Excerpt: 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 that uses wireless connectivity to enable users to shop for, download, browse, and read e-books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, and other digital media in some countries. The Kindle hardware devices use an E Ink electronic paper display that shows up to 16 shades of gray, minimizes power use and simulates reading on paper. Several hardware devices support this platform, including a main qKindleq line and a parallel qKindle DXq line. The most recent Kindle device is the third incarnation of the main line, officially named qKindle, q but usually referred to as qKindle 3.q Kindle 3 was released on August 27, 2010. User reports indicate that the new display on the Kindle 3, with E Ink Pearl technology, is noticeably superior to prior 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. Amazon has also introduced Kindle software for use on various devices and platforms, including Microsoft Windows, iOS, BlackBerry, Mac OS X (at least 10.5 Leopard), Android and Windows Phone 7. ...Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
