About Kindle

The Kindle is an e-book reader designed by Amazon.com. With its different models, you can read, browse, and shop for different e-books, magazines, newspapers, and other forms of digital media. The first Kindle was introduced in 2007, and was named as such to describe the excitement and enlightenment that one gets from reading. Michael Cronan and Karin Hibma, who thought of the name, thought that the word used to describe lighting a fire would be the most fitting word. Since then, the Kindle has gone through a series of changes, introducing one device after another. Eventually, the Kindle application was also made available for those who would like to use Kindle’s services on other devices.
