but will not include all images and tables. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your Kindle at the same time the print edition hits the newsstand.

2.0 out of 5 stars Made in America for America 21 Aug. 2010
By Mum of the animals VINE VOICE
The Americian bias in the Kindle is, for me, one of its irritations. Forbes is a case in point of this over Yankee mindset. Nearly every business idea or businessman cited is American. The statistics are American. Now I am okay that America is a go-ahead, can-do country with outstanding entrepreneurs. However, surely once in a while a new concept comes from - wait for it - elsewhere. Not according to this magazine. So Forbes really does not live up to its promises - no merger, ad campaign etc., missed. There are interesting articles but it really has to cover much more of what's happening in the rest of the world to gain credibility amongst us Brits. I suspect asubscription to The Financial Times would be more interesting, global and authorative.

3.0 out of 5 stars Integrated spam is a problem 20 Feb. 2009
By H. Erickson - Published on Amazon.com
I just cancelled my Kindle subscription to Forbes. I have been a subscriber to the print version in the past and have had the Kindle version for about 6 months. I agree with the other comments concerning the poor graphics but that was tolerable. What was not tolerable was the recent issue. Included in virtually every story was an inserted offer to subscribe to the print version of the magazine. This offer was not at the beginning or the end or between articles but was randomly placed within the text of virtually every article. I found this disrupted the flow of the article and extremely annoying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good duplication of print content, but... 5 Sept. 2008
By Catherine Michael - Published on Amazon.com
I get the print edition of Forbes still and have been considering dropping it in favor of the Kindle edition to save paper and because I don't care whether I get the supplemental magazines (Forbes Life, etc.) that mainly show me how the other half (other 1%?) lives, but the previous reviewer complaint about tables/graphs on Kindle is on target:

For example, the recent issue with tables of Mutual Funds and ETFs showed only one of the tables (it is readable if you look really close). The half dozen other tables in the print edition were missing, with only a text line place holder.

This is not good, folks. Graphics are a problem on Kindles, but there is no excuse for including some tables or graphs that display OK and leaving out similar ones.

So far, I've found only the NYTimes does graphic newspaper content well, and the other magazines I've tried on Kindle are like text blogs, they don't do graphics at all.

There really is no excuse for this (Forbes, particularly with their pretention to be technologically with it, even with an article in that same issue on E-Ink and Kindle!). There is another Kindle format that some technical books are using ("TOPAZ", files have an AZW1 file extention).

Some Kindle books I've read in this format have a feature where when you click on a graphic, a "Zoom" option is added to the Kindle "Upper" ("highlight", "lookup", etc.) menu. Select "Zoom" and a half page hard-to-read chart is enlarged to full page and readable.

If we're going to pay good money for Kindle versions, the publishers should provide as close to print format and content as they can manage with the current state of Kindle technology. So far Forbes and most others aren't making the grade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine, need better editing for Kindle 13 Jun. 2008
By Amazonian - Published on Amazon.com
WSJ and Forbes are the two must-have's for people who cares about finance and investment. Forbes Kindle version covers the same stories as the printed version. Very informative, very nice commentaries.

My only complain is that some of tables are not readable in Kindle. They need better editing/formating. Uploaded is a piece of video: you cannot read the tables no matter what.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Pricing issue 28 May 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I just received an offer for a year's print subscription to Forbes for $21.99. Or, I can subscribe via Kindle for a year for $30.00...over 1/3 MORE. With the Kindle edition, the publisher doesn't have to print or mail yet the costs are higher. Duh. The content is the same (excellent) but the Kindle edition is inferior in pricing, and, from other reviewers, in formatting. USPS here I come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and convenient way to read Forbes. 28 Jun. 2011
By S. Power - Published on Amazon.com
When it comes to speed and convenience, there is no better way to read Forbes magazine. With almost no advertisements and minimal pictures, you just get the articles in a very concise and easy to read format. With wireless delivery, you get the magazine delivered to your Kindle, no matter where you are, as soon as it comes out.

I can't say enough how much I enjoy this version of Forbes. I am able to read it in half the time that a magazine usually takes me, and with it being in my Kindle am able to have it with me, whenever I'm looking for something to read.

Magazines and newspapers are the best thing about Kindle.
