The Amazon Kindle is a portable e-book reader. More precisely, it is a
software, hardware and network platform developed by Amazon.com
subsidiary Lab126[1] that utilizes wireless connectivity to enable
users to shop for, download, browse, and read e-books, newspapers,
magazines, blogs, and other digital media in some countries.[2] The
Kindle hardware devices, like other e-reader devices, use an e-ink
electronic paper display that, in addition to displaying up to 16
shades of gray, minimizes power consumption and simulates reading on
paper.
Several hardware devices support this platform, including a main
"Kindle" line and a parallel "Kindle DX" line. The most recent Kindle
device is the third incarnation of the main line, officially named
"Kindle", but usually referred to as "Kindle 3".[3][4][5] Kindle 3 was
released on August 27, 2010.[6] User reports indicate that the new
display on the Kindle 3, with E Ink Pearl technology, is noticeably
superior to previous generations.
The Kindle DX line features larger screens than the main Kindle line
and is marketed as more suitable for displaying newspaper and textbook
content.[7] Amazon has also introduced Kindle software for use on
various devices and platforms, including Microsoft Windows, iOS,
BlackBerry, Mac OS X (10.5 onwards), Android and Windows Phone 7.[8]
Content for the Kindle can be purchased online and downloaded
wirelessly in some countries, using either standard Wi-Fi or Amazon's
3G "Whispernet" network.[9] Whispernet is accessible without any
monthly fee or wireless subscription,[10] although fees can be
incurred for the delivery of periodicals and other content when
roaming internationally beyond the customer's home country. Through a
service called "Whispersync", customers can synchronize reading
progress, bookmarks and other information across Kindle hardware
devices and other mobile devices.
